From Graeme Jaye: "...The saddest thing is the public who attend these
venues don't even
care very much. They are just as happy with a poor solo act (with
backing tracks of dubious quality, downloaded illegally) as they would
be with a ten piece band..."
I tried very hard to give my daughter the kinds of musical experiences that
led me to choose a career in music. They turned out to be virtually
unavailable in the San Francisco area during late 1980s and it's even worse
A musical performance can be a life changing experience but no mere
recording has ever done that for me. Kids just assume that music is just a
fashion statement because that's all they've ever experienced. The only
thing that can "fix" the music business is a resurgence of truly great live
music that kids will encounter and can afford to go out and hear more of.
