great post man and i agree with almost everything on there. except the above. i dont know if you have to keep your eye on what happens behind the scenes. i mean, whats important is the music and how that sounds. sure you might miss out on who are the innovators but you also hear other music without being biased. choosing the innovators and refusing to listen to the followers is excluding so many bands, which are likely to be absolutely horrid, but some may be making very good music. i cant think of any examples (big night) but ill try and get back later
