You narrow-minded, little man!

When I was in a band back in the day, we'd sh*t on guys like you, Tony. All ego, self-centred and only in the biz for what you could get out of it... not for what you could give back. Your attitude is the worst, man! There's a whole world out there- quite possibly big enough for your hyper-inflated ego, Tony. This world (outside your fantasy one) consists of people who love a band's music and people who ostensibly love their music but only because it's fashionable. When the second group starts to out-number the first, the market does, indeed, widen for a band, but its base remains with the first group. When record sales sky-rocket on account of group #2, it's all smiles, back-slaps and handshakes from the record companies. After this second group's 15-minute attention span elapses and they move onto their next temporary obsession, record company faces grow despondant. Then, the axe starts swingin'...all because the band couldn't maintain a level of popularity that could sustain the flighty interests of a 14-year old teenager.

Sad, how a band that lives by the trend dies by it as well. It's pretty pathetic, Tony, how you feel music must be validated by fame and fortune. Keeping it small isn't what I'm advocating at all.. what I support is keeping it REAL.
