hi John!

I totally agree with you, but i think that there is again a bigger fanbase for AOR/MHR.

1. Print medias notice that there´s something else than Korn and Black metal they also begin to feature "our" music. Just look at the publications we´ve got here in Austria or Germany, like RockHard magazine or BREAK OUT, which has got MHR as their main content and is the 4-5 biggest Metal Magazine in the german speaking areas. Also a few Fanzine´s are out like "melodic Journey" in Germany.

2. Of course you´re right with saying :" today kids wann hear N´sync, Korn or whatever. (except for me..;-) ) But thats REALLY cause MTV blockades everything that doesnt fit into their programme., e g. AOR/MHR, "real" Punk Rock , Prog rock ( look at those band tey´ve all got huge fanbase´s and their albums go int the charts on high positions and still NO Airplay, example Spocks beard, DT..), "true" metal or whatever.

I think in the 80ies MTV played everything song that had a video and commercial potential (...mainly because they had to do so...they also where new onto the scene...?), but today they play what they want and not what the viewer wants to see, cause no one can tell me that top 10 act, in that case Dream theater ( was on 8 in the first week in Germany..) doesnt want to get airplay on a worldwide availabele TV-channel when they ´ve got the chance to. Same goes for PC69 they also have beem on 58 ithink on german charts (poorly not here in Austria...;-( ... )

Just imagine turning on MTV and watching Dare and Jaded heart right after Korn or Harem Scarem on the news or (--would be a dream come true,......;-)

thats it
