Brian May Of Queen Calls The Voice An Insult To Music
You may be a fan of NBC’s reality TV competition, The Voice, but Queen guitarist Brian May certainly isn’t.
He recently spoke out against the British version of the show, which features Jesse J, Will.i.am, Tom Jones and Danny O’Donoghue.
May wrote on his own website, “”Sorry, hate to be negative but The Voiceis the dullest, dumbest, most depressing show on TV.” Adding, “It’s the ultimate insult to music and to performers.”
Though we are not sure May seems to understand the concept about the show and the blind audition rounds. “Every time I catch a glimpse of young singers busting their guts trying to win somebody’s attention, who is rudely sitting with their back to them… I feel sick. I hope this vile show dies a natural death very soon,” May wrote.
Apparently May doesn’t hate everything about the show. He does seem to be a fan of Tom Jones, though he wishes that Jones would decide to walk away from The Voice.
What do you think, is The Voice an insult to music, or is Brian May just a grumpy? Let us know in the comments below.
