I'm sure I would, Peter! :)

I like discussions about music evolution. I also know it can be futile to pigeonhole anyone. I mean, Johnny Cash?! Rock? Country? More of one? Both? Where does the line begin? Where does a fan start?

I mean, KISS are rock, but if I ask someone to listen to "Beth" (from the album DESTROYER), they might wonder what they are listening to, if they had expected hard rock/glam rock/metal.

Why cant it all just be rock n roll? Why does it have to have so many labels? Metal. Nu-metal. Hard rock. Pop rock. Punk rock. Alternative rock. Goth rock. Blues rock. Southern rock. Surfer rock. Skater rock. Country rock. Ugh

To quote Billy Joel, its still rock n roll to me.

Brian, I am with you on that (sort of).

Even a devoted metalhead like myself feels that that "sub-divisions" are getting a tad silly. We're not even having sub-divisions of a genre; we're having sub-divisions of sub-divisions!

Over breakfast (each day), I fully expect to read that thrash metal, a subgenre of extreme metal, has "sub-divided" into 6 or 7 sub-divisions. 

What's a guy to do, eh?

My brother passes Powerplay magazine to me when he`s
read it, the album reviews have the genre noted, often
it`s something like "Symphonic, Folk, Death Metal" which
often raises a titter from me, especially when the group
photo is of a band of beardy viking types in white/black
ghoulish face paint!
