From Don Cox: "The thesis was that recording has reduced the amount of live
Thirty years ago is not before recording became significant."
Certainly not MY thesis!
When being a musician in a group became trendy and glamorous in the '60s,
too many venue owners started exploiting people who were willing to play for
free. This drove down musicians' pay and turned what had been a path out of
poverty into an avocation of upper middle class folks holding day jobs. This
reduction of the talent pool reduced the quality of the live music the
average person encountered and that in turn made going out to hear live
music lots less appealing.
