      Big record labels and the fact that you can find any song for free in the internet are destroying most genres of music...very sad, just a matter of time

        I think what is being destroyed is the mega-empire recording labels. The business model is growing more and more obsolete. The burgeoning small studio/ home studios are putting out pro quality recordings at a fraction of the cost of big labels. And the once impenetrable distribution chain has been broken. Anybody can post their music on-line where everyone who wants it can have it at a fraction of what a record co. would charge.

        Anybody can do it now...with out the overhead of a giant corp.

          I almost don't listen (to radio) much, anymore. Occasionally, will "surf" around the dial (AM and FM), just for a listen ... in case there's something going-down that I'd missed lately.

          I write / compose a lot of original material. I find I have more inspiration by not listening to other's music, lest I be influenced, even subliminally (ref: the "He's So Fine" / "My Sweet Lord" controversy and lawsuit).

            That's just it...is that a good thing??

            The mega-empire recording labels going down means several things in my mind. It's FANTASTIC for the musicians. It's MUCH easier to get your stuff out in today's market without having to become part of a major label.

            On the other hand it's HORRIBLE for the listeners (those of us looking for GOOD new music) because the market is completely flooded with garbage. The problem, in my mind, is that the big labels are doing exactly what they always have done, trying to make money. And unfortunately the money today comes from the big pop stars. Who unfortunately make horrible music. (I understand this is all relative, but who can seriously claim that anything by Brittney Spears is honest to goodness talent-based production).

            At least with a record label you had to work really hard to get noticed. And the crap would be left in the underground (not the other way around).

              thats right so when they have a money maker they milk all they can from it .. when that starts to dry up they find a clone.
              Chet Atkins was playing his guitar when a woman approached him. She said, "That guitar sounds beautiful". Chet immediately quit playing. Staring her in the eyes he asked, "How does it sound now?"

                  That's the problem.

                    yeah, being the 18-year-old young pup I am, I've noticed most of the bands that come out now make it with one or two hits off of an album then fade away... unless they conform to some sort of pop-based "sound"... Green Day, Linkin Park, Foo Fighters.. all of them had big runs where they were the biggest thing on the planet for a while, but all of them faded out to a degree... I think they just get so much exposure and money that they can just sit back and not worry about writing good stuff...

                    I think groups like Lifehouse, Counting Crows, Dave Matthews Band, Ben Folds and John Mayer will prove to stick around a while... they have solid fan bases and write out of love for music... unlike a lot of them who once they hit it big just keep writing to produce the next Top 40 hit...

                    ..and no I'm not just a fanboy for all of those groups... I dig Lifehouse, but haven't really listened to the others very much...

                      Lifehouse?

                      Hmmm ....

                      I remember Lighthouse ("One Fine Morning"), however.

                        I remember lifehouse they did the hanging by moment song.

                        Dave Matthews still tours without end, and I'm surprised the counting crows faded away as much as they did, it's like they just ran out of material

                          The state of music is Texas and sometimes California.

                          That will be all.
