People that like dead musicians after they die because of bandwagon, and people that post about religion on facebook.

1. https://www.google.com/trends/explore#q=prince

Nobody talked about Prince until he passed away. How do I know this? I bought a Prince album from Walmart a few months ago, gave it a listen, liked it, went to talk about it, nobody cares about Prince, 2 months later, he passes away, now everyone likes Prince again.

2.

You really think because you post your "prayers" on facebook that means you have a personal and powerful connection with god and that is why you didnt die in your sleep last night? Facebook prayers do not amount to anything. Believing in god isnt some spiritual quest you can accomplish by just telling people on facebook you pray to god. You dont even know anything about god, the bible isnt enough information to make an informed opinion on god. Learning about god takes a lifetime of dedicated research and meditation. It isnt something to brag about. You are supposed to teach about it.

Do people share my opinions or am I just out numbered by the "righteous"?

yeah nobody cared about Prince he's only one of the most iconic musicians in history

Thats exactly what people tell me. Oh no JRC, youre wrong, hes the most famous musician ever. He played at the superbowl! No, you dont get it. He was very famous at one point, batman era, then everyone stopped caring, then he died and now everyone likes him again. Remember that one hispanic chick that sang with frank sinatra? Nobody talked about her at all until she died then everyone hopped on the bandwagon. It happens with everyone. NOBODY talked about David Bowie, until he died. Then all the hipsters started talking about how cool he was.

People hopping on bandwagons is a normal thing but it might just be that they've decided to give a popular but now less prominent artist a chance that they previously never got round to, and found meaning in their lateness? Sure the press will give Bowie's new album a 9/10 across the board for his holy death, but that's the press - a lot of folks likely just enjoy something that has become more significant to them through death.

All I'll say about online activism and religious childishness is that an article about baby raping is now usually reduced to

This is the answer I wanted. This is perfectly acceptable. But why do people insist they liked Prince the whole time? Because it makes them cool? I did the same thing, I never listened to him before and decided to give him a chance and I liked it. I didnt wait till he freaking died and it was popular and cool to like him. But i think this is a flaw created by social media and it needs to stop.

Why do I care? Because if I die, and one day someone comes across my soundcloud and youtube channel and I suddenly become this crazy popular autistic musician that everyone feels bad for now that I am dead, I am gonna haunt you guys. It has happened before. A good majority of famous classical musicians didnt get famous until after they died. I bet it goes the same for lots of jazz musicians that didnt get popular because their music didnt fit in during the current era.

Honestly, I think you're over-generalising about people claiming to have "liked them the whole time".

i too am worried about posers in the scene

I'm not worried about posers. I just want people to think about things more. I want people to get the bigger picture. I hate seeing how stupid the people on my facebook are. I hate thinking the people onmy facebook are stupid. I try to just close my eyes but i cannot hide from this. I have to speak out and try to change the world myself. And that starts by pointing out trends I disagree with. People cant handle giant steps.

edit:

no i am not. Have you not been on FB lately? is your feed not filled with please give us back prince and take justin beiber? Shit like that... all day every day.

Most if not all famous musicians start making shit music in their later careers so it makes sense that they don't get as much hype as they used to

Name one "iconic" musician that still makes good music.

I never even heard of her until she died. Then she instantly became everyone's favorite singer and talked about how amazing she was. People tell me they liked her before she died, but then why didnt I hear of her? If you liked her why didnt you talk about her? If you liked her you woulda talked about her and I would have heard you talk about her and I would have heard of her. It is as easy as that.

Wayne shorter made brilliant music with miles davis, and continued to make brilliant music in weather report, many years later. !960-1985.

Chick Corea still gets Grammy's.

Other than that, all of my favorite musicians are dead...

I already addressed that. I didnt say the famous musicians I already know are obviously famous like those 3 people were famous at one point. I dont understand why dying would make you re famous. If I died, please dont cover my songs at dive bars, dont talk about me, silently think about what I lived for.

Prince and David Bowie were both musicians that I heard a lot about but never really took the time to listen to in depth. I only knew their big hits. After they died, I started hearing their songs on the radio while driving. I learned more about them since their passing. In fact, I'm pretty sure a lot of younger people might not have listened to these artists at all. Am I part of the problem? Is there some "grieving period" after which it's ok to discover artists again?

I've never listened to Jeff Buckley. If I started listening right now and really liked it, would it be wrong to consider myself a fan? Maybe I didn't understand the concerns in the OP.

Amen.

Can you name a musician that was not famous before they died and then became famous after words recently?

Also you specifically named prince in the OP so don't act like you weren't talking about those 3 artists

I would rather you all make fun of me than wayne shorter pass away and become facebook famous. That is ok with me. Chick Corea too. Herbie Hancock as well. They are actually on tour with John McLaughlin right now, very famous tour.

This is not what I expected to find when I looked him up

No offense to the guy, but jazz isn't exactly the most popular form of music in this day and age. So even after he dies nobody will probably hear about it. I'm sorry, Wayne.

No one will care when they die because they're not popular and iconic artists

Dude footprints is one of my favorite songs. Ron Carter on bass, miles on trumpet, tony williams on drums, the quintet was the fucking shit! Listen to that whole album, miles smiles.

I admit defeat. I shouldnt care about these things. I shouldnt accept people on facebook just because I know them, I should think twice about it. Prince was just as popular now as he was when he first started as he was one day before he died. He was always popular. Just in the back of our heads.
#35
Just to bring it back up, wasn't Prince Michael's main rival back in the 80's. So he's only slightly less famous than one of the most famous musicians ever.

Michael Jackson isnt the most famous musician ever. Not even close. Michael Jackson's record label has distributed more albums to stores worldwide than any other artist. That is it. That doesnt even mean he;s the top selling artist, just means his cds were shipped to stores worldwide. I believe Bach is the most famous musician ever. The first song I ever heard in my life was Joy of a mans desiring, or the entertainer by joplin, cant remember which one came first. But bach is a trillion times more famous than Prince and MJ combined, to the 10th power.

i agree with you man

i just unfollow people when they post religious rants or topics in the newsfeed
i'm not religious and i don't believe in your "god", so stop shoving it in my face lol

i think it's nice to remember dead musicians in that way, but i hate kids that grew up in the 2000's that are obsessed with Kurt Cobain and Nirvana, but they don't own a single record, yet they wear shirts from Hot Topic...

lol the average person couldn't tell a Bach piece from a Beethoven from a Mozart from a Haydn

In fact the most famous classical composer is John Williams by a wide margin.
