I totally agree with this statement by Bob Lefsetz…
Music needs to be meaningful and fun, loose yet precise, it’s got to encapsulate all elements of life. To the point where we can’t help but be drawn in, jump up and dance, wide-eyed and elated.
From his post about The Telethon:
I’ve been reading Bob’s posts about the music industry for years. I discovered him on Rhino Records, one of my favorite music labels.
Yep, music should be fun, loose and meaningful; laughing or crying, it has to touch us deep inside, and give us something to relate to.
Eric Clapton, George Harrison, Ray Charles, Neil Young; their music connects with my soul, their lyrics resonate in my heart, their songs move me. And that’s what it’s all about.
