In the 80s big business and stuff meant that a lot of great musicians had to do stuff to get by.|
JS had to do metal/pop to survive
Santana had to cut the gtr solos and do tight rock songs (what a relief to the band Milagro sounds!)
CSN had to sound like 80s Genesis
Poor old John Sebastian and Buffy Sainte-Marie had to duck out and wait the decade out.
Richie Havens had to pretned to be an electro soul singer
and so on
taken all in all I think what JS had to do to survive the 80s wasn't too bad
Blame Reagan and Thatcher, I say.
When did you last hear the term "Yuppie"?
