sad but true

I've been saying this all along...

Most of us don't care all that much about image anymore but many younger people still do. Even anti-images are images. Hell, even Dave Matthews has glitzed himself up a bit. But AOR? You are right...no kid in their right mind is going to look at someone like Billy Greer (no offense Billy) and think that it's cool...no matter what the music may sound like. AOR is the kind of music that needs an image.

AOR bands need to clean up a bit...look at Urban Tale. They look contemporary and with the right push, could have a hit or two. Other bands should follow suit. I'm sorry but mullets and poodle perms just don't cut it anymore. Neither do these ugly assed mugshots that pass for album booklets. But, you can still have long hair...just get it in style and maybe some kids might take a second look. Then the music might follow suit.

Now like I said below, this is from a mainstream point of view. I could care less what a band looks like.
