I completely disagree with #50. This was obviously written by someone who sees taking music seriously as a negative thing. That's what real professional musicians do: they put every inch of themselves into their music, and they create deep, thought-provoking, and often intricate and elaborate music. If someone's ignorant worldview doesn't permit this style of creating music, then fine. Just don't go slagging off music that is so far over your head, like progressive rock, concept albums, and The Beatles, for crying out loud. Besides, Sgt. Pepper wasn't the first concept album ever. Frank Sinatra was doing them back in the 50s, and surely others were as well, and probably before then, too.

After reading #50, I have no interest in reading the rest of the list. This is obviously written by someone who is evaluating music from a commercial perspective. Anyone who understands music knows that the commercial level is just one of many levels that figure into the overall picture of music. Unfortunately, the majority of the listening audience doesn't get this. Three cheers for rampant musical ignorance.

In case you didn't notice, Sir GH is a bit of a Beatles fan.

I agree with the Madonna and her British accent. Sure, I think their accent's awesome, but do you see me immitating Janis 'Jaws' Battersby?

39. AIDS
Although it was responsible for many deaths (Freddie Mercury and Eazy-E among them) and inspired one of the most insipid hits in the past three decades (“That’s What Friends Are For”), the most significant musical damage done by the AIDS virus came with the subsequent demonization of sex and drugs, two ingredients without which rock & roll become practically pointless — if not impossible.

16. Replacement Lead Singers
AC/DC’s impressive recovery from Singer-Vomit-Asphyxiation is the exception that proves the rule. If the phrase “Van Hagar” fails to convince, consider Rock Star: INXS and the macabre spectacle of Queen fronted by a leatherfaced Paul Rodgers.

LOL Look at their desciption of Brian:

1. Kids Today!
Back in our day, we didn’t have any of yer fancy iPods and ringtones and downloads. We didn’t have the luxury and convenience of your scrotum-rings and your World Wide Web logs. When we wanted to steal the new Uriah Heep album, we couldn’t just troll the Internets for it, we had to do it the old-fashioned way — by hiking to the store (uphill, both ways)
and shoving 12” of vinyl under our sweaters (which we had to knit ourselves). That’s why you sniveling whipper-snappers don’t appreciate the real value of music. Or Uriah Heep. Now get the hell off our lawn!


I just wish some people would accept that times change.

I bet whoever wrote this was on the receiving end of complaints by older people (can't think of a kinder way to say it!) for how 'easy they had it'.

So what, I have an iPod, I obviously have an Internet connection and I download music, it doesn't mean I don't appreciate music as much as (s)he does.
