OK, I KNOW I'm an old man-not Harry Meshel old-but well past the half-way mark,but-I JUST dont get some of the dreck on YouTube.
Maybe you have the same frustration-you're looking for a song by a certain artiste but instead video after video comes up of someone doing,excuse me-"COVERING" that song from their bedrooom.
Now-I'm not talking about someone like Townes Van Zandt doing HIS version of The Stones' Dead Flowers,
I'm talking about some guy in his Coitsville bedroom doing a song and somehow getting a rush having it on the internet.
In the past talented musicians 'paid their dues' - now you just need pay your internet connection.
