What I've been saying all along

At last someone decided to put into print what I've been thinking and discovering for the past 10 years or so. Thank you, Jeff Leeds; I would like to shake your hand.
"Accounting for the shallow talent pool, some industry executives cite the effects of MTV, which lets fans see performers without ever leaving their couch. Others blame a recording industry more focused on disposable hits than long-term career development, or a universe of digital singles that can keep fans from establishing deep connections with an artist over a long career. Whatever the case, John Scher, the New York music promoter and entrepreneur, says that unless the industry's dynamics change, many of the nation's big summer music venues 'will be plowed over and be made into housing projects.'"
