There are a lot of great bands & musicians & pop tunes out there at present…
But sadly it’s the BACKED dribble & the bile that keeps coming to the fore - makes money - and in turn keeps the sh!te coming.
Whereas ‘the good musicians’ try to survive as long as they can on small record labels with tiny budgets.
I get to meet a lot of young musicians - and the common story is: broke, part time jobs, living with their parents, sleeping on mates sofas, constantly touring to get the daily expense, buying their own tour van etc
But then again they don’t have to worry about Mortgages, Bills, etc… So maybe they have it OK
