    It seems the ever expanding number of deaths in the musical community are increasing at a rapid pace. From week to week, over the last 3-5 years in particular, the world community has lost many amazingly, awe-sinspiring artists. David Bowie, B.B. King, Lemy Kilmister, Glenn Frey, George Martin, Percy Sledge, Maurice White, Jack Bruce, ect., ect.
    My concern lies in the simple fact that there are either too few artists or too little enthusiasm/respect for the "old school" grooves. Who will replace or expand upon their absence? What is the future of legitimate talent in the realm of manufactured hits, auto tune, beat sequencers, pitch correctors, ect.?Where does the future of music lie?

    Your thoughts...?

    real musicianship will come back. eventually people will tire of digitally manufactured stuff and look for something better. it doesn't seem as though artists need a big label to back their debut. all they have to do now, apparently, is post a cute or otherwise interesting video of a song with a catchy hook on youtube and let the internet crowd do the rest. if it works for the tween-pop crowd why not for the old school crowd?

    I remain skeptical. Bieber is an obvious product of intent filled manufacture.

    Take Timberlake of ten years ago. He, as the Biebs, was a mallible concept of a modern, blue-eyed soul singer. The difference is that Timbetlake can sing, persuasively, a cover of a Marvin Gaye classic at Motown '45.

    Rap/hip hop has been debased. Tupac and Biggie would be ashamed by the likes of Fetty Wap, Future, G Eazy, Lil Wayne, Waka Flaka, ect...
