So now you admit that music isn't about the art or creativity? There is a BIG difference between a musician making music and Joe Blow the accountant adding up figures for a CORPORATION, erm...isn't AOR always called CORPORATE rock?

You are right, there is nothing wrong with bands playing the same old thing, if that's what people want to hear. But spin this on it's head...while there are many who oppose something that "isn't new or creative", there is an equal if not greater number of people who oppose something that is new or different.

What it all boils down to is this...if the music makes an individual happy, who is anyone to say they are wrong? If I like Slang and someone else doesn't, are either of us right or wrong? No...

I like variety and bands willing to challenge themselves. Not everyone does and that's fine. Joe Blow is no more wrong for liking Band A who stays pure then maybe I am for not liking them for that very reason.

The bottom line is WE ALL LIKE SOME FORM OF MELODIC ROCK, no matter what subgenre you want to classify (otherwise we wouldn't be here!). If we can't start seeing some common point among us, then this music is going to stay in the closet,
