At last somebody prepared to say it how it is.Well done.
There has been controversy about music aslong as there has been musicians,whether it's Mozart's death - was he poisoned by Salieri or did he die of
kidney disease.Elvis the pelvis with his sexual movements and 'black' music or Judas Priest and the 'do it' message.
The music industry's golden goose has always been the 'youth' market,the charts,the tours,merchandising and the whole circus that goes with it.
The whole point is it's the music of the younger generation,if you're parents like the music you love then it looses it's appeal to youth.
In the days of Elvis,The Rolling Stones or in my time AC/DC and Ozzy Osbourne then their guaranteed to piss off the folks.They had that edge,it felt
dangerous,naturally anti parent and teacher.
The whole illuminati/conspiracy angle may be a more recent bandwagon that some bands or personalities have jumped on with the industrys direct or
tacit blessing but the satanism or pacts with the devil are old,old territory.Remember Robert Johnson and the crossroads !!!
Also music is a very direct and visceral medium that often does appear almost magical to those who only listen and follow artists.Speaking as a
guitarist who's played in groups around the local curcuit many times there's a lot of hard work and night after night of practice and rehearsal that
goes into it.
Musicians appear like they may have tapped into something beyond to gain the abilities they have and the direct emotional effect they have on people
through their music.It's no wonder people find it plausible some may have dabbled with dark forces to get where they are.Music has such an immediate
and strong effect on people it does have an unknown,magical quality to it.
The music industry itself has one aim and that is to make money,it always has been the bottom line and it'll use whatever trend or trick it can to
market it's product and increase the profits.Playing on the dark side is the oldest trick in the book.
Like I said I became an ardent music lover in the early 80's when parents and the establishment was shouting about the dangers of rock music and
heavy metal.Two Jehovas came to our door and told my mum that satan was trying to ensare the kids through heavy metal,if your kids were into metal,had
albums n posters their mortal soul was in peril.I had a stack of rock albums on vinyl,walls covered in AC/DC Iron Maiden posters and an electric
Well,i'm now a rather peaceable,responsible 40 year old,I work,contribute and don't sacrifice chickens or attend black masses.Looks like satan
isn't that good at ensaring souls
