The Richter Scales: Men Who Blog

"VH1 and MTV, who unwittingly and without any mal intent -- you know, they didn't mean to do anything bad -- have turned [the music industry] from being a musical experience to being a theatrical experience. Again, what you look like, not what you can do.

"That's not a good thing, because it means that anybody that looks good in a well-shot video is suddenly at the top, whereas hugely talented people, who are great musicians, can barely get arrested. I mean, they can barely get any notice at all. And that's not a good thing... now you've got all these people who look great and can't write, sing, or play."
