2. He acknowledged (in the comments) that these days ARR is indulging in factual inaccuracy.
3. Most importantly, he admitted that just because ARR gave cassette credits doesn't mean IR is not great for not doing so.adhu adhu, appidi va da thapli.

The problem, as commented by Sureshji on that milliblog FB page, is that of comparing passionate IRF's with ARR's paid propaganda machinery (Murthy, Srinivas).

Never will such passionate IRF's get any endorsement from rAsA for their views - simply because they are not (necessarily) HIS. And, such comments / articles / statements etc simply come from ordinary people who simply write their feelings out of gratitude for the great music, not getting any penny from maestro. They are never OFFICIAL statements of IR.

OTOH, "orchestra revival", "high-speed-composing" kind of falsehoods are from paid workers of ARR's studio and it is highly possible that those are endorsed or even designed by ARR & his team.

Both should not be compared & confused.

Exactly! This is what I have been screaming all these years. There is a huge difference in IR not crediting fellow musicians vs ARR crediting. ARR has to do it otherwise his conscience will prick him as they are not his original compositions, it is a team work (I would even add that even this crediting is not enough as the 'composer' tag in every album cover only bears his name and only in the musicians tags others appear which would give a false impression that they only played). With respect to IR, he need not do that as every note we hear is from IR's brain and IR only, not stolen from others. Even there as App ji pointed out, he as credited when needed. Every time this issue has been blown out of proportion with such silly comparisons.

*Documenting for posterity*

In the same interview Murthy saar did mention that singers are allowed to improvise and if what they do is good it will be included. Like Nithyashree once commented in ASS, singers go in as singers and come out as co-composers.

so Milli the neetral observer is playing arbiter now whtya fall from arrmp3 days  laugh 
end of the say isn't that composer's prerogative to name/not to name the players, what has
end listener get by knowing whether the flute is played by Arunmozhi or Sudhakar unless you are a 100 word reviewer who fills up by compiling the album credits..say Raaja uses 50 piece orchestra records 10 songs over 5 albums in a day, wouldn't giving credits be a exercise in futility? comparing this to all the canards spread by AR/associates..adhum/edhum onna  Evil or Very Mad

Did she really say that ? One episode I saw Unnikrishnan wanted to say something like that , but he curtailed himself and said, "I will let her say it herself".
I doubt any of these musicians will come out and claim too much credit in public .. they need Rahman (after all one who comes up with the tune is the king) and they get a fantastic pay check !!! It is like being in one or the other personality dominated "Dravidian" parties :-)

From what we have seen in the vinyl covers thread of this site, it is clear that Raaja tried to get the instrumentalists name in the cassette and records, but got super busy and couldnt follow through on it. So even this slide attack on Raasa doesnt stick. Yaedho these fellows with blogs think they can preach anything to anyone, little realising that everytime they open their big mouth it is only their bias and hatred towards real genius that oozes out and not an honest opinion.

DM had shared this forbes article about ARR's so called spontaneity.  Well, I have finished reading the book  - Peter Bergman's 18 minutes - he referred to in that article.  Er, the 18 minutes Bergman talks about has no relation to ARR's statement that he only spends 20 minutes, max 30 on composing in a day.  The 18 minutes Bergman talks about are intended to focus your mind on your AGENDA.  5 minutes in the morning, a 1 minute refocus every hour and 5 minutes in the evening.  That is NOT creation, ideation time at all, that is organising time.  I don't know why journalists pretentiously reference books that are unrelated to the article.  This is not even cooleth, it's just dumb once you know what the book is actually about.

Hope you also watched the episode where ARR's musicians where invited. One of them said this 'I started as a composing player'. I didn't understand it then and it'd be great any of you guys could explain this 'term' to me. What does it mean?

This was on my FB feed today.

https://www.facebook.com/arrahman/posts/10151958706431720

"Why do people only know me as Mozart of Madras. I really wish people would compare me with Beethoven also. Sigh, no one makes this comparison even though I was the first one to introduce orchestral music in India"

*Contemplates, updates fb status*

"I am embarrassed that my fans call me Beethoven of Bollywood. I am humbled, but please don't say such things".
