Let's face it people are in love with the image of these so called musicians not how well they play their instruments or sing or both. This all started with MTV. When someone who really knows their music puts out a good CD we are blown away because it's such a rare thing now. You have to search real hard to find such music. Meanwhile the mainstream music industry keeps cranking out the same bland stuff and are in charge of the monopolized airwaves. In my town the same company (Clear Channel) owns 80% of the radio stations. I remember when FM used to be a place you could hear a whole album side with no commercials. It was sort of an underground scene. Now it's mainstream and they promote the same crud the music industry thinks we want to hear.
