Can we please get back on this topic. Not that this is a very positive topic to begin with.

Personally, I'd always heard that Tori Amos fans were some of the most obsessive and that at shows you could hear a pin drop during a song. Um, yeah. The obsessive part was true but the pin drop part couldn't be further from the truth. The crowd wouldn't shut up. I did some looking and this seems to be the case for her concerts everywhere. Where this stereotype came from is beyond me.

I will go out on a limb and say that not all fans of Streisand are gay men.

There. And we're back on topic.

Hey, here's a positive -- Church fans are known to have absolutely impeccable musical taste. And it true!

...of course some of them (not me ) are also batshit crazy, but you can't have everything.

Stereotype:

Springsteen fans are all obsessive nuts.

There are a lot of negative stereotypes that I've run into involving people who listen to modern pop country music. They get a bad rap. I love a lot of that stuff.

I hate it when I meet somebody or hear somebody who says "I listen to everything except Country"

There's too many of those people around, and they need to open their minds up a little bit.

60's and 70's country is awesome. Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings, Johnny Cash, Kris Kristofferson... And, of course, the early greats like Patsy Cline, Tammy Wynette, and Hank Williams.

I have friends in the country music business and have enjoyed some free concerts like The Judds. I like a lot of alternative country stuff but martha & I were just talking about how country music singers can SING.

But in terms of more modern country pop, I used to have a soft spot for ol' Garth.

True, but at least I'm not supporting the post-Garth Brooks world of country. It's not that he's a bad artist in particular, but the copycats that followed are much worse.

What if I've given country a very fair shake, and, well, still do not like it? Can I then say that I don't listen to it? Or do I need to keep that a secret?

I'm just kidding, but seriously, there was once a country infomercial where the announcer listed the names in almost the SAME exact order. (I don't know WHY I remember that, probably for the same reason I can tell you the order of songs on Buzz Ballads )
