When Musicians Sell Out

Oh hey, it’s a guest post from Gill. But before she begins, I must disagree with her or at the very least pose a question. At what point did Hedley rock? I must have missed that.

If you are watching the Gray Cup this rather cold day you might notice who the halftime performers are. Headly. A band who once rocked, but now has sold out and is performing Yuck Pop.

Why do bands do this? Ms. Gillie’s theory is this. They long to get a wider audience, and sometimes that means changing their style of performance, or even the type of music they perform.

Why can’t they just follow the advice my mom gave me many times to just be myself? It’s all about the dollars. They don’t just perform to make audiences cheer, but the dollar signs dance as well.

Bye for now friends.
