Recently Elton John stated that the Internets should be SHUT DOWN due to it's ill effects on music. I'm really confused at his opinions on how the Internet is having a negative effect on the creation of modern music. One of his claims is that it doesn't allow people to communicate ..... howabout services such as Email, IM, Skype, YouStream, and all the millions of other communications sites/apps out on the internet.
Another point I didn't understand is if the internet is causing the music being produced to decrease in quality, why didn't his last album do too well? Apparently, he doesn't use the internet to help him produce music, so as a rule we would think he would be producing the best music out there. If that were the case, when asked what his secrets to success were, he could just say "Oh, it's because I never use the Internet to communicate, I find it makes my music much better" and inspire other artists. Eventually, I'd stop blogging, join a rock band, hit the road and make it big. I guess I'd better finish this entry and prepare my hair for the sweet hair band I'm gonna create.
