Another quote from the same forum my friends. It’s becoming a gold mine! This time it’s interesting that the writer (not the same one as the previous quote) is basically saying the same thing that I was in my previous post.
How open should an artist be about his personal life? Should he reveal all and sundry? Leave himself exposed to the bone? And how fair is it to compare David to Adele? Is David even in Adele’s league as an artist? (I may have put my big foot in my mouth with this particular question lol). Does David even want to bare his soul?
He’s got enough life experience already to write deep meaningful material, he’s 20, not 12, only two years younger than Adele. His only problem is that he doesn’t want to reveal his personal experiences and true feelings/emotions. He wants positive messages out and to be a ‘role model’. That’s great, but real life is also about sh*t that happens to everyone. His feelings and emotions about his father getting busted with a hooker could be enough material for an entire album. Adele doesn’t hold herself and that’s why her music feels so real and raw. She writes about good and bad, but it’s honest. David needs to make a decision. If he wants to write himself, then he needs to be ready to expose himself. If he’s too private to do that, then he shouldn’t write and focus on interpreting other people’s exeriences. Doesn’t matter who wrote the song, but it has to be real. TOSOD with all due respect was lots of talking about nothing. His self-consciousness was noticable in every song.
