If you can't sing, can't play an instrument and don't write your own songs, how in the name of Elvis are you considered a music 'star'?


And why not ask MTV if they ever get the feeling they've been cheating us all along?

Setting aside the fact that MTV hasn't been about music for decades, why do you think they, or any TV network for that matter, owe you a goddamn thing?

Don't you love then artists disparaged by Cowell succeed?

As ever, we're missing out, we're being conned and sold a soulless sanitised version of what music should be about.

Oh yes, it's so much worse today than when O-bla-di, O-bla da came out.

And, yes, it used to be about something.

No, it wasn't. Or, at least, it was no better than today.

I showed my kids (well, forced them to watch) a Sex Pistols documentary recently (on an arts channel, no less) and they were agog.

The music didn't interest them one iota.

Of course it didn't, because punk has always been f*cking terrible and unlistenable. Especially the Sex Pistols. I mean Jesus. The Sex Pistols? Really?

Man, I miss writers who wrote paragraphs of more than one sentence.

What a whiney cliche-ridden wanker.

Dear Mr. Harrison

   There is this thing called the internet and it has sites such as YouTube and what not where all kinds of musicians can put their music without being involved with TV, record companies and the lot. Believe it or not there is lots of excellent music being made and distributed independently. This makes it a truly great time to be a musician and fan of music. Perhaps your not finding anything good to listen to because you're looking in the wrong f*cking places. Just sayin'.
