    Rappers & hip-hoppers enhance their vulgar lyrics with loads of hi-tech electronic gimmickry.

    And wiggers buy it.

    You do not know how many shows, how many sessions, how many studios and venues I’ve mixed in where I could have used a console that could do all that.

    Damn it that was so freaking good.

    I would say that I did not have a knob that could fix an out of tune guitar, or an off key singer. This was my life on display.

    Love it, lived it over and over.

    FYI – all the reverb, delay, doubling, vocoding, autotune, or the most powerful DAW with all the plugin known to man could not bend that original into that final product.

    We never had to use any of that tricked out shit because we always played in places where everybody was shitfaced drunk and couldn’t detect the mistakes.

    To borrow from Frank Zappa,

    “A couple of quarts of beer could fix it so the intonation did not offend your ear.”

    @Unruly Refugee

    Been there, done that. Sometimes I was so drunk I could only hope the crowd was too. :)

    @Houston, I know exactly what you mean. We’ll have to swap stories some time.

    We cut some demo records back in the 70s at Valentine Recording Studios where Frank Zappa used to record. Damn nice studio, but we never could get anybody to listen to the demos.

    all great humor has some truth to it.

    take away all the half naked writhing “dancing” going on behind todays singers and they all be lost for any expression of talent.

    i would love to see a modern perfomrance by lady gagme if she had to hold a microphone with a cord on it.

    ha ha ha ha !!!

    The unedited version sounds like a lot of the crap on the radio today. I call it Slim Whitman singing. All the current group of “stars” think singing is showing how many octaves they can run up and down in a song. Funny, it all sounds like yodeling to me.
