I don't agree with your statement a bit, but this is probably because you're limiting your views to mainstream music only. Although I do like alot
of the music from the 70s, but I feel art, both visual and audible, is stronger now than ever before. Ignore mtv or anything you see on cable tv, or
the radio, delve deeper into the world-wide-web and start discovering music that most people are unawares of; and only then will you truly begin to
realize how music is not dead. No art is. Ever heard of Emancipator, God Is an Astronaut, Kondor, Blazor, Sigur Ros, Cunninlynguist, Deas Veil,
Soulchef, Blue Sky Black Death, Sleepmakeswaves, If These Trees could Talk, and so so many more. I listen to music everyday, none of which is
mainstream, but it's my light in some moments of darkness, and part of the inspiration that keeps me working on art. Sorry for the mini-rant, I just
feel very strong about this subject.
