Here we go again! Vocal Fascism . I blame X-factor for this modern obsession with pitch perfection.
I blame X Factor for many things but too high a bar for musical talent would be a new one. I don't suppose you're suggesting that but tuning hasn't really been a big issue for them on the past either.
It has nothing to do with X-Factor: go to any Paul Carrack, Paul Rodgers, Frankie Miller, Michael McDonald/Bolton gig, these guys have been pitch-perfect for 30+ years.
Yes but Dylan,Jagger,McCartney,Lydon, Bob Marley and Lou Reed,are all much much bigger and they ain't. My point is not that X-Factor is producing pitch perfect gods but that the Judges go on about pitch all the time. Now I hear kids at concert going "oooh that's a bit pitchy - a bit of training needed there" and it's bollocks, this is not classical music this music has it's roots in some genres where they didn't even know how to tune a guitar.
