Well personally I love most of these bands. (I don't think anybody mentioned LEFTY did they? Worth a listen) It's these bands that have made rock, yes rock, exciting again for me after years in the dark ages.

You do have a point about bands not developing but that's the fault of the labels/industry not the bands. Bands just are not allowed time to develop and stretch anymore. I can't imagine any label now allowing a band to diversify in the way that the Beatles did. ("Er...nah. We don't do them three minute pop songs anymore. George plays the sitar and Ringo sings"!!!!) U2 have tried it but I'm not sure the've succeeded.

Best we can do is enjoy them while they last which, if the amount of promotion they're getting over here (UK) by the labels is anything to go by, won't be much longer. Mind you I AM the kiss of death for any band. If I buy it you can bet it will be available at 'a bargain near you' pretty damn soon!!!
