A musician and a jukebox have many similarities but they are very different as well.
Both stand before people and can fill the environment with information in a way that has a most profound effect on those who hear.
Both get fed money in order to perform. One could say that both are paid for their services.
Both have a mechanism of sorts that enables the flow of music to come out.
But jukeboxes are not musicians because musicians are human beings with infinite qualities, uniqueness and personality.
Jukeboxes on the other hand are not musicians. They are machines. Impersonal, clinical, emotionless mechanisms which respond to the demands at a pay-point as a coin is inserted into the appropriate slot and the specifically chosen music (if it is programmed into the system) is automatically reproduced exactly like the original.
A clinical transaction dominates this mechanism.
“No pay, No play” is the national anthem as well as the hymn of worship.
There is no emotion, love nor passion in any of this. There are no feelings, no joy, expectation, passion and no remorse. This is all a legally sanctioned set of transactions which if violated will incur legal penalties articulately specified and clinically enforced.
A jukebox is a pay-on-demand mechanism which serves those who insert coinage in so that it plays their specified tune on demand. But one could say that it mainly serves the owner and master of the jukebox who takes all the profits. The owner and master from time to time opens up the guts of the jukebox and removes the bounty, leaving the jukebox empty and once again ready to be refilled for more profit to be extracted at a later time.
There are no jukeboxes that are musicians.
They cannot be musicians because they are not humans. After all they are machines.
However, there are many musicians who are jukeboxes.
