Getting Past the Industry to Love Music Again
Lewis Black says it all for me this week...
06/23/08 at 08:53 AM by Adam Pfleider
I was really in a rut of what I was going to write about this week. I'm also trying to get my things together for the Russian Circles interview I'm doing tonight, but then I turned on Larry King last night and Lewis Black was ranting about American Idol.

To see his rant go to the 2:00 mark of the following video:

Black brings up a good point. Skipping steps. But hasn't the Internet skipped the steps as well. Anyone can set up a Myspace or Purevolume page in mere hours, play a few shows (or in the case of Panic at the Disco-- none) and get signed in the months to come. While Black makes a damn good point about the drudge that is American Idol and the millions of records that aren't bought by the same people who spent money to vote, one has to think if there really is a road to making it big anymore. Where is our generations Zeppelin or Sabbath? Will Radiohead make the same impact on our children as the Beatles have us? Will anyone really care about Cute Is What We Aim For in ten years. Hell, even Daughtry for that matter?

I also leave today with my condolences to a great man. You will be missed.
