...Just a side-note here. I personally don't think we can assume that because something sells well or because an artist is successful, that they are necessarily making quality music. Otherwise, Korn Bizkit and Spice Club 7 would have to be rated as modern-day freakin' musical geniuses. Know what I mean?
Cheers, Don

The term 'making quality music' is so subjective.. What's quality to one person is tripe to another. An artist will try as hard as anything to put out an album as best he/she can. It's up to the buying public to determine what's quality in their own way, and vote with their hard earned cash.

For what it's worth, Bolton and Columbia have definitely done their demographic studies right. As millions of 30 somethings and bored housewifes will testify.. As I said, good on him.. My only complaint .. keep him off TV sitcoms!!
