I want to thank Tom Thomas, T61 refugee and Facebook friend for turning me onto this documentary:
Here’s a clip from one of the key segments:
Very enlightening and sad too. Boring, manufactured music rules the airwaves and talented musicians can’t get record deals. Our children are growing up not knowing the difference between a musician and a product. That needs to stop. When will the next Elvis or John Lennon or Kurt Cobain arrive and shake things up? When will we have another punk rock or hip hop revolution? We are way way overdue. Have people devolved to the point where they can’t recognize real music anymore? In my opinion, no. When the kids hear something real again on a massive scale, they will recognize it, and it’s going to change things. There are exciting things happening on the Internet, and something is going to come along and break the industry wide open again. I can feel it.
