There are some talented singers, actors etc. in this error too. Even the greats of yesteryear were of a low count. less than a handful in each decade. That still exists now with the current crop.
Too much emphasis on the old school and too much hype for them too from the oldies, I feel.
I understand what you are saying and yes as time passes by, legends grow bigger but you have to admit, there were some iconic voices in yesteryear.
Take someone like Whitney Houston, who isn't that "old school", who nowadays can come close to a voice like that?
Let alone someone like Billy Holiday, Anita Baker, Diana Ross....
I don't even want to mention the men because there were some real great one's.
