Members TIKILOCKEDOUT Posted July 4, 2006 Members Share Posted July 4, 2006 Should it matter in rock music if somebody is overweight a few pounds or just full on overweight? Would you not listen to a band if you saw a photo and there was a fat guy or girl in it ... would that stop you from listening to the music before you even heard it? Would you not want a person who was overweight IN your band? Do you care, does it matter, should it matter? In a world of such body consciousness and body image being shoved in yer face 24 hours a day I think it's stupidity ... I look back at some great rock n rollers who had some weight on them and they rocked harder than allot of sweet skinnies! Leslie West is one such dude and Frank Black is clearly another. I'm no suggesting a backlash where we all go out and sponsor an obese person into our bands but I really think all this body consciousness in modern culture and music is for the birds quite frankly.
