Gil Moore Thinks Drake And The Weeknd’s AI-Generated Songs Are ‘Horrible’

In the podcast ‘Beer Rum & Rock N Roll’, Triumph drummer Gil Moore had a chat about artificial intelligence and what would happen if not used properly. He mentioned two mainstream musicians, The Weeknd and Drake, about some fake tracks of theirs made by AI. Transcribed by Blabbermouth, he stated his opinion on the matter and told:

“Last week, I know I was talking with my buddy Noel, and he was talking about the fact that there was, I guess, a fake Drake track out there, or more than one, and a fake track from The Weeknd. It’s horrible. Why would they shrug it off and go, ‘oh, I don’t care’? It’s offensive. You wouldn’t wanna see that happen with art in our world. Imagine if you had AI doing all the paintings and there were no more great artists in any area.”

There’s nothing technology can’t do these days, and Moore knows that. However, he is also aware that malicious people can use artificial intelligence, and he is not happy about it. He continues as follows:

“I’m just saying I think there’s two sides to the argument. We’re not gonna be able to hold back technology, so we might as well go, ‘Okay, whether we like it or not, it’s here to stay.’ What we really can hope is that companies that are ethnical… So, ChatGPT, which is the big gun right now, is developed by Microsoft. I believe Microsoft to be an ethical company. I believe that they will do their best to try and see that the uses are for good. We’ve gotta try to keep it out of the hands of the bad actors and being used for purposes for which it’s not intended.”

The drummer is not the only one to reflect his ideas on the matter. Some famous names, such as Nick Cave and Liam Gallagher of Oasis, have also talked about this before. While some of them like the idea of using artificial intelligence for themselves, the others are not very happy with this idea.
