I don't think I'm shallow, I'm just stating the truth in my eyes and ears. Poison did go downhill with every look change they went through, They went from being completely fun and dressed with lipstick to Brets 'James Dean' shirt to taking themselves too seriously ala 'Something To Believe In', and thier look DID affect them. ~~ And Def Leppard were not boring, Pyromania is possibly my favorite CD from them BUT they became better as a band with 'Hysteria' and hence...a much cooler look. ~~ Kind of funny you should mention the song 'Streetkiller' from Great White but to the masses, Great White were a small fish in the ocean until Michael Lardie and his keys and him bringing them into the 'pretty boy' look, well, as far as that band could go with it. ~~ And as for Kip Winger, I'm not really sure what is going on with that guy, he doesn't look cool anymore and his solo CDs are okay but nothing compared to his Winger material, you know that, I know that and everyone else knows that. Put on the song 'Hungry' and then listen to something from 'This Conversation'.....you can't compare the 2 at all. He's in a different place, if that works for him fine, I do like his solo CDs but not like turning up a Winger CD. ~~ And I will always contend that the bands you mentioned still going strong Metallica, Iron Maiden are still going strong is because they are a simple basic 'metal' band, nothing more, of course that is going to appeal to a more general lazy audience. The one exception to that is the band you mentioned Dream Theater, 'Images & Words' is by far their most melodic and best work...Hmm...the band looked kind of cool too huh?....James LaBries CD 'Winter Rose' also is very cool, as was he. ~~ We could go on and on, but I choose to disagree, most people do, they like you think it's pointless to think the way I do and wonder why I do. I'm image oriented, I just have the balls to admit it and stand by it. I'm from the 80's and proud of it.
