Pop music is music for lonely people made by other lonely people.
We need more “shows” with no backdrop. No patter. (that’s dancing for you young folk”, none of the “trappings” of today’s music extravaganzas, which OFTEN resemble Broadway as opposed to the Fillmore. Once upon a time music was something you listened to. Not it has become something you see. And we are worse off for it. Attribute it to high ticket prices. We went to shows when there were no tapes, no hard drives, because live shows were about experimentation, with every performance just a little bit different, with surprises and imperfections just like life.
