That probably has some value in real life, considering most people around the age group of the posters here don't usually listen to these bands. For example, I could try to whore the Who to a lot of my friends since they don't listen to them, though the Who are fairly popular.

just because a band is popular doesnt mean people have heard that bands cds.
Still, most people have heard of them, so whoring will result in little success.

Well, I've bought several albums by bands involving ex-members (Silverginger 5, The Chasers, The Yo-Yos, The Jellys..I got into Devin Townsend because he was a session guitarist with them for a few months in 1994) and amongst other things I bought an EP by a band loosely associated with the shop where I started my addiction to the band (and met the band's bassist in, a couple of times), and paid more or less full CD price for a Kerrang sampler from 1994 that I found by chance in Florida, because it happened to have Suckerpunch on it.

That used to be me. They'll always be my favourite band, but the intensity has subsided. Which band did you see live and when?

Unfortunately I wasn't old enough when I first saw them to remember the show (my parents took me to a concert during the Illusion days) and I also saw the new band perform during the 2002 tour.

Even if Chinese Democracy never comes out (which is almost a given nowadays) they are and will remain to be my favourite band till I'm in the ground. Though like you, the intensity has died down quite a bit.

Awesome, albeit Axl's voice was a little pitchy here and there. Regardless, it was an experience I wouldn't trade for the world. In the back of my mind when I watched the new band play I wished it was the old band (as all GnR fans do) but it was still great. Richard Fortus really kicks *** on guitar.

Yeah I do, quite a few.


I guess the main one would be the Smiths, but if we're being technical, Nobuo Uematsu would be it.



The Smiths:

Albums Owned: 9.
Times seen live: 0
Have you met your band of choice: No
Have you had your picture taken with them: No
Do you own their autograph(s): No
Which merchandising do you own: A "Queen Is Dead" T-Shirt
Do you communicate with them (albeit sporadically) through e-mail, IM, telephone, ...: If only Jelle, (a).
If applicable compare their number of plays on last fm with the second:

The Smiths: 228
Napalm Death: 133.

Do you constantly whore them: I try.
With success: Sometimes, I guess
Have you bought anything because it's remotely related to your fanboyed band?: You bet your *** i have, :p.



So there you have it. I listen to the Smiths almost all of the time. When I'm not listening to them, you'll find me listening to either:
Gorillaz,
Nobuo Uematsu (As I am now..),
Napalm Death,
Nirvana.


Or so it would go at the moment. ;)

What's that mean? Just because they think a band is boring, it makes them in a category that you made up they listen to? Because all the people I know that think Opeth are boring, listen to Rap. :p

It depends. Some cool bands will hang near their merch table (like God Forbid), and hopefully no one notices that they are in a band but you. That's why it's cooler meeting less popular bands.

Bigger bands are hard to meet unless they are having a signing (which doesn't really count as meeting them in my opinion).

So hoping they hang near the merch table, I've know that from the shows I've been to in my life. But those were never anything huge like the CoB show I'm going to in Nov.

Have you bought anything because it's remotely related to your fanboyed band?: Yeah, I've gotten into other artists (Billy Bragg, Cocteau Twins etc.) because they were recommended to me as a Smith fan, and I've bought their albums. Also any bands who cover the Smiths, I usually check them out and if I like I buy. Bands that are named after\in honour of Smiths songs, I check them out. Bands that mention being Smiths fans in interviews\magazines, I check them out. I bought The Perks of Being a Wallflower because I was told I would like it, the main character's favourite song is "Asleep" by the Smiths. I'm sure there are other things but eh.

edit: and I should mention I tolerate Morrissey due to my Smiths obsession, I should get some credit for that.
