This is really the only point I'm trying to make. And it's more of a "per capita" thing than a straight up comparison like 10 creative bands in 75 and 9 creative creative bands in 2017. The internet democratized a lot more than music, and that's played a role in limiting the percentage of people pursuing more music. Does that make sense?

Pretty much. I mean, I feel bad for artists who want to make a living making music, but the fact that I can be completely blown away by a bedroom artist versus what's on the radio is basically the best thing ever.

seems more likely that in the case of Summer of Love you just have a unique phenomenon similar to CBGB for Punk where things were just right to produce an art movement

because even the 60's were awash in bubblegum pop like the music The Beatles played prior to experimenting

100% agreed. The best artists I've been exposed to over the last 10 years has been 100% via word of mouth on forums, YouTube vids, and the internet in general. I don't even listen to the radio or any mainstream stuff anymore.

That being said, I've heard a literall ton of complete and utter ****e in that same period of time.

When I was in HS maybe 1-2% of the students were rocking on instruments in bands.

These days I'd wager that 20% of kids are composing and recording because it's so easy and cheap to do now.

But as the saying goes: Sometimes less is more.

The downside of it all is that you are your own talent agency that has to sift through mounds of terrible demos in order to find the next big thing (to you).

Rap music was so much better back then. Now we have all these talentless mumble-rappers that people listen to.
not to mention that all of them have a similar appearance with face-tattoos and really bad hair.
