    Actually, the greatest band to ever come out of America did so in the 1980s.

    It's important to note that the title, at least, of this thread refers to the music and photography industries.

    I don't think that the quality of music and musicians has any more than a tangential relationship to the quality of the music industry.

    7. The marketing of the music is making it harder for the artist to earn money

    I’m still listening to and preferring music from the 80’s and still using cameras from the 80’s and 90’s.

    Would you care to list the analogies to photography to these bullets?
    Personally, I blame the renaissance...

    film = real instruments
    digital = keyboards

    You can create images (sounds) with digital photography (keyboards) but it will never be real music (film photography).

    I think you're living too much in the mainstream EricO

    I hope you're limiting that to electronic keyboard instruments and excluding Hammond organs!

    Possibly a better analogy would be the storage and viewing/listening methods of film and digital when applied to music.

    I think a JPG file is similar to an MP3 file. i.e. Compressed to make it fit in a smaller file space and susequently loses some of its definition/quality.

    Yes of course. I did not remember that keyboard is a real instrument as well.
