          I already knew I hate radio. From the 1980's when I was trying to help work records I'd worked on. It's a corrupt snake pit full of tin ears. Just like the rest of the music biz.

          The real question for me always is, why would I want to try to make music in styles that I find annoying beyond tolerance and then try to sell that music through people I have utter contempt for to artists I think are complete garbage?

          The people on these panels are among the first I'd put up against the wall...


          There's new music I love, but almost entirely, it is the music that is growing up through the cracks in the concrete. And these industry types are the concrete.

              Up against the wall, Fred.



              That's the music politics I grew up with (although the band was, in many ways, past their prime at that point) but look what happened to the vocal core of that band when they decided to sell out.

              Can anyone look at the complete and utter tripe that the Starship put out and think that there was any musical, artistic or cultural merit in the devolution from the Jefferson Airplane to the commercial enterprise known as the Starship? Meanwhile, the musicians from the Airplane stayed true to their music. They didn't end up making as much money, but Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady have a lot of good music in their wake -- and they still have their musical integrity, something that certainly can't be said for Grace, Paul, and Marty.

              It was 1969, the height of the Vietnam war. Every week, there were hundreds of casualties and many deaths among US soliders -- and many times more among the Vietnamese. Richard Nixon, who had promised to 'end the war in six months' in 1968 was settling in for a long ride -- and a long war.

              Meanwhile, the music biz was trying desperately to get us to buy "Yummy Yummy Yummy, I Got Love in My Tummy."

                  I think I remember showing the lyric sheet to my mom (the album came out right around the time I was graduating high school) and saying, see, they don't say what you think they say. She was not fooled. She actually liked some of the folk-rock stuff on Surrealistic Pillow.

                    It's an incredibly white and awkward "mother****************er" but "mother****************er" it clearly is. On a somewhat related note, Miles Davis is the all-time king of "mother****************er" usage, both on quality and quantity.

                          What i did read, I'll say they are right; pick a genre you like and try to fit in. I'm always skeptical of what-to-dos that come out of Nashville. They're always so colored by the Nashville Country machine. hardly anybody I admire comes through there. Darrell Scott. But he's pretty anti-country at the same time as being classified as country. (read the words to Long Time Gone).

                          I went to a Nashville Songwriter's meeting once. Got a critique by some guy over a internet video link. He reportedly had won a few awards as a co-writer on a few hit country tunes. He was working positively with others in the meeting who had songs with the most mundane lyrics in the world. I'd shoot myself in the head if that's the best my mind would come up with. When it got to my song, he looked confused and called it "Canadian." And said it had no commercial value whatsoever. I actually love a lot of Canadian Folk artists and found it a backhanded compliment.

                          I have to wonder about a song that has 6 or 7 people credited as writers. Like what'd you do to get credit, change a verb tense? Wow, that's being creative.

                          But still the point is well taken that you should pick a genre you like, study what works in that genre, and see if you can make your creation fit into it. Music is about communication. If nobody understands what you've communicated, you haven't communicated anything.
