Agreed. Just surprised at the length of the ranting. I'm sure RTL would be on his side as would most of the 80's & 90's era players.
I’m stuck between him sounding like a whinging bitter and twisted golfer (like Lagpressure) and an experienced player that has some very good points.

not exactly the best comparison. Good but has a few flaws. Golf equipment has been evolving since they started playing one form or another over 200 years ago. Sure Brad mastered his clubs and may feel duped as others come along with newer technology clubs. If he was SO good with the old clubs, he should be good enough to switch with evolving equipment. The music comparison has more to do with the listening publics tastes and trends- nothing to do with someone being able to play a trumpet over a someone pressing buttons on a sampler. I never heard John McEnroe or other tennis players complain about racquets going from wood to graphite etc. They adapted.
Here’s a comparison up your alley stink: how would you feel if you devoted 20 full years to learning the finer nuances of trumpet only to watch electronic giants like Casio and Yamaha takeover and kill the fine brass-makers to dominate with digital product because it can be mass produced easier and allow substantially higher margins?
And then watch teenage IT geeks take over the music scene with their fully digital outfits, including sequencing trumpets loaded with samples from the finest trumpets ever made played in world’s best auditoriums. Sure, a tonne of expressiveness disappears, but 90% of the audience don’t realise or even care anyway, these things still sound great and can do stuff no maestro ever could.
You still love to take out your shiny piece when you’re at home, it’s your lifelong passion and it takes you to your special place, but you know that you’re only going to get gigs if you go digital.
