“Back then there was one Frank Sinatra. One Tony Bennet. One James Brown. One Aretha Franklin. One Temptations. One Gladys Knight. One Bobby Womack. One Al Green. And if you sounded like someone, God bless you, but you didn’t get recorded, because radio wouldn’t play you”
In Part 2 of my interview with George Daniels, he talks about how our generation has been cheated by radio, marketing and industry copycats. The dumbing down of music, if you will. He drops quite a few gems here including how technology has changed everything – including the retail game. He also notes why he decided to name his store “George’s Music Room” as opposed to “George’s Record Shop”.
Aspiring artists, I urge you to watch this.
