Tony Visconti

Tony Visconti really was the natural heir to George Martin. Check out Tony’s thoughts on the state of the music industry — there is no-one as distinguished and so able to offer the ultimate insider’s diagnosis on the malaise of creativity that we know has well and truly flattened the creative landscape over the past 20 years at least — as has happened to all other realms of artistic endeavor. This is not to say that there is not superb talent out there — it’s just that one has to dig much deeper to find it, and shovel away the “fame” pap that is the prevailing driver. Tony knows every gratuitous technological trick in the recording book so he can quickly see through to the talentless underlayer.
