Will soul ever return to the music?
I was there when Chuck Berry sang Johnny B. Goode in the late 50s. I was there when The Shirelles sang Soldier Boy on the same stage as Chuck Berry. They sang their heart and souls out to entertain the audience. Their brows sweat, but it was a sweet, soulful sweat they all loved, because they were making music for history. Today, it’s all electric drums and electronic gizmos that have taken the place of the soulful artists on stage and in the recording studio. Question: will this great time in music ever be back again or will generations to come have to only listen to CDs and view old-time videos of a time never more? I was there when it all happened the first time and it was fabulous.
