Anyone seen this vid? There is a part specifically about drums at around 9.30. Interested to get your views on it.
Indeed, though it is tough for most non-musicians to understand that "music sold by the entertainment industry" is not representative of the state of the trade. There's very little money to be siphoned out of virtuosity and unorthodox artistic endeavors, and I'm actually fairly grateful that the industry leaves most of us alone.This guy is a douche, and his presentation is incredibly slanted to present a particular conclusion. He's cherry picking specific examples. Other people with far more cred are saying that music today is pretty awful, at least in the pop music scene. Where it's really happening is in the underground and indie scene - there's some great stuff happening there, but none of that is mainstream.
