That's not true ...... we only remember the 60s/70s/80s/90s music that was great but we forget the 1000s and 1000s of shitty ones.
Granted that without the tools available today , the ones who made it back then were more carefully chosen by the labels. Like J.Bieber wouldn't be big in the 60s because Youtube didnt exist .... and even if he did manage to be big someday in the 60s , he would be like 28 yo when success came knocking. Over night sensations didnt exist but now its kinda the norm to attract the best writers/composers around.
This is the big difference between "now and then" ..... pretty sure in 2050 , people will say that 2010 music was teh shit !!
