Rock and Roll Doesn’t Rock No More

March 21, 2023


Rock and roll doesn’t rock no more.
It’s turned middle age and become a bore.
It’s everything it used to oppose.
Rock and roll doesn’t rock no more.

Rock and roll is corporate and dull.
It’s phony music that’s lost its soul.
It’s paint-by-number and rotten to the core.
Rock and roll doesn’t rock no more.

Rock and roll has got to go.
Base, drums, and guitars are so so-so.
Enough of the clones of clones of clones.
Rock and roll doesn’t rock no more.

Rock and roll has got to go.
Its taken 60 years but now it’s so.
It’s lost the beat and doesn’t roll.
Rock and roll doesn’t rock no more.

Rock and roll doesn’t rock no more.
It’s a has-been and It’s your father’s olds.
It’s spirit is gone and the choir all knows
Rock and roll doesn’t rock no more.

Letter to Journalists

March 6, 2023

Letter to Music Journalists:

The music press should be about journalism not promotion.
When that returns, journalists will ask these tough questions of the music industry:

1 Should 3 CEOs control the entire music industry like they do now?
2 For twenty years sales have been half of what they were in 1999, why
3 Why does music never change? Never new stars or net trends?
4 Do you think auto tune is fake music to hide people without talent?
5 One percent of musicians make 70% of all the money, should they also make 70% of the charitable contributions?
6 Do you approve of NPR revenue sharing deals?

Singers Support

January 25, 2023

Singers, does your tummy stick out before you sing every line?If not then you are not breathing for singing. 2 hours of training on how to breathe for singing, can give you more tone, larger high and low vocal range , better sounding voice, a stronger voice, and a voice more in tune. Then you can sing much better. Go online and learn how. Its awkward at first but easy to learn.
I compare this as important to a singer, as learning Barre chords is to learning to play guitar. No excuses, allowed!

Auto tune sounds like Astro turf looks!

The auto tuned singers are out!
Fake and phony is done!
Leave that noise for elevators!
Musicians are moving on!

Yes it is official in music
The auto tuned era is done
Fake is over, and real is back!
Which side are you on?
