Roger Daltrey Slams Simon Cowell!

Meow!

The Who's Roger Daltrey recently spoke out against the quality of music that now becomes mainstream, and he singled out Simon Cowell as partly to blame!

He explains:

"We really need to break away from The X Factor and American Idol - that Simon Cowell thing. I really think the music industry will beat this slump and come back stronger. Groups like The Who, The Rolling Stones and The Beatles wouldn't have made it past the audition stage, let alone be shown on TV. That's the joke of it. The music they make on the shows is absolute tripe. He's made a good industry out of it, but it's belittled the power of music. He wouldn't know what the "X Factor" was if it bit him on the bullocks. There's people who like caviar and people who like fish and chips - but most people like fish and chips."

We think that's a pretty unfair generalization, considering how many legitimately talented singers have emerged from those types of competition! And many of them would have not had the means to succeed in the industry without Simon and his shows!

But every one has a right to their own opinion!

What do U think?? Team Simon or Team Daltrey??
