Local Opinion Editorials


Nobody’s perfect. Not even those who think they are!

Where have all the Singers gone?
I watch a few talent shows, like my favorite “America’s Got Talent” and I notice in many cases, the louder a singer sings or screams, the more the crowd yells their approval.

I asked a friend of mine, Bob, who had played in one of the most popular local bands for years and he agreed that extremely loud music and singing, in many cases, is just a method to cover up for the lack of talent.

What ever happened to Bing, Perry, Sinatra, Dean and the other truly great singers? They’re probably all rolling over in their graves with their hands over their ears. I’ll bet they’d all agree with this Schindlerism, “If you know how to sing…you don’t have to scream.”
