Is this an actual quote, or just a 'quote'. Show me I'm wrong if he
did, but as far as I'm aware Cage never said that he 'didn't care'
about his music, and this is nothing more than a popular and
unfortunately persistent misrepresentation. Even a casual examination
of his work and methodology provides much evidence to the contrary,
IMHO.
