"When I was at school, music was a closed shop. The record companies had an iron grip on everything. It didn’t matter if a band had some written compositions because a singer would be produced by a producer whose friend was a songwriter, and with a band of session musicians and that’s how it went. But then The Beatles kicked open the doors and producers and A&R men were running all over trying to find bands that wrote their own material. The dynamic changed so quickly that a tidal wave overtook the business, and it took them a long while to lock it all back down again. Now with all your Simon Cowells, it’s back to where it was."
— Jimmy Page
