how to like a band and not buy an album? Easy...you hear a million songs on the Radio, or MTV, or Toronto Rocks....that is of course, for all of us who were around back in the 70's/80's when these things played rock on TV and Radio and we watched daily.
Also, back in the "day"...you might have some albums and your buddies have others, and you sat around listening to each others albums in the basement, or in the backyard by the pool. Music was so much more social, compared to today where people just download single serving songs and never listen again.
Truth is, there are many other bands, like AC/DC, where I have only purchased one album (Razor's Edge)...but that doesn't mean I don't know almost every major hit (over 30?) and plenty of other non hit songs.
I can see, generally speaking, how it can be hard to understand that nowadays though, with the younger generation. There is, however still, you tube to listen to modern bands you might be interested in but don't buy the album (say....Firewind!)
So you see, loads of ways to like a band and not own an album.
