I used to feel this way when I would see what I considered "crap" music making millions, little by little I understood that it is a business, as someone said, they probably don't write a single note, they have hit songwriters, and top of the line producers, that do everything.

So then there is a question for you, do you think those songwriters, producers suck?

To me the answer is no, they are brilliant, they write exactly what 15 year old girls want to hear, the know the market and they exploit it, they are filthy rich, I am sure we would like to be in their shoes. They are probably amazing guitarists/musicians/composers that write their original and personal music that is probably heard by very few as it is not mainstream. For instance the guitarist Jason Hook, he played guitar for Hilary Duff, Mandy Moore, and he is an outstanding guitarist, he his own solo CD where he expresses his musicality. I am sure that that is also the case with many of the people writing, recording and producing for these mainstream artists.

This music is written for a target audience, it is not most of us here at GMC.

When it comes down to it, all music is really commercial, it is just that the targeted audience is different. Lets talk about Allan Holdsworth for example, his music is bizarre, different, his guitar playing is truly innovative and unique, He plays whatever he feels like playing, and really creates and explores different things. Great, awesome but he also has a target audience, that might be Me, you, maybe all of us here at GMC. Because we are looking for things like that.

There is always music that you really dislike, I barely listen to radio because most of it is not of my taste, what can you do, except to shut down the TV and Radio.

My wife sometimes listens to Reggaeton which I can't stand, if you don't know what that is you are truly blessed, but here in Miami you can't get away from it. And even though I hate it I know that behind it there are a bunch of producers, business man, making money and giving "music" for a certain type of audience.
