    Back then people had to be professionals in music. Today anyone can get into music and do whatever and however they want. 40+ years ago people needed real talents to get into the music industry but sadly it's not like that anymore.

    Because there were real musicians back then. They wrote their own songs. They played real instruments. And they had to work much harder to market themselves.

    It's not hard to beat disco, punk, hip/hop, rap, grunge, techno, or whatever other kind of music came out since then.
