Used to be, when they had a great act that had consistently great material , they'd push 'em until the public quit buying thier stuff.
Now, a good act comes out, they get huge publicity on thier 1st release, sometimes the 2nd...and then you never hear about them from anyone but fans.
They don't get radio play anymore, they get fewer TV appearances...it's like a wasteland for everyone but the newest ppl out there.
Is the whole of this country just nutso over that damned Idol show? Cuz that's what it seems like to me sometimes. Doesn't matter if you're really that good, as long as you're the newest thing, everyone else is yesterday's news.
Even the "greats," like Peter Gabriel or Springstein or Mellencamp, or the newer guys, like Collective Soul, get no air space when they come out with anything new.
What the hell is WRONG with these ppl?
Or is it just me?
