oh yeah. there are exceptions to the theatrics...bowie does come to mind. frank zappa is another.
franks earlier shows had a lot of theatrics but the music was still prime.
i am talking twisted sister and a lot of the 80's hair bands
alice cooper...those types. just making up for the fact the music is not that good.
drumsrfun, one of the things that turned me off to van halen along with just not liking the music was hit attitude. back in the day when he started
tapping, people would go crazy. tats the reason they went to the shows and tried to get into the front row...not only did they want to hear him tap
but they wanted to see it. so, what does eddie do?
he turns around and puts his back to the audience...he didnt want people to take his 'moves'..
to me, thats not what it is all about. instead of turning around so people couldnt see he should have done whatevr he could to allow people to see
it...share it...let people in on the secret..you know?
also, i like players that can play fast but i like it when they put it into musical context....cant explain it. i just dont feel that van halen did
owlbear....i agree. i cant stand elvis.
i do not like a single song of his....i dont like the way he dressed or the way he ripped off african music or the way he ate peanut butter and banana
sammies on the toilet....i also hated his fat face. i still hate him and all the elvis impersonators out there...
