Couldn't agree with you more, Chris, on DMB, Creed, and all that other hyped-up, overrated crap. Dave Mathews can't sing, period. He just can't! Whatever the squeaky sound he makes is so nasty, it makes me shiver. I absolutely hated him when he made such a joke out of his already pathetic ass singing In My Life during the John Lennon tribute concert in NY last October. In My Life is not a difficult song to sing, it doesn't require a wide range, ant yet, he just reduced that awesome song to gibberish. True talents are still recognized years, decades and centuries after they are gone. C'mon, who's going to remember Creed - these self-important immitators - 5-7 years from now? Whatever happened to Hootie and the Blowfish??? Remember that "superband" from ... 1995? And those guys were better than Creed. Most of "alternative" fans know little about music - just like the majority of the alternative "musicians" themselves (although not all alternative bands are garbage (pun intended!)) So, the fans just follow the trend, not the art. Did I just say "art"?
