It's a shame that the country that gave us the Stones, Led Zep, The Beatles, Queen, Elton, Ozzy and many more age defining rockers has only a fistful of bad crap to give us these days.
i couldnt agree more brittish music is piss poor. However it still isnt nice to watch your band flop in the charts.

worded absolutely perfectly...

then again the US market still isn't much better, despite being better than the UK... sorry the market is good in that bands can easily tour there such as scorpions who can't here in uk, but the charts are still dominated by crap...

but then there's nothing good being produced to challenge it which stands ahead of it...

I'd like to defend the UK here......but I can't

The charts is dominated by boy bands / pop idols & Daniel Sodding Bedingfield.

It's still a fact you can't deny that Bon Jovi and the Stones will make the most money touring this year. Just go to bonjovi.com and check out the tour dates - BJ will be touring pretty much every other day for the next few months. The only competition to both bands can be the Aerosmith / Kiss tour later this year but it won't be because that starts in the fall.

I'm afraid we in the UK have to take the credit. It all started with Nasty nigel & Hearsay

Bounce could do much better on charts. If they did not release "EVERYDAY" as a single. It is the biggest mistake ever. That song is not even good. And the second single "Misunderstood"..?? Whar were they thinking.?? Bounce is a great album. And far better than Crush. But Crush did great on charts cause they released "Its my life" first. Everyday is the worst song in Bounce and they released it as a single. THAT WAS JUST WRONG.. and thats not enough..cause second single was "Misunderstood.. and i heard third is "ALL ABOUT LOVING YOU"...??? Band needs to use their heads cause BOUNCE can do alot better if they realese better singles ...like Hook me up., the distance or Bounce.

Oh right. Forgot about that but not sure if that was before or at the same time as popstars, spent my time trying to avoid them both.
