I suspect the answer to my question is no.

We where truly blessed with talent back in those days. Too many to mention.










At age 18 they weren't bad either.

Yeah they Probably do.
Unfortunately that’s not what it takes today.

Bob Dillon is one of the best song write ever.
Could you imagine him winning American idol?

And the parents of teen agers who listened to the Bee Gees pulled their hair out by the roots screaming''What the hell are the kids listening to these days. Why can't they write good stuff any more like we used to listen to''

What makes music so divisive?

We’re the BeeGees incredibly talented? Yeah. Of course, and maybe the twins were kind of psychic, which is pretty neat in an ATS way. They were also record label pawns like most other hugely popular musicians.

One of the most popular artists in the world right now wrote an album at 17 and produced it with her brother. Other 17 year olds are really into it.

Why be musically bigoted when music is so subjective and harmless? Like what you like, and others can enjoy their own noise.

Music back then was extremely political as well.

When rock and roll hit the scene it was seen as black music and a communist ploy.

Music is music all of it should he appreciated for its freedom of expression.

I blame all the drugs the kids were taking for their lack of John Wayne masculinity back during the Bee Gee period.

Politics today require our 12 year genius musicians to play slightly harder music:

Violence in all forms of video games and media allows people to experience it without actually doing it. Same thing with pornography. It's much better for someone to masturbate to pornography than go out an rape someone. All these expressions people experience prevent them from actually doing it for real.

And this is how I know this is true. Because think about it. If watching sex and violence in mass media actually turned you into a murderer and rapist there not be anyone left alive! You would see dead bodies in the streets everyday. There would be 100 million rapes per year.

I remember that first bit by Grace. How wonderful. She managed her innocence throughout the contest and won the whole thing.

There was a very interesting thing though that I noticed, that is the key to a lot of the music industry for the last 50 years or so. Grace came on stage so innocently and shyly . She offered us music from her own standards of art and was successful.

Howie gave her the buzzer and the crowd was over joyed at her freshness in creativness. Then I noticed the ugly head of the musical taming that goes on in the industry. Cowell said,"" I think you could be the next Taylor Swift'' and being the new manager of this girl by rights of it being his show, channeled her into a money making machine but utilizing her abilities.

Grace became a sensation on Y tube and Simon could only see her as a label pawn.

Mostly, yes. Not teaching your children about critical thinking is the danger there.

Wrong.


Born in England, but grew up in Queensland, Australia.

Still not American.

They would have had to go to Massachusetts first, so they could go back there.
