According to those who know about such matters, the music industry is in crisis. No one buys music anymore, preferring to get it for free from t’interweb, yadda, yadda, yadda – naughty World Wide Web.
However, maybe the music biz is crumbling to its knees because those releasing records are a tiny bit rubbish. Where are the real soul men in 2012? Those musicians that can evoke the Reverend Al Green just by singing the first few lines of Let’s Stay Together? Those singers with the gravitas, the real-life experience and the voices to transport us to new and faraway places?
Ask yourself this: who would you rather have sing to you in soulful, mellifluous tones, LMFAO or the President of the United States?
