TOPIC: The Brits 2021 LIVE
#208661
The Brits 2021 LIVE 4 Months, 2 Weeks ago  
It's hard for me to comment objectively as I hosted and wrote the show in 1987 and gave it the name The Brits (British Record Industry Trusts Show). I then produced and wrote it in 90, 91 and 92 and quit when control was again taken away from me by the label bosses.

There's a lot that has gone with the music industry since then. I tried to rectify problems by starting The Tip Sheet in the 1990's and was well on the way to taking charge of a chunk of it globally (EMI) when outside events intervened.

I tried, after The Brits, to take over Top of the Pops but was not allowed to do that; instead I was given Eurovision and brought the UK a win in 1997.

This year's Brits started rather well, with a spoof Line of Duty. But Jack Whitehall, who I like, needed a producer to tell him that a funny written script tends not to work in a half empty auditorium, especially when the audience is made up of media correct NHS workers instead of music fans. There are ways of rectifying that but this year's Brits didn't do that.

The Elton/Years duet of It's A Sin worked though. Why? Because it's a great song (even if it does resemble Wild World - at least my version).

And that is, for me, the problem with today's music. Because most executives cannot find, spot or create mass appeal hits or talent, they cater to specialist areas. And most of the music in those areas is not very good. So not many people like it.

And not many people watch music shows. And not many buy music.

Oh they stream it by the billions. It costs almost nothing. Why not?
