    I think it has. I know that rock 'n roll is not what it used to be and country music today sounds a lot like rock which I don't mind. Everything else I believe is pretty much to commercial, it pretty much all sounds the same and I think the music people probably think that if they can make a buck they will as long as they getting is good.

    I'll agree with you, the music scene has become increasingly competitive over the past 100, maybe even 200 years.
    And with that increased competition comes an greater need for publicity, because visibility is that much harder to achieve.
    And publicity- that's where the business aspect comes in, because its purely driven by money.

    No, music hasn't changed-what has changed is that the specific individuals form  a similar group of human inhabitants own and completely monopolize the American Media. . . .and they have a goal, which doesn't include anything nice for America, or the American people.

    Good music, quality musicians, and integrity are out there-but that is not what is for sale here in America.

    Once music be a part of the mainstream of entertainment, it was associated potentially with big bucks.  This came about with the ability to make and sell recordings of talented individuals.  At that point, greed and avarice became direct competitors with artistry. That sounds bad but suffice to say that the music industry might not be where it is today without the advent of the "profit/motive" system in terms of mass marketing artists and entertainers.  There are those in the business end of music who control the power and the means to stardom and mass marketing. With this, they basically can make the artist bow down and yield to their methods and their management.  Few artists have bucked the system and survived in the industry although many do for their own particular reasons and self-motivations.  I am not saying that is a bad choice. As in any venture, we eventually come to that fork in the road where our ambitions and our beliefs and values take separate roads...which one we follow is usually driven by our own greed and avarice.
