>Musicians hanging out with other musicians
>they don't even jam together
>they don't even have their instruments with them
Is Facebook and Youtube really more important to them?
To much talent for one pic and a killer synth to boot.

what a boring green room.
i met a promoter for big festivals in europe while touring with kind of a big band. the promoter said bands used to come around with crazy stories about what they did in each town they passed through.
she then told me that for the past 5 years and onward, bands that come through only say one thing-- "hey, uhh, whats the wifi password?"

Grohl's records are still compressed and limited and maximized to death like any other pop record. Grohl really isn't getting much difference at all swapping out digital for extremely expensive analogue equipment, other than the ridiculous idea that he is more "real".
Maybe if he used a DAW once in a while he could find a new sound rather than rehashing riffs from the 70's and acting like he's better than everyone.

>mfw i use audacity to record everything
>mfw i've spent hours with my nose to the grindstone learning about production with nothing but info graphics as my guide
>mfw i pump out "professional" sounding tracks using the most bare minimum gear
>mfw i can also play it all live
it takes just as much time and effort to be an electronic musician. the only difference is you're playing with different toys.
