Music 'fans' can be somewhat tribal in their loyalties and often react badly when one of their 'heroes' tries something new - Bob Dylan being jeered and booed at the Newport Folk Festival when he used an electric guitar is the most obvious example of it.
Musicians, on the other hand, will listen to all kinds of music and love good music wherever it comes from. Willie Nelson in the fourth video here explains it well.
And when different genres meet the results are sometimes alarming and sometimes charming but there are no boundaries in music.
Pavarotti meets the Godfather of Soul-
Jimmy Page collides with Chopin
a Highwayman meets a crooner
Menuhin and Grapelli
Hope you enjoy these, selected from countless examples.
