Singers still sing today. There has never been a period of time when they stopped. As long as you keep listening to Clear Channel stations and reading People magazine you will be deprived of what talent is really out there.


As for the We Are The World song, I always felt it was a sappy, bloated, trainwreck. I always preferred the Band Aid Christmas song. In my later years I have grown tired of this song also. Even so it is still better.

With a little help from AUTO-TUNE and a great get up and gimmick, they're all "superstars". There are very, very few real musicians and singers out there anymore. Sure, you can come across them in jazz or blues clubs or even rock clubs but those people very rarely make it big.

Now that's as close to Brian as anyone will EVER get. Brian even thinks so and had to test him singing with him.
