    "I wanted to create a bridge between white people and black people"


    Fuck me if Martin Luther King had said that we would all be taught it in school.
    Who the hell does this guy think he is.

    His 'take' on R&B is a far from what i consider R&B to be as it could be.

    The phrase "reinventing the wheel" springs to mind.

    This is like Take That saying they had invented boy band pop music... Hello... The Beatles.

    All Guetta has done is made an electro/house album and got every big name in US R&B (so-called) to sing on it. That is it. That is all it is.
    Its absoluetly full of massive hit songs but that does not make it groundbreaking or original.

    Surprised at FatBoy Slim comparing what he and the other Big Beat guys did, which was actually pretty groundbreaking for that generation that missed out on the original funk or Breaks scene (no i dont mean that shitty Stanton Warriors type breaks grrr) to what Guetta has done.

    Most of the songs on Guettas latest album are the same song with bits swapped around.
    Calvin Harris is doing the same thing with less success although his single with Rihanna is the biggest on the Top40 dancefloors.

    Post Script:
    Dont get me wrong. Guetta is massive and his music, whilst not my thing, its not the worst around but puuuuurrrlease its hardly Sgt Peppers or Never Mind The Bollocks or Dark Side of The Moon or Nevermind or even Hot Fuss...


    Although i do quite like that Commander song with Kelly Rowland

    Yeah. That was odd, quite the mission. Agree with your view on his take (phew) of RnB, and also, combining two essentially "black" music genres to bridge between white and black people? (I'd at least claim that house music is, at least historically quite "black", no? Not an unfamiliar story of a thing going mainstream and becoming white...)

    I think r&b and house music are much better off separate.
