When e uses the line “rags to rags and rust to rust” no one thinks he’s stealing from Neil Young. e is laying claim to a musical tradition, and rightfully so i believe. besides turning a poetic phraase, he’s saying, this is whaer i fit in, this is where i come from, this how i see my work. sure, he’s treding in the fottsteps of others, but he’s bring something new to it, himself. that’s genuine. that’s not stealing or mimicry, it’s creativity.
