There's something in that I guess.
For me, the bottom line for DJing is this - and it took me a few years to work this out, but I got there in the mid-90s - you have to do your own thing and play what you feel comfortable playing. Try not to follow fashions, stick with what you like and keep going. Fashions can be good for revealing good old music, but still, do what feels right for you. All the best DJs who I respect have followed that path.
Many of the godfathers have much to teach us about the art and craft of music selection and DJing. If you think about it, many of the top DJs around today were tutored or influenced by some of the pioneers.
My favourite DJs are Jose Padilla, David Mancuso, more recently Harvey, and a couple of English guys you won't know but I'll give them props anyway - Moonboots and McCready from Manchester. I've learned things from listening to their sets etc. etc. Also Bill Brewster is an inspiration for his love of music and his ethos of 'who ****ing cares who made it, if i like it and it's good i'll buy it'.
I'm even boring myself now, so I'll stop. Haha.
