Here's the thing.  Human beings are generally beautiful well intentioned people.  We forget bad things.  I mean sometimes bad things happen that scorch your brain and you never forget it, but in general, we forget all the midly bad things that happen to us.  Ask somebody how the first week of May was this year.  NO WAY IN HELL they're going to remember anything bad from it, but there's a small chance they'll remember something good from it.

It's human nature.

So in the 50's, and the 60's, and the 70's, there were a TON of shitty bands.  I mean lots of them.  MOST of them, we've forgotten, because we forget bad things.  The only 'bad' bands that get remembered over time, are bands that really weren't completely awful, it's just for whatever reason they made it huge and you personally didn't lke them, so they're rememberable not because you hate them, but because so many other people like them and you don't understand why.

Like Tiny Tim.  He was pretty god awful.  However, he made it big and lots of people liked him and his music... so he stands out, in some people's minds, as a bad singer or bad musician.  He's 10 times better, though, than all the TRULY crappy bands that were out in the 60's, that we've since forgot because there was absolutely no redeeming quality to their music. 

So I think that while there may not be as many brilliant musicians out now as there may have been in the past, there's not more 'bad' bands, it's just their fresh and we still remember them. 
There's good post in there. Half-agree & half-disagree with it. But surely there's logic in what Ron said.

I dislike modern music, things I hear by radio. As KDS, I wouldn't like to spend time listening to new bands & singers, to get thru to find good songs. It could take literally yrs.

Short notice: the cat you see to the left is the best. Not counting your indoor cat who might have habit sitting at your left side when you post at SmileySmile.

Droopy & Snoopy, respectively ugly & cute dogs, swapped places in cartoon history which brought havoc to either side.

At Halloween, Smiley posters should be disguised with smiley face masks. PS posters should be in green-brown costumes & each member imitates by mouth their favorite sounds. Easy, ain't it?

Thanks for bumping this, RR. I haven't laughed so much in a long time. LOL
