I couldn't agree more, Kieran...

Kieran,
Very well said, my friend. I am a "lurker" I guess. I visit the site everyday, but only occasionally post here. I'm just shy-ha!ha!
There's some of the modern stuff out there that I enjoy-3 Doors Down, SR-71, and heck even Creed, but I don't consider any of those as "bringing our type(melodic rock n roll) music to the masses" either. They are what they are-modern/heavy pop. Nothing wrong with that, though. But I don't see the teeny-bop crowd that, by listening to this modern pop, as somehow being turned on to the likes of Journey, Warrant, House of Lords, etc-the true melodic rock type of music this site supports. I, like Andrew, still think that bands with a classic sound can still make a go of it considering that they are putting out top quality product. I am optimistic about the future of melodic rock and really hope that the labels like Z, Now and Then, Escape, MTM, Kivel will put some quality rock n roll on our hands in 2001. I'll agree, there have been a few clunkers released in the past couple of years, but I think that these labels are fine-tuning things and we are in store for some good stuff. Keep up the fantastic work, Andrew.

Take care and melodic rock on!
ALAN
