nah....there is a lot of great stuff out today, you just have to hunt for it.Everywhere you look someones using 70's music. Films, TV Ads.....Samples....todays so called great artists covering them...it goes on.
Say what you like the 70's was the era of melody either cheesy or serious. It was all catchy and interesting all of it, from Peters and Lee to Kansas to Cool and the Gang, ABBA, Queen, MJ.....melody, without it u got nothing....today, we've got nothing.
For a brief time in the 90's I thought the same thing, then I just got away from mainstream everything...there is a glorious world underneath that bleak, plastic first layer!!!
