    First, read the new Zep thread before you reply...its in main...

    Then, lend your thoughts to this question...Is all the media necessary, or does the industry just think it is?

    What's up Sacfan? Kings rock! Maybe during one of the championship games this year at Arco we could have Eddy come and so the National Anthem. I'm sure the Maloof's, being the true rockers that they are could pull some strings.

    Can a band ignore MTV and still conquer?

    The most popular rock band in the world today (Creed) had no help from MTV. My Own Prison was all about radio, absolutely no help from MTV. You have to respect that about Creed. Creed is now throwing the symbolic f bomb at MTV every chance they get. And in case you havent noticed MTV isnt to fond of creed either.

    Well, I wonder about this sometimes...Zep didn't need it...Beatles didn't need it...Bruce didn't need it...James Brown didn't need it...

    If a band has the goods, can it skip it and ignore video? I wish more would...

    I can "agree to disagree" with RAF about (Queefe')Creed cause they suck big hairy donkey balls but can a band make it w/o MTV? In a way sure, I can see it happening. They would just have to play their cards right. Now I won't go into "manager" mode but if I HAD the funds to produce a high conglomerant band w/o MTV I say, yes I could.

    But Pearl Jam had those 3 videos made when their first cd was out, which was by far their biggest record. Since they have NOT been making videos, their sales have dropped severely.


    I think that if a band DID get huge without MTV, then MTV would go out of their way to somehow get that band into their programming any way they could to capitalize on their success. So, one way or another I don't think a band can get huge without MTV; they control damn near the whole market anymore.

    And they've gone nowhere but down since then. Good point, bad example [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]
