Re: Something to Ponder
Its all about money and in these times of MTV and the internet image is that big selling point. Sadly alot of people with great images are lousy musicians, and big record companies have clearly stated their preference.
Days of hearing Zeppelin and the Doors on your big hits radio station are over. Best we can do is hope the money shifts back to musical ability because sadly money is what moves the beast. Sorry if this seems a little jaded.
"And that makes sense. After all, today we have models and actors whose faces and bodies were never intended by nature, reality TV that’s not real, and sports “heroes” whose strength comes from pills not practice. It’s totally understandable that the commercial pop world would embrace an unnatural aesthetic. Whether audiences will someday want pop singers who are first and foremost singers remains to be seen."
