Roger Daltrey wants to break away from X Factor & American Idol type shows
The Who star claims that Cowell is ruining the music industry, saying that iconic bands like The Who, The Rolling Stones and The Beatles would never have made it past the audition stages of his shows.
“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,” he added. “That’s the joke of it.
“The music they make on the shows is absolute tripe.”
He continued: “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 b*llocks.”
