Is Music Doomed..?

Hi Michael,

Firstly, thanks for sharing your wisdom here - so much of what you say resonates with me on a personal level.

In particular, what you discuss on your website about the current state of popular music - even music generally - has been food for thought.
I'm a child of the '90's, bands like Soundgarden, the Chili Peppers and Hole were part of my musical education. I look back on those years as - perhaps like yourself - the last era when music truly meant something, both to the people that made it and the people who bought it.
But feeling this way makes me feel a bit like the proverbial old man shaking his fist at the future because he knows his best days are behind him...

What i'd like to ask you - with the utmost respect for your past triumphs - is how relevant do you feel in the current musical climate?

Can you lean your weight of experience on modern recording/musical practice to change it for the better?

How can we best operate outside the confines of the current status quo?

Thanks again for your input here,
