Maybe not, but for the mainstream music industry, it is. The real problem, from what I know, is the manipulation with contracts. A good example is the first band I listened to that spawned my music taste, My Chemical Romance. I heard Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge and loved it, and I've been their fan all the way through. But they made a mistake, because they needed money and wanted to continue, but their ideas were few and far between. Only one or two labels would accept them, but in the contract, the producer got control over their music. They ended up writing shitty music that was more mainstream and far from what they wanted, and the producer destroyed the bands name for good. That's where the problem is: Selling out.

Too many producers manipulate the artists into doing what they want for money, and they lose their way. Some producers are very nice people who respect the artist and know that the band writes music that the fans like, but they'll just correct slight imperfections. A lot of these producers are in the rock and metal industry, more so in metal than anything. The producers that focus on mainstream entertainment bands from TV shows like to manipulate their artists into doing their bidding for money. I mean, if you win X Factor, you get forced into a contract that means you release music after the 2nd place if they were good, and you have to make an album how they want. It's all corrupted. Olly Murs got lucky, because he was 2nd, stuck to his guns and makes music that he wants to and it's very good. I like his music a lot and he seems a generally benevolent person.

Well, tough. You've got to accept that his knowledge and words speak truth, regardless of if you don't feel it accurate. Those shows ARE entertainment, but the fact is that many people get reeled into it, thinking it is how to get a real career in music. It ruins the dreams of those kids, because they confine them to contracts and don't give them the musical freedom that they want. Kids should find friends to make music with for a laugh, record some stuff, send it to recording artists and get record deals. That way, they experience how music was decades ago, but all of that is kept in the dark because they think the only way to get into "mainstream" music is entertainment shows. If they wanted to perform rock, blues, jazz, whatever, they would look past those entertainment shows and go for recording artists and whatever suits the genre of music.

With respect.

What it seems to me is that this would be more of an issue with record labels. I know they reap the profits from many artists' hard work and limit artistic freedom a fuck ton. Not that i have an interest in a music career, but this wouldnt seem like the only way in to me. I cant say i know more than him cause i most certainly dont but i would argue that its not the goal of these shows to make it seem like they are the only way to a successful career, just an unfortunate bi product. Still my point remains that i dont think it is as dire a situation as he would make it out to be.
