In response to ZILLAGOD's comment:
For example, I had mentioned on The Cramps related thread that I bought a CD by strictly on their appearance. Because I thought,sexual, sci-fi, horror movie themes, sexy chick guitar player, weird names, ...how can I go wrong here?
Totally cracking up. Nice job. Glad someone has a sense of humor around here, and knows how to lighten up. =)
Gee, I think some people are taking this thread waaaaay too seriously. The OP commented on a singer whose music he doesn't even know --- that he just appreciates the person as eye candy. What's wrong with that? Even if you did get drawn into a band b/c one or more of the musicians were or are hot, what's wrong with that? That's part of the world of entertainment. Wow, time to lighten up.
As for buying a CD b/c of the cover, I can completely relate. I have (and would continue to) buy any CD by Loreena McKennitt without ever hearing the CD because the cover art is so astonishing, each and every time. I remember buying "Grace" (Jeff Buckley) based on the cover of the CD, even though I'd only heard one song; the cover photo was enough.
The OP stated that the performers eye appeal made you like the musicmore than you would.
"Name a band or artist you like, more so because someone in it, in particular the leader is hot and it just lures you in, making you like the music a lot more than you normally would for that genre"
I probably shouldn't have participated here because it really hasn't happened for me. I only joined in after seeing Sonics post and the OP's response to that. If this was purely about eye candy, I could list a bunch of them. But it was also related to enjoying music you might not usually. I surely would admit that. No big deal. I'm not opposed to it. Sometimes an honest opinion can appear humorless.
No problem, you're right re: the intent, and I'm the one who loosened up the intent b/c I didn't take it seriously. With the Martina McBride comment (he does not even know any of her songs), Russ(the OP) put a different spin on the thread himself.
If this were about athletes, my list would be pretty hefty. I have gotten interested (and more interested) in sports b/c some athletes have such eye candy appeal. Frankly, when Tom Brady was a bit younger and "all that" around here, I not only read a book he said he had read (!), I also remembered what music he liked, after reading about it in an interview.
I loved Bronson Arroyo when he was on the Red Sox, and was crushed when he was traded. I thought that was an unforgivable mistake. :D
