Re: Joe Walsh - The truth about music
Well first, it's an opinion. So it's legit in itself - that's what opinions are, right?
Secondly, it's a generalised statement. Sure it doesn't apply to everything out there, but that's the nature of generalised statements. I do see the point and unfortunately, he's damn right overall (that's my opinion).
Whatever the global situation on music production - do whatever you deem right, don't sacrifice music for anything (e.g. commercial success) and try achieving the highest degree of satisfaction that you can get (being overwhelmed by your music when listening back to it after many years, rather than having to feel ashamed). What more can we do anyway?
