Hey Laurent

You have some excellent points for sure in this well thought out post. I do have to say that you are speaking from a much more fine tuned place than most people that listen to music are capable of hearing it from though.

While you and I can clearly hear the difference that Steve Smith brought to Journey or Tico Torres brings to Bon Jovi, the masses will never hear it and simply do not care if those two guys are in the band or not. In fact, most would not even know they were gone...

To most people that listen to music, sadly, the band IS defined by the voice or guitar.


Neal Schon and Mick Jones both admitted that Perry and Gramm's solo projects could have come straight from the bands. A normal listener would not be able to tell you that the rest of Journey did not play on "Oh Sherrie"

I respect you very much for the loyalty that you show the "other" band members but the sad truth is that there ARE key members in almost every band and the other members are as disposable as yesterday's garbage in the big picture.

Each band situation is different and there are certainly a handful of bands like "Rush" and "Asia" in which the members truly are equal, but in most cases, the "Steven Tyler/Joe Perry and three other guys situation is going on"
