  1. Now I’m not defending the music, but don’t you think the spectacle is part of the theatrics in live music?
    like you pointed out, elton john, KISS, etc. it’s all about the moment. it will most likely will be dated,
    but at least they made an effort to be grand and spectacular, no?

  2. I see your point, but I don’t want theatrics in music. I don’t need wacky costumes and a crew of dancers on stage. I want good, catchy songs performed well by likable people.

    Obviously, I’m not a fan of Broadway musicals or bands like the Insane Clown Posse. 🙂

  3. i get what you’re saying, i think it’s just within the realm of the music these people are producing it goes hand in hand with the type of music that’s being produced
    As in Peal jam doesn’t need that because that’s not the type of imagery they’re not trying to represent (unless it’s a TARGET ad, haha)
    I smell a bit of put down towards the other acts because they don’t fit your musical tastes which is understandable, and I’m not trying to bust chops,
    but it’s a big circus and there’s tons of other venues to look for the music you want instead of just dismissing something because of a visual representation it gives.

    everything has its look from NIN’s black clad clothing, to nirvana’s plaid shirts, to WEEZER’s hipster get ups and Bruce springsteen’s blue collar get up.
    All music has been given a make over, meticulously no matter what’s being shown. There is no unplanned step, you’re being sold something, brotha.

    it’s just the level of pomp and circumstance behind it.

  4. I know sometimes I put down things I don’t like. I admit that. 🙂 I just want music to go back to the way it was.
