You have to see the bigger picture and not only the bar ladies in front of you. The ladies can work online and you save on Lady drinks and bar fines. On top of it you can often see ratings of other customers there. Bars are a thing of the past. Mostly old people go there who can't use the internet. And at some bars the ladies are dressed as nurses already that these old guys feel safer. And booze? There are so many other places for it. Even in front of a convenience store you often can sit and meet friends. Why wait for a happy hour where you still pay far too much and feel unhappy because of this? 

 

What App ..

Of America can bail out the lobbyists, Thailand can bail out the bars.  Cmon, Thai gov, its time to step up to the plate.

Musicians skills are only gained after years of hard work and do not really apply to any other job......Its a damm sad situation....

 

But things have been getting worse for musicians for decades already........Napster was the start of musicians wows.....Record sales started falling each year.....Then digital downloads stole most of musicians recording income....They only get fractions of a cent for digital downloads....

David Crosby and others have been very vocal about the music theft that is going on in the music industry...

 

Now if musicians cant play live they have almost zero income.....

 

 

 

hey David i bought your CD, your Album and your F&&&&* cassette of CSN.  now you want me to pay for a streamed version?

Pattaya can change and look for tourists with other interests than sex and booze. Perhaps now is the best time for this. 

They have been doing that for the past 6 years..

The times are a changing Vegas change their image to a family entertainment place TIT

Correct Thailand will change, Pattaya being the dump that it is, and knowing the lack of any real investment rebranding it for bus loads of Chinese will not be difficult. Possibly by closing beach road, converting third road, one way south, maintaining a clean enviromemt around the beach. Take a walk down to the beach and observe how quickly it has been transformed into a place worth going.  I believe a lot of the boats in the harbor including the entertainment venues will disappear,  what remains, enforcing the plan to use the pier will be easy. This will attract a lot of high worth travelers, families, Thai people from Bangkok and surrounding provinces. This will take a little time, but it's on the cards.

The main problem that Pattaya in particular has, is that the City has the reputation of being the biggest Cat House in the World.

Impossible to rebrand a reputation like that.

This fact that younger generations lack an appreciation for live music is very disturbing to me.  I know 2 guys here from USA, one mid-40's and another early 30's who both "love" and "listen" to EDM, they had to tell me it stands for Electronic Dance Music.  Elwood Blues said it best:  ".... leaving the next generation with nothing but recycled, digitally-sampled techno-grooves, quasi-synth rhythms, pseudo-songs of violence-laden gangsta-rap, acid pop, and simpering, saccharine, soulless slush."

Going totally OT - But it really irritates me when I hear this recycled comment - there has always been bad music from all generations - people said the same about Punk.

Without argument, there are huge heaps of disposable electronic music, but there are stacks of music from the past 20 years that could be classified in the statement that have become classics for the new generation. Music is a constantly evolving medium, sometimes “we” get stuck in our ways, but it doesn’t mean its downfall of music as we know it.
