Re: Creativity Discouraged in Today's Popular Music?
I think every decade had its brand of mass marketed popular music designed to click as the lowest common denominator at the front end of the music business.
It actually should have been called business music....
I think when we look back at the rich and long lasting legacy of 'all that is great music' or great artists, I think they have mostly all come through the ranks rather unexpectedly. Be it the Beatles, Stones, Zep right down to the composers of your username, they have been the exceptions rather than the rule.
Its a different thing altogether that time has a way of turning the maverick into Mr. Establishment.
I guess that explains Steely Dan also being heard in some hotel elevators nowadays.
