Re: Joe Walsh - The truth about music
Depends on genre. I agree with it in terms of what has become of the mainstream pop culture. At least here in the USA, I don't know if it's the same way in other countries so I can't speak for that. It's purely formulaic sewage. Seems much of Country has or is going the same direction as well.
I'm sure it has something to do with time and money saves (much like reality TV).
Jo Jo Mayer made a point of saying something like this in one of his clips I saw a while ago as well. To boot, he called out drummers on it.
I don't listen to this style so for me, it doesn't apply and I don't care. But for those that do, it's a shame to some degree. But then again it's what most people under the age of 20 (just throwing out a number) know. To them it's supposed to be this way.
