well, I think U2 and springsteen are live acts you can check out and still 
feel good about it. that's just me anyway. even the hives are a good live act.   

obviously, I have what you might call "an opened mind" (not saying you don't 
mind you) so I admire more or less all kinds of music and groups and things 
like that, although I may not be willing to purchase any of their albums or 
wanna go see them live cause it's "not my thing" (ha ha). but I still admire them 
for doing what they wanna do. I don't think the world will come to an end 
cause of rap and what you call "new school R&B". that's what politicians are for 
but let's not turn this into another political discussion. ; )

there was one band I heard through Little steven's radio show that I liked 
and I got their album and heard it and enjoyed it, and i've never seen them. I 
finally did on "last call with carson daly" and wasn't I surprised that that 
high pitched voice came from a man instead of a woman. ha!   they're called 
"apples in stereo". they were mentioned here on the webring one time cause the 
lead singer mentioned that he liked the who.
