Dr. Brixx

This is a bit of a last minute review for Dr. Brixx… Was casually browsing his videos on youtube after hearing his mash up of Selena Gomez and Pierce the Veil, me being me I had to be a little nosey!

I have already downloaded 6 of his tracks onto my phone, while I have been sat browsing all I could think is WOW! I need to write about this guy! People need to know about him and listen!

His mixes are really odd if you look at the titles. we have as seen before Selena and Pierce The Veil, as well as those we have My Chemical Romance vs B.O.B., Mitis vs All Time Low and many more! 

I will add a channel link at the bottom of the review as I do for all the others.

Seriously though spread the word guys! Pure Amazing!

Gene Simmons declares rock music to be ‘finally dead’

Gene Simmons has accused record labels of failing to adequately support rock artists and declared the genre to be ”finally dead”

Nick Simmons (Gene’s son) criticised the music industry, asserting that rock artists don’t receive the same support from record companies as they did in the 60’s and 70’s.

A quote from Gene:

            ”Don’t quit your day job is a good piece of advice. When I was coming up, it was not an insurmountable mountain. Once you had a record company on your side, they would fund you, and that also meant when you toured they would give you tour support. There was an entire industry to help the next Beatles, Stones, Prince, Hendrix, to prop them up and support them every step of the way. There are still record companies, and it does apply to pop, rap and country to a certain extent. But for performers who are also songwriters - the creators - for rock music, for soul, for the blues - it’s finally dead. Rock is finally dead.”

In my personal opinion I think that saying Rock is totally dead is a bit extreme, yes they may not get as much help as pop artists do but that all depends on the label that the rock artist is with or trying to get with. There are a lot of labels out there that are all about rock, they specialise in rock artists. 

There are a lot of labels right now that are looking for a lot of fresh new talent because in fact the rock industry is getting bigger and bigger and even more popular, a lot of people used to be ‘outed’ for liking rock music but now it is taking the world by storm, there are very little lovers of the whole Justin Bieber thing, whatever they think that guy is! He’s shit!

So as for the quote ‘Rock is finally dead’ I totally disagree…

I would love for your opinions. Do you think that rock is finally dead?
