Nothing From Nothing leaves nothing…

“Nothing from nothing leaves nothing. You gotta have somethin’ if you wanna be with me…” (Billy Preston)
NothingFunny how, on these said modern times we’re living, so many of us seem like having lost what stands as elementary good sense. And so ironical in the meantime, considering the facilities left at our disposal in order to reputedly communicate.
I’m saying ‘reputedly’ on purpose when havin’ a look at how so many people tend to express themselves. Way more in a selfish / self-centered way as opposed to putting themselves in the position of dialoguing which is the basic principle of communication…

A quick look at the dictionary leads us the definition and the origins of the latter… “to share, divide out; communicate, impart, inform; join, unite, participate in”. Literally “to make common”. From the Latin “communicationem”. A word beginning with the prefix “com” itself coming from the Latin “cum” which means… with! In other words, miles away from that widely nowadays shown ‘Me, Myself & I’ attitude… And this is exactly the starting point of our society’s major problems. Itself ased on the circulation of messages spread in a pyramidal and so to say one way street manner. With people dropping as opposed to exchanging messages. And, on most cases, not responding to the reactions they may get. With many of them eventually complaining about the situation at the end…

No wonder why music, whatever its quality may be, is on such critical conditions. So many talents who do not make it at the end. Or take so much time to do it because of attitudes. And when not, because of simply not doing what it takes to have their messages spread in a proper way.
As a matter of fact, many would do music before even thinking about a strategy to have it known by the biggest amount of people. Beginning with the ones reputedly supposed to act as their ambassadors. In other words, who tends to be known as the prescribers whenever spreading their word. From PR’s to radio show presenters and press reviewers.

“Give the people what they want”, used to sing The O’Jays. But first and foremost give (your) people what they need. Simply coz’, as according to the late Billy Preston: “Nothing from nothing leaves nothin’. You gotta have somethin’ if you wanna be with me”
