Money has ruined Music..and now it's just NOISE!

What happened to the good old days when musicians were really musicians? The days when people sang because they absolutely loved to sing and would sing whether the make money or not, and they could ACTUALLY SING?? The likes of Aretha Franklin, James Brown, Elvis Presley, Freddy Mercury, Bob Marley... These people were born to sing and they blessed us with such wonderful music.. today its a different story. We just have a bunch of teeneagers who think they can sing and yet all they actually to is scream into their microphones, get a computer generated software to modify their voices and make such noise that our ears drums are bursting out. Worse off the majority of so called musicians are all just one hit wonders.. They sing a song today tomorrow they are forgotten.. But real musicians are still living legends.. the likes of Elton John, Michael Jackson, Prince, Bon Jovi, U2.. Its all about money today.. all the money has ruined music.. So I say bring back the real musicians who make our lives brighter and get rid of these ruggamuffins who are polluting the music industry..

Oh yes i would agree with that....these days i have observed that the so called musicians just pick up any old song,remix it with some nice techno beats and sell it again......my question is where is the originality ????? you are right the old musicians were definitely legends.....they did not need any software to modulate their voice.....they had the capacity to do it on their own......also the lyrics, there was so much of meaning to it.....now, nothing just few catchy lines which goes about all through the song.......I hope the old legends resurrect back and give us some original music....

music and technology - shows what is used in enhancing a bad, hopeless musical voice to a great voice.
today is more of a combination of a "little" voice as a talent and a lot of technical ingenuity of musical directors or producers or whatever. some singers have great voices but if they lack the artistic backup of technology they would only reach a limited no. of audience.
