Remember when NARAS and the majors used to be able to strut out artists like REM, Springsteen, Stevie Wonder (before he was terrible) and Johnny Cash? The state of commercial music has likely never been worse. I mean, do people really think Alicia Keys has talent? This was Clive's last *huge* find? Yikes.
Thank god for the thousands of artists sitting under the radar still making great music.
Now I need to turn the channel before I punt my TV to Daly City.
