I could care less about work ethic, drive, running corporations, or building brands (so I guess I'd have been one of those bands that died out lol), I just think Jon's a great songwriter and frontman. Richie's a great singer and guitarist, but when it comes to catchy hooks and great lyrics, Jon's at the top of the class IMO. Some may say his recent music's too safe, but some of those same people love Darius Rucker (who to me is too safe), so its all opinion and personal taste.

But yeah, Jon must have done something right, beyond just being a great songwriter/frontman, for he and his band to have lasted this long. So I'll agree with Desmond. And keep looking for that dream job, so I can finally relate to the whole workaholic/ambition thing society puts on a pedestal and you all keep praising ;-)
