Karen Carpenter is 66 this year. Yes, she was removed the stage at 33, and was a member of the DCP (dead celebrity program).
A.N. is another destructive behaviour I don’t hear much in the media these days. Is it still a problem among young females?
Great insights by POM.
The music business is too influential to be left to chance talent taking it places where our leaders do not want us to go. Music is a gateway to the brain and soul. Churches us it to keep the congregations in line, and nation-states have songs that bring people instantly to their feet, hats off. A subversive song might incite people to doubt the necessity of a war or reality of a fake event. So music is under control of Intelligence. This explains in part the Laurel Canyon scene of the 60s and 70s, where so many meriocre musicians, children of military and intelligence families, invaded, formed groups that achieved instant unearned fame. They then died off, many reappearing in news and opinion culture.
