Music That I Hate

25 May

You are always treading dangerous ground where you set out to make your living being a “guy with a guitar.” It increases your likelihood of sucking by at least 100%. What made me hate guys with guitars you ask?

The answer is simple: James Taylor made me. It’s difficult to describe how completely bland and lame his voice is. Its like all the grownups wanted their own “raffi” or a singer straight out of sesame street and they anointed James Taylor.

To be honest its not his fault he makes crappy music. He is actually a pretty interesting guy. He was boys with Mick Jagger, “You’re So Vain” was written about him.

The James Taylor moment that sums it up for me is when he tries to get all bluesy on a live CD and tries to sing like either a rock star or a black soul singer, instead he sounded like James Taylor. Not sure what song that is but I remember it sucked.
