Keys And Chords
An Important Three-Book Series Featuring Over 120 Recent and Intimate Interviews with the Greatest Music Legends of Our Time Need Your Support
SARASOTA, FLORIDA -August 7th 2015: Why are we not fighting to preserve our own musical legacy and culture? Music journalist- author-public relations director-talk show host- Ray Shasho has been on a rock and roll pilgrimage to help promote and save the greatest music the world has ever known. Shasho doesn’t simply write about the music and artists that influenced countless generations and millions upon millions of music fans worldwide, that would be way too easy, and its already been done a gazillion times over the years, instead, Shasho brings the actual music legend to the reader. The historical value alone of assembling over 120 music legends over a three year span is an unimaginable feat. Please contribute to the ‘Saving Rock and Roll’ Kickstarter movement and bring these legendary music artists back into the mainstream so they can properly sell their latest music and educate an entire new generation of young artists and listeners.
One day, the plug was pulled on our rock heroes. Hackers began stealing music across the internet. Online music stores popularized cheap digital singles and neglected to promote full-length albums. Radio stations changed formats to accommodate cheesy talk show radio jocks while rappers and electronic dance music menaced the airwaves. Notorious record companies began folding in droves. Record companies and radio stations that were once owned and operated by visionaries were now run by accountants and lawyers and the music world began promoting untalented wannabes. The economy plummeted and radio stations became more concerned about how many consecutive commercials they could run instead of providing quality radio programming and entertainment value. Radio stations became corporate machines leaving no room for innovation. Throughout the 2000s, recording studios and live performances began using an audio processor called Auto-Tune to disguise off-key inaccuracies in vocal tracks. The device allowed virtually anyone without music skills to become a singer and new waves of mainstream radio stars were instantly fabricated. The business of music became stronger and more important than the art of music. Proficient musicians, singers, and songwriters are what made the music so great! Please contribute to the ‘Saving Rock and Roll’ kickstarter movement and help me bring the music legends back into the mainstream.
