Bullshit, same thing happened when the violin came out. People didn't like the advancement from the Viola so they shunned it. Same thing when the synthesiser came out. The 'professionals' at the time didn't like their lively hood to be reproduced by everyone. But what technology does is it raises the bar by making everyone capable and forces those with 'real' talent to strive to be above everyone else. What are we supposed to do? Keep reverting to this blues style rock n roll over and over again (it's been brought back to basics plenty of times over the last 60 years, Whit Stripes aren't original for that)? I'm all for technological advancements to constantly strive for new sounds and new genres. I would love to tell my kids or grandkids that I was young for the birth of a scene in new music, not simply to tell them that everyone still insisted on listening to Zeppelin and The Stones. It's a new age, embrace it, don't hinder it.
