I was going to say something along those lines...
MUSIC television has long since ceased to air music. Instead, its noise. Rhythmic noise.
As someone said in an earlier post, these posers are nothing more than showmen/women. They look good in flashy clothes. They can dance. And that is where the talent ends. That is also where their desire to actually create music ends. They want to create a bankroll. And for those of you who don't know, a large majority of the 'artists' (and I use that term VERY loosely) don't even write their own music. Someone else writes it for them. They're just the performing monkeys......
Whereas musicians such as myself are filling the stereotypical 'starving musician' role, where we actually perform real music, understand what the little black dots on the page mean....but, we dont all look good in a tight pair of $500.00 designer jeans. (if I had $500.00 to spend on a pair of designer jeans, that sounds like a good down payment on an AR.....)
It is for this reason that I no longer watch television. It is for this reason that I only listen to the radio when it is in someone else's control (at work, in someone's car, Docs office, etc).
Music is a dying art....
