I’ve been saying this for years and now someone whose voice can also make a difference is concurring! Love!
Tom Jones has spoken out against American I-Dull Judge Simon Cowell in an interview with The Daily Mirror. The icon has said ” I have problems when people who have never got up on a stage to sing judge those who do. Who are they to say? Simon Cowell is a record man, not a singer. How can someone give advice if he or she is not qualified? It’s like critics who criticise actors, never having been on a stage. Or having a teacher not experienced in teaching. There are loads of judges with experience in the record industry, but can’t sing. They may work for a record company, but to have stood where that person is standing is a unique thing. That’s the difference. It frustrates me when people comment on others singing when they haven’t actually been there themselves. You’ve got the shows with record executives, people who are listening for commercial reasons and whether someone will sell.”
Pass it on!
