So many bands and musicians just arent as good as they were when they first started and i think it has a lot to do with how well known they are or really, just how much money they make. When musician starts making serious money it has a direct effect on their creativity; its like they think they’re hot shit cause people know who they are, so theyll just put out anything thinking how amazing everything they do is. In order for someone to be sucessful forever you gotta be down to earth, modest, and give back to the places where you started, give other people a chance and take your time with the music, after a while i feel like most bands are just rushing to get more out there just to get more back instead of just for the sake of creating. Once someones known the size of your head directly correlates to your decline. Thats why i dont understand when local bands say no to playing a certain show because theres no money involved, when theyre not even well known outside of the island. Same goes for famous groups, when they suddenly only play big venues now, not local venues…wtf? whenever theres a band like that, local or well known, they almost always break up shortly after because, what else is there to do? The same goes for artists too.
