Well speaking as someone who was once a 12 year old girl (yas hard to believe i know) when i got into rock as much as i loved the music the image got me hoked too. All these fellas with great hair and scarves and bandanas etc, i loved to take that on as my image in order to be different to all my shool mates. Much as i love melodic rock the current image or lack of image isn't going to get 12 year old girls into the scene, they are not going to think 40yr old bald guys are the next pin up are they?
While i don't want melodic rock to fall back into the 80's more hair than substance trap we do need to appeal to a younger audience if our music is to stay alive as one day we will all be to old and knackered to be going to gigs! Lets be honest how many really young people do you see at the gods?
Anyway i am not critising any of our present bands as i love what is left of the scene but a few pretty boys with an outlandish image couldnt do the scene any harm!
