So back to Bireli, I'd actually like to hear what is it that he would like to do musically if he didn't have to worry about paying the bills whatsoever?

And what exactly does "authentic" mean applied to music?

Knowing him, I'd answer, that it's not about what he would do musically but he's just someone who wants to do what he feels like, and to constantly feel the pressure of being expected to do one thing gets to him.
So whatever he feels like doing will change from day to day. If he feels like playing Django style, he will. That said, he really loves electric guitar stuff. He was practicing the violin really hard a while back, but unfortunately he stopped. Anyway, Bireli does what he wants :-)

In my mind and in this context, right or wrong, "authentic" means expecting to hear something but instead hearing something else.

I guess that means Django wasn't "authentic" in the 50s.
One definition of authentic is "Of undisputed origin and not a copy". On that basis, none of the gypsy jazz music played today is authentic as it is all to some degree a copy.
