That's the second time I've seen this in this thread. Where does this come from? Who here "defends mediocrity"?
You do. ^^^ You may not realize it, but that is exactly why I ride you. It is nothing personal, it is strictly that I can't fathom some (and frankly most) of your ideologies with regards to bands and music.
You mention vocals. Hell, I mentioned vocals as well in Wade's first video. I think they, and I said they, need to get a good solid singing front man to really carry this off. But he made the point that "all in good time". And then proceeded to start working on his core band; it's feel and execution. Time well spent. I don't doubt that working on vocals would garner more financial rewards. But that kind of groove displayed in this video is the kind to keep people dancing regardless of how new or popular the song is.
The band is selling it through the groove. GOOD ON THEM! Personally, I think that is a great place to start. But I'm not saying it is the most important either. Agreed, the vocal wins every time. But why does that take away any importance from this groove work.
So, it is nothing personal, it just that I totally disagree with these things that come out of your mouth. That somehow time is being wasted by paying attention to what he's working on. (No, I'm not going to waste my time going back and quoting you)
And guido, no... I don't fancy myself, I'm just honest and offer my input. If I've said some things that seem silly to you and some, that's cool. I'm just trying to make a point. What you and I see as important are obviously very different. My hyperbole can get the best of me but my intentions are good.
