What logic doesn't work? The fact that they're a band and they can do anything they choose to do with their live show instead of listening to people tell them on a message board how to spend their...

Not to be snide but have you taken a look at their books? Do you know their manager? Everyone thinks all these bands are making boat loads of cash for some reason. They're probably making a decent...

New industry man. Less money all around so playing with back tracks is a must to make profits and not have to pay out multiple musicians. With that being said they really own the stage and their live...

Super cheesy contemporary Christian music. Sorry, I never thought this dude was incredible even 5 years ago. His best stuff has always been writing for other acts or commercial work.

I think you missed it when I said NOT including classical arrangers (i.e. violinists, cellists, etc.) Ringtones aren't evoking an emotion though. They're in place for to perform a task.

Exactly. Once someone starts to try and make it clinical they should just quit. You can't learn how to express an emotion in a class room. You go out there and experience things to learn that. I'm of...
