You know, hating boy bands and overexposed but marginally talented radio bands is not the solution. I think all bad things today, from a musician's standpoint, can be traced to disco. First, disco made live bands unpopular and gave celebrity status to the D.J. We've NEVER recovered. You ask most people from high school age and up and they would rather dance, party, wed, whatever, to a D.J. rather than a band. Second, disco deemphasized musicianship and replaced it with repetitive drum tracks, programmed stuff, synths, etc. Rap IMO is just an off-shoot from it. Techno, the same thing. I'm not saying that those genres are without merit. However, they sacrifice what I call "musicality." Songwriting has fallen victim to all of this and I think struggles to this day. At least as to popular acceptance. I like boy bands for the simple fact that they get girls screaming, which is a good thing. I don't like their music though. If elected to anything, I would propose legislation banning the playing of anything by Boston on the radio. Their songs have simply been played too much. But our common enemy is disco and the continued role of the D.J. They are who I wish would disappear.
