Sure, as a dyed-in-the-wool music fan, i enjoy the occasional dose of musical nostalgia as much as the next wistful person. But if still involved in being in music as a business and making music, being shackled to Yesterday and producing and producing, there’s always that inner voice asking, But producing for what? Where’s this tonnage of Whats leading? Down the long and winding road with all the other Nowhere Men?
Yes, the Beatles are timeless and there were some classic records made. But those Swinging Sixties and Woodstock and Monterey have often glamourised the pretty mediocre.
