Britney Spears is from Mississippi, not far from where Elvis was born.
Mind you, listening to her voice when she attempts to sing - it sounds like she's descended from a herd of wild cows.
No offence - you understand.

I hate Coldplay, but come on, the UK is amazing for music. I now live in S Korea and I miss the music scene a lot. I have been a musician all my life and the UK is a great place to be for music. It is so diverse. You can find any type of music anywhere. Especially in places like London (obviously) or Liverpool.

Fine, but the music that makes it big - Pop Music - is just awful here. Small gigs and local bands are good. I live in Edinburgh and goin to a Jazz show tonite - great! But the crap that gets exported is just terrible terrible music.

Unfortunately that is the world we live in. Like i said, i am a musician that lived in the UK for most of my life and it is amazing for music there. Sure, Brasil is fantastic for music, as is Japan, France and most other places, but nothing beats the UK for variety. Of course the shit gets into the Charts, but who listens to the Charts?? no-one over the age of 12 I bet. The UK is still the most amazing place for music and hopefully always will be. Diversity is what it is all about. I dont give a shit about the charts, but I do know that the UK is the most diverse culture on earth and that the music scene mirrors that fact. I don't live there anymore, and to be honest, don't really wanna live there again, but you cant beat the UK for music.
