MCG: Why Is It So Important To Change The World
What’s the Point Of Ordering a New World Without a Large Helping of Old World Values
The Music City Ghost [File #92] 2015: Did you ever go out to hear some music and run across a really great singer but the band behind them was terrible? Either they play so loud they drown out the singer or they don’t even come close to playing the arrangement like it is supposed to be. Well the other night I went to go hear a singer and he was terrible. The band backing him up was fantastic. They played in tune, they played at the right volume while he was singing and then louder when it was their time to shine and they played the song so it sounded like the original record. The star out in front of the band was the worse one on the stage. The band was so superior to the singer that they could have easily played the whole night without him and it would have been more enjoyable. It is getting harder and harder to hear the perfect combination of a really great singer and a really great back up band all at the same time. I am not certain why this is. I do know one thing and that is the “Old Guard” singers hired musicians that played the way the singer wanted them to play or they were replaced. Can you only imagine how long a band member would have lasted that was trying to drown out Johnny Cash? Or a band member that didn’t know the right chords to the songs backing up Patsy Cline. Why has it changed so dramatically?
