    I guess if one were to turn on the radio then they could be considered a band.

    Who would you prefer??

    A musician who plays a limited selection to please himself.

    Of an entertainer, of any type, who pleases his audience??

    For a DJ to be considered a musician, than his equipment would have to be considered a musical instrument.
    That would make Milli Vanilli singers and we all know the truth on that one!
    An artist perhaps, a performer definitely, but without an actual musical instrument you are not a musician, IMO.
    So how about DJ's start carrying a kazoo to their gigs with them and use them...would that make things any better?

    Here's my take on this. I am a musician. I have dedicated 10+ years to playing several instruments. To learn the instrument it takes time, dedication, and a lot of patience. Is it really fair to suggest a DJ is a musician because he/she can take the music made by other people and put a spin on it? I would consider a DJ to be an artist if they were actually putting their own spin on the music they play, but ONLY if they used some form of creativity to alter the song in some way.

    Also, doing a cover of a song deserves more credit than a DJ remixing a song. Musicians are playing instruments to remake the song, DJs are not. A turntable is not an instrument, neither is a digital studio application in which remixes are often made. The end result may be music but that does not give the DJ the credit of being a musician.

    I just checked the Musician's Hall of Fame & Museum and everyone there got there on their own merit. For the most part they all own record players, c-d players, tape players but they all got elected to the hall through their own writing, singing, playing, what have you. Not a DJ in the crowd, surprised? I'm not.
