The Beyonce live show\doc on Netflix is really good.

Nice. I saw some of the JGB shows at that theater years and years ago. It would be nice if the Smiths gave it a go again.


#407

If only.

I love this. Does it in stride. Rob Halford was my favorite metal singer in the 80’s. He’s still a badass.

I was not aware the Beatles were a boy band?
CNN seems to think so by comparing BTS to the Beatles??
:confused::thinking::roll_eyes::grinning::smile:


#412

To be fair they probably were one of the first boy bands.


#413

Agreed. And, believe it or not, Genesis was a boy band too. Their first album, From Genesis To Revelation, is basically a bunch of demos about young love, lost love, etc.


#414

… but Genesis’ singer was a little different than the rest of the boy bands.


#415

True, but his stage dramatics didn’t start until their second studio album, Trespass, came out. Their first album was shear pop mush.


#416

I have to admit, I don’t know a lot about their origins… but I do like their first few albums.

Then Selling England By The Pound, I loved.

I think it all depends on what one’s definition of “boy band” is. To me “boy bands” are/were mostly created by someone not actually in the band. They’re assembled vocal groups primarily. Not actual musicians. The only prerequisites needed is a certain look, be able to carry a tune half decent & dance OK. Talented musicians & songwriters need not apply. For these reasons, I have to completely disagree on the Beatles and Genesis being considered “boy bands”. Even in their early years.


#418

The Beatles are as much of a boy band as Led Zeppelin :smile:


#419

I agree with this definition. And by that definition, the Sex Pistols were a boy band.

I’ve said that for many years, and I stand by it.


#420

I agree.

This is rather disturbing. How could all these master recordings not not have been stored in a vault that was fireproof.
