It's all about the music, dude! Sit down, relax and listen to some tunes.

Since when is 95% a distortion of 95%?

>> You're distorting Mike's original statement...... He said 95 percent of live *pop* music is either lip-sync'ed or played back....... I'm not sure if it's actually that high, but I'm certain it is high nonetheless.>>

That's nice. Since when has any of the examples I used to rebut his assertion fallen out of the general category of pop?

What exactly is "high?" some might see 1% as high.

>> Personally, if I thought he exaggerated the number, which might be the case, I'd maybe question the number....... But IMO, he's nailed the problem with most popular music today, exaggerated or not.>>

"The problem?" really this is "he" problem?

Either you think he exaggerated the number or you don't think he exaggerated the number. Which is it. I think he pulled it out of his ass and it is way off.

>>From me personally, what I find disappointing is the militant attitude from those either defending or denying the practice of faking performance.......>>

And who here is actually doing that? Smells like a burning straw mane to me.

>> And it's about time the few real music critics remaining developed a backbone and started going on the offensive........ As far as I'm concerned, the inmates have been running the asylum. For too long.>>

As far as I am concerned it's funny when one inmate calls another inmate crazy in any asylum.
