I still buy new music but overall I would listen to more from the past than current releases. Certainly there are albums I own I've have for 25 years + and they weren't necessarily new releases at...

You seem to be dealing in absolutes though: popular vs. unpopular, I'm thinking in terms of things being far less popular than they might otherwise have been. Also a 'ban' is usually an official...

Untrue? No. US and UK society was far more overtly racist in the fifties than sixties than it is today. We all know this. So despite this, somehow, miraculously, the music biz was unaffected by...

The US, no contest. Not just the 80's and 90's but every decade since the beginning - and by a wide margin. It's never been close at all. In every major genre, the US eclipses the UK. The...
