    HH was decent..when they went under the name "A day in the life". And yes HH is local, but that still doesn't mean I have to like them lol. No offense.:

    Good call JF. There are plenty of songs by bands that generally suck, or by bands than never put out another song that I find enjoyable on some level. Even if they are derivitive or v.75 of the flavor of the month.

    Vatican Plum, you are correct. The intrinsic thread that goes through bands like string cheese is that their songs suck.

    And to those that think that all the good music has already been written I say BULLOCKS! Almost every tuesday something new and good comes out.

    I went to school with the yahoos from Watershed. I never liked them, but they used to sell their albums in the school store.

    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    Re: Music question: Should the sins of the children be visited upon the parents?

    There was a post on here that hit it on the head: A band comes out that revolutionizes or pushes music in another direction and then the evil music executives come along and try to cash in on it with a bunch of knock-offs.

    Is it Blink-182's fault that we had all those pseudo skater punk bands?

    I don't believe so. It's the label's fault, but as vaticanplum stated, some of that money goes for the development of new bands.

    Where I have differed from most on here is that I am totally without shame in what I like.

    I like some Styx songs. Journey, too. Styx made crap, lots of it. But there are some good songs in their catalog, too.

    I find what some think to be classic as just God-awful: never got the Neil Young or Eric Clapton thing, but to each his own.

    I don't ever want to be that record store clerk passing judgment on other's tastes (remember the ones in the 80s and 90s with dyed black hair and a wardrobe from Goodwill? And you're going to look down your nose at my White Lion purchase? lol)

    If anybody here looked in my IPod, you'd find Dolly Parton, System of a Down, The New Pornographers, Motley Crue, and Avril Lavigne. I also have a ton of Phil Collins,Genesis, The Cure, and New Order.

    At the end of the day, I like a good melody, no matter how the record company is trying to categorize somebody or if it's a knock off of somebody else.

    Roger Ebert used to say that a movie isn't good just because it is original and it isn't bad just because it's not original.

    It's not what it's about, but rather how it goes about it.

    And no matter how hard I try, if i like it, it's in my iPod, even if it means Bryan Adams gets a few more royalties.

    My great uncle was the pianist and arranger for the Charlie Kehrer Orchestra that played at Moonlight Gardens and Beverly Hills Supper Club in the 50s. His nephew (my uncle) was in the Haywoods. Yes, the Heywoods, for any of you who remember I am sure "Billy Don't be a Hero" is now relentlessly bouncing around in your head. (Actually, I am pretty sure he left the band before that song, but the point remains- he was involved.)

    Anyway, I think this may prove the point- here are two generations, one arguably producing music during a golden age of american jazz, the other participating in the mindnumbing decline of music into the 70s.

    The family is waiting to see what the next generation produces. Hopefully, we are finished torturing the world.

    And that thing, in my opinion, is the best of the three.

    Musical tastes are great, aren't they?
