If someone recommends a band to me, I'll check them out. But I'm not going to wander into a record store and treat music like a term paper that needs to be researched.
Radio offered a way to discover new music. If the future of rock and roll is going to depend on people randomly showing up at shows or walking into an independent record mart, they ought to just shut the industry down entirely.
Another thing...I would suggest Pandora for you. Go on there, type in the bands you like to a station...listen...and dont skip every song that isnt a song you already know. It will throw in some stuff you have never heard and may even introduce you to new bands you might like. That is as easy as it gets.
