    NY Times Article on Bands Replacing Singers.. Good Read

    My wife shared this with me today and I thought you fellow Linkers would enjoy this article from the NY Times. It's a good read.

    It mentions VH in several spots, including the Dave vs. Sammy civil war that still rages on. The author also talks about Queen, INXS, and how in certain cases, if the music is truly what carries a band, the lead singer doesn't matter so much. (I like the part about the Motown acts.)

    Btw, Doc Mcghee is a lunatic.

    KISS is already halfway there, so why not replace 'em all?

    Saw Kelly Hansen mentioned in the article as fronting Foreigner--saw them about 5 weeks ago, and it was like a 30 year-old (IF that) Lou Graham, to the letter voice. Having Jason Bonham on drums didn't hurt either. Mick's the only original left in the band, but this line-up kicked major arse

    I can't picture The Cars without Ric Ocasek or Foreigner without Lou Gramm.

    I think Ric Ocasek said he would never perform as The Cars out of respect for Ben Orr, so it might be a little tasteless to have Todd Rungren (which is strange in itself).
