Re: My rant on today's pop music
I think that their are two sides to this argument; both with very valid points. As much as one side may feel that their arguments have fallen of deaf ears, I think the other side feels the same way. You can't stifle creativity by saying that this or that sound or music is invalid. But you can call it as it is when you say that a lot of this music has little or no artistic merit and it's made by people with little or no artistic ability, as well intentioned and passionate as they may be.
I actually like Pearl Forums. When you teach a lot of beginners with their crappy sets you're happy when one actually has something that sounds okay.
