I sent that email yesterday.  I sent one today about the garbage collection being caused by the Love Boat.  Nice to know that Tony is starting to recognize me.  ;D

You heard the order: Death to Vanna White, and death to Pat Sajak.  Let's make it happen, people...

I keed, I keed.  Don't come arrest me...

Who is Josh Cromwell? He must join this collective, especially if he has nothing to do.
I got a feeling he would be a rebel.  I heard he is a big post padder

The style of her music isn't anything new.  She is an average artist that has above average drug habits. 

This was your quote

"could be one of the most influential people in music in this generation"

Defend yourself.
Name one original artistin the past 20 years?

Just because she isnt original, doesnt mean she's not influential...

ONe listen to artists like Adele, Lily Allen, and Kate Nash will show that WInehouse has already been influential...
I think you can only look at how influential an artist is with the passage of time.  all these artists came out at the same time.

plus, my original point is that since everyone is on their own XM channel, how influential can an artist be today outside their own niche audience?

I sent two short ones in late.  I think I'll need to start listening to the 3wt feed online...the XM delay is killing my e-mail chances.

20 years.  So since 1988?  Michael Jackson?

Amy Winehouse is not going to rank on anyone's top 500 list for most influential artists in any generation.

"all these artists came out at the same time"

Which furthers the ludicrousy of Bopper's post.  That makes them either copycats, or artists that have the same influences.

Your right, Michael Jackson made his debut in 1991 with "Black or White"... in the words of a philosopher I once knew: urine idiot.

I don't know the dates of MJ's discography. I apologize.  When was Thriller released?  Mid 80s?

Nirvana

original?  not terribly, but vastly different than the spandex rock that had infected the late '80s.  Influential? Yes

But how much influence did all the other Seattle bands have on Nirvana before they exploded with Nevermind?  And I'm asking this as an actual question, because I don't know much history of the grunge scene...

Nirvana certainly wasnt the first "grunge rock band" they just became the most popular... search Sub Pop records sometime... and there was a great documentary that was on IFC for a while about the birth of the grunge scene in seattle... but the title eludes me.

I don't know either. Of course Nirvana had influences.  This wasnt' the argument.  Is was "most influential".

That would be Nirvana for the grunge scene, or Pearl Jam.
