    I think its still music, just not the singers music. They're more of a marketing ploy.

    I think you're talking about pop. Rock, metal, jazz and many other genre's musicians are making their own music, they certainly can play their instruments and they don't need a computer to modify their voice.
    Don't overgeneralize!

    i went to the Reading festival last year, and i can assure you that they all played their own instruments + were singing live

    I shall be going to the Swallow Hill Folk and Roots Festival tonight. I'll pay close attention to see if the banjo player is lip-synching.

    Apart from keeping your socks clean, your powder dry, and saluting anything that moves, the other great survival trick is to beware of lip-synching banjo players.

    Indeed, they are to be avoided at all costs. Fortunately there was not the slightest evidence of lip-synching, dirty socks, and surprisingly, not even a banjo. With that sad exception, instruments expertly played and sung to ran the gamut from didgeridoos to Stratocasters. For those who bemoan the current state of musicianship, I suggest they are simply looking in the wrong places.

    Well said. There are many talented musicians out there, and to say that today's musicians can't play their instruments or sing well is definitely, as Elina said, overgeneralizing.

    Pain is a little old, but it's still relatively modern.

    I like the older stuff anyway. Ragtime, blues, bluegrass, as well as Indian, Gypsy and Latin styles. Modern music is not limited to modern styles, there are many who remember what real music was, and it will never be entirely forgotten, you just need to know where to look.

    You are clearly speaking about pop. Different music appeals to different people. Clearly untalented and ambitious individuals like listening to untalented and ambitious individuals.

    I hope there isn't a parallel with the way many of us seem to like reading posts by archie.

    Every generation says the next generations music sucks noodles. However, my generations music DOES suck noodles. Music died in the late 80s. A few good things have come out since then but 1 in a 1000 decent tracks. :wink:

    I don't see any indication that the good old days are gone. I'm a big "classic rock" fan, Led Zeppelin, Jethro Tull, Black Sabbath, that sort of thing. But that music isn't gone. There are new bands like The Black Keys and Wolfmother stepping up to the plate, bringing the old school stuff back.

    On a somewhat related matter, is anyone else annoyed to hear Nirvana and Metallica on classic rock stations?

    Yeah, I'm just about annoyed to hear them on any station. Or anywhere for that matter.
    :P
