Rock, Paper, Scissors

In today's over-copyright-driven world, everyone claims credit for re-inventing the wheel. Thus, I found this quote refreshing.

Lou Reed, speaking on lineage in music: "I'm not gonna claim credit for, like, a chord change. Chord changes were around for years before me. Rock came out of gospel, which came from the churches. The church came before me."
