My opinion is that when someone says "i sold my soul to the devil to become famous" they really mean that they gave up on everything they believed
and they will do everything that would be asked from them in order to become what they dreamt ,even if they don't like it or agree with it.They give
up their principals,their personal lives,they are forced to do things they hate.
But as a musican myself i can tell you a little about the business.
There are indeed some satanic societies at the top of the music industry worshipping "Lu".
I have refused the call and was dumped to local bizz.
All of the dirty cr@p that is going on the last hundred years is quite influenced by secret societies like the "hermetic order of the golden dawn",
the " Ordo Templi Orientis" and many more.
But what is more important is the influence of Aleister Crowles works on the post-ww2-world!
You can find his teachings in nearly every occult, new age or esoteric knowlege. But that isn´t all.
His influence is everywhere and you even don´t know it!
I will give some examples:
The image of the typical grey alien was first implied by crowley!
(He meditated on the gizeh pyramid and got medial contact to a being. He painted a picture of it and that is what you could call a prototzpe of the
typical grey we see today in nearly every scifi-alien movie.)
The New age and hippie movement also seems to be implied by his teachings. They correlate so deeply that it is a wonder that no normal person noticed
Out of this movement came alot of musicans mentioned in this thread. And many of them worshipped crowley and his teachings (They seemed to be in the
know about the movement) . You can find the evidence everywhere in their artwork.
The Doors album "13"(!) on the back showes the band sitting around a table with a japanese garden on it. There is a stone head in the middle of the
garden that is clearly an image of the older crowley.
Osborne has written an ode to crowley, called "Mr. Crowley".
A verse in one of David Bowies songs is, " ...i´m closer to the golden dawn, imersed in crowleys uniform of imagery..."
The beatles "the sgt. peppers album" has a lot of people on the cover. The second head from left in the upper line seem to be again crowley!
There is so much i cannot give all examples..
Then there are some occult signs and rituals performed by some artists. These rituals are directly implied by his teachings.
Some rituals are:
Initation to the inner circle - for example rhiannas "umbrella" or Kerli "walking on air"
The butterfly ritual - the birth of a new celebrity
The venus ritual, performing the transformation from lucifer to satan and back - Aguileras "fighter" or Lady Gagas "bad romance"
The Ophiuchus ritual - The artist carries a snake, preferably an albino, and will be sacrificed the next three month - re: Aliah, tupac, britney...
i don´t want to say that the artists are directly involved, but the director of the videos are surely.
Some, like aguilera and britney do know as they use many of the signs directly.
