Are you sure? Judging by the patterns in music sold recently, few people seem to want talent... As for humour, there is enough bands out there take take themselves too seriously, I think we need someone like the Darkness every once in a while...
In my store....(My) .... they seem to like talent.
Of course I keep Queen, Satch, SRV, Cream, Joe Bonamassa, Beatles and bands of the like on full rotation....
Usually on LP.... yes, we have over 20,000 new and used cds... but we also have 10,000 LP records.
I gave the Darkness a chance.... I don't think they completely suck.... but IMHO they won't make it as far as Oasis.
Noel Gallager could write songs..... The Hawkins brothers may get along better than the Gallager's ..... but the writing is sad.
....And just so you know... I've never sold a Justin Timberlake cd in my store...we have them... no one has ever bought one. I sell a few Brittney's.... thats about it.
I sell Stevei Ray Vaughan and Joe Bonamassa more than anything in the store.
If any of you want to check out a real guitarist/singer.... Check out any of 27 yr old, New Yorker , Joe Bonamassa's 3 cds..... He's a fantastic rough voiced, smokin guitar player.....that isn't a SRV rip-off like so many others.
