Why Dave Grohl Rocks–besides the obvious…

I have never been a fan of any of the “become a star” talent shows that so many people adore in our country and certain parts of Europe.

In fact, as a visual artist who has also spent a great deal of time on stage and back stage as a performing artist as well as a production manager, I find the whole performing arts geared “reality show” genre an absolute anathema to the true artistic creative process.

The producers behind the scenes prey upon the gullible, the desperate and the unenlightened in our society by first creating - and then force feeding - this poisoned Kool-Aid that they disguise as entertainment on the masses. Unfortunately, for those some people that love it – unwittingly blind to the realities of what it means and what it takes to be true and genuine to your art - it works.

I could spend a great deal of time here discussing why these shows are so damaging on so many levels, but I won’t. Why should I when musician Dave Grohl has already done so so succinctly?


Thank you Dave. You Rock. Seriously.
