"In my day you had musicians who experimented with drugs. Now it's druggies experimenting with music" - Alfred G Clark (circa 1972)
Burn down the disco. Hang the blessed DJ. Because the music that he constantly plays, it says nothing to me about my life.
I like Britney Spears, and I'd be thrilled to see her release a good album. Girl's dumb as a pontoon boat, but she seems to be completely devoid of any ill will towards anyone or anything. She was just too famous too early and has been too sheltered ever since, so lacks the tools she needs to develop herself as a strong adult -- and it's near impossible for her to get enough time to herself to develop them. I guess that's why I have a soft spot for her: whereas some people have had tools at the ready and chose to veer off the rails, I almost feel like she never had a chance. but I've said it before and I'll say it again -- anybody who is remotely responsible for Toxic is aces in my book.
There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.
I went with Rocker. Teams are just that desperate for pitching.
I went with Mel. I believe he had more going for him before his "moment" and that momentum will help him.
Rocker's incident was a long time ago. People may forget it but it's kinda late to salvage his image.
I agree that Rush was an odd choice for this poll. Other than his drug addiction (and with the respect people have for Josh Hamilton on this thread, I can't see why people would jump on him for that problem), most of the so-called "damage" to his image is from the opinions of those who don't listen to him.
