music go. I am really getting bummed out folks. This weekend while I did have one day of some fun with the wine bottle I did have some time to reminisce about what has happened to music in the last few years. I mean seriously I don't feel like I am completely out of the mix but I feel we do not have real live musicians anymore I feel we have synthesizers and producers to make so so singers sound amazing. I mean I am a child of the 80's music so we had our share of one hit wonders but we had a rush of some amazing new bands - Metallica, Guns n Roses, Motley Crue, Aerosmith into the nineties w/ Nine Inch Nails, Nirvana, Pearl Jam the list goes on and on. This weekend a group of "old timers" were sitting around reminiscing about how awesome it was going to concerts, the pre parties in the parking lots of the stadiums just some really good times - while we were skipping down memory lane, our next door neighbor friends said something typical of an 18 year old...Ahh you guys ...that is just old stuff blah blah blah. I asked the 18 yr old what new music has come out lately that had made a difference to him and his generation if he had been to any concerts lately - and 1. he could not name one band & 2 @ 18 had never been to one concert.
To me that is sad. Unless things change this generation will never know real music. They have one hit wonder on itunes like tardy for the party and that annoying 15 year old with that Friday song. Justin Bieber (ewwwww). Lady Gaga I can deal with but even with her everything has been done before - Grace Jones perfected her so called "new look" years ago.
Everything just sounds so generic and over processed. Am I being to sensitive or it there some truth to what I am saying?
