Washington, Nov 27 (ANI): Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber has criticised artists who resort to miming their songs, instead of performing live during their concerts.

The theatre impresario hopes that the music industry will turn its back on lip-synching stars.

“The music business as well know it is virtually dead. The day of lip-sync manufactured pop is dying. Now everything is about live performance,” Contactmusic quoted him as saying.

Webber, however, agrees that many bands play real gigs now a days.

He also wants youngsters to learn to take music lessons.
“Whether you want to take up music professionally or just want to make music for fun, never has it been more important to learn to play a musical instrument than now,” he said. (ANI)
