MMMMMMMMM....Cofffee... D'oh!! And--unfortunately,heartburn. :-(

Good points,lads. But--I'm not exactly saying that 'melrock' would/could make some huge comeback (not that it might not,if given a chance--who knows?). All I'm saying is it is/was a force for many years and lots of people--older AND even younger,still love it. There wouldn't be any big selling nostalgia act tours if it weren't so. Melrock SHOULD have it's niche on radio just as other genres still do. There are lots of great songs/releases over the past 15-20 years that got totally ignored by the music media. And THAT is the main reason that melodic rock in general (not just Survivor/Journey clones,btw) remains a small niche. Most folks that dig music at all aren't running around like us nutballs clammoring for new tunes all the time. And they weren't back in the heyday,either. It was already THERE on the radio dial for them. The idea is-- if you hsaaven't HEARD it,how do you know whether you'd dig it or not? capishe? T
