Tony Bennett was born in 1926 and has been a part of the music industry for over 50 years. During his time, he has sold more than 50 million records. In an interview with BBC Radio 4, Bennett gave his opinion on the music industry and where he thinks it's headed.
Bennett stated, "The songs that are written today, most of them are terrible. It's a very bad period, musically, throughout the world for popular music."
In Bennett's opinion, music has become too much about the industry and has lost its focus. The Huffington Post quotes him as saying, "The corporations took it over and they want to make so much money and they don't care whether the public likes it or not. They think the public is ignorant, so their attitude is, 'Don't give them anything intelligent, because it won't sell.'"
