Should write there own songs? JLS and One Direction are just crap XFactor made rubbish that would not know what a real song was if it hit them not like the Rolling Stones.
This disgusion goes way back to the birth of Rock n Roll in 1950's, when the record labels dictated the way artists worked and what their out put should be. I'm sure you are not old enough to remember the likes of The Monkees in the 60's and the Osmands in the 70's are you?
The record companies have always acted to extract pocket money from kids as this is one of the biggest markets.
There has been and always will be a massive culture of 'real' music around the world. It's up to us all to find our little bit of it and enjoy!! As for sighting the Rolling Stones as some kind of roll model to kids.... hhhmmmm, I'd rather eat my own hair than listen to most of their output in the last 40 years!
As for me, I'm just as likely to be listening to Woody Guthrie, Subhumans, Alison Krauss or Alien Sex Fiend.... I even like The Spice Girls and have been known to sing along to Take That! A blinkered atitude to music is far more harmful to the soul that listening to JLS.... isn't it?
I think we should embrace the music we love.... the kids that are listening to One Direction today may be the ones that form bands later in life. Anyway, give them a break they're kids!
Hell no! I don't actually ride a bicycle.
