Thank you.

does it surprise you he started a pro-creed thread?
I didn't start a pro-Creed thread I just wanted some info about it, I REALLY didn't know that people in this forum hate so vehemently Creed.
Sorry, I' m new here. Being a U2 fan I considered Feedback as the natural place where to talk with american guys even about other artists.
The whole Europe Vs America thing is just an angry reaction to some posts and I apologize for it.
I love America and think that it creates a lot of wonderful music like Smashing Pumpkins, the first Pearl Jam (ten), Metallica (own all its albums 'till the black one), Puddle of Mudd (Blurry is an amazing song) and many others.
Sorry again I don't want to argue with people that love my favourite band ever

Well there is some fact to the better music argument. THe US record instustry is chokingly monopolized while the Britush music industry while not free of big corperate interest has way more labels than the US. Basically if you don't get on a big label in the US by convincing them of your marketablity you become an indie band and maybe if you're really lucky you're music will find a big enough audience that you'll get noticed by a major label. The UK'
s music industry is more open so there's a better chance that bands will get support to get out into the larger market. There's still corperate manufactured pop, but it doean' dominate the air waves quite as much. It's still there, I've seen enough shite win awards at the Brits to know that.

no worries. I am not here to fight either. I just hate competition. No country is better than another musically. We are all different and that's what makes life great.
To each his own. You may like Creed all you want.

I'm sorry. I'm just very biased when it comes to European music. Grew up listening to it and was never able to shake it off. That's not to say American music entirely sucks. I just prefer Euro music, that's all.

Thanks Angel, you are really right
All that matters in music is beauty and not the country of origin
