Not The Best Musicians !

Postby underated » Sat Aug 17, 2013 11:35 pm

That's a strange one.
A new group get's together & they are not very good musicians, young & learning their craft.
The music they play & record sounds basic & rough.

It's soulful though & has a lot of feeling , they don't have the best instruments & the singer has not found his voice yet.

Fast forward years later, the musicians are very talented & skillful & have the best gear, the singer sounds good.
The most important thing " The Music ".... sounds cold & boring, very uninspired.

Those things seem to happen to so many groups,
I wonder why ?

the best art comes from suffering, struggling and living day to day. once you lose that everything becomes boring and easy, and their continuing music reflects that reality just as their vital music from the old days reflected their reality then.

Yes that sounds about right,
i guess another few things might come into play as well, such as artists loosing the driving faith that helped them along & not to forget some folks just lose track of direction & focus.

@ Roman
I will never get back those seconds either,
as regards to watching your videos

I have still not recovered from that bottle incident
I remember you were trying to take the limelight from toots
That was someone that threw that though, you did it to yourself :)

It's not even my video ) As I said earlier it's a live music video from 1991. It was shot in a place called Knoxville in the US (I've never been to the United States Of America so I don't know where it is) on Nov 23, 1991. Okay, I lied whan I said I wasn't born back then - I was, but in those days I was only 11 years old. I can even tell you where I was living back then: Havanna, Cuba

This is (was) la panaderia where I used to buy bread back back in 1991:
