It wasn't that he was a bad performer, it's that I do not appreciate the style of music he was representing. The Creed / Nickelback, growly, grunge rock genre is my least favorite of all genres of music. Music like that should've stayed in the 90s, and we certainly don't need to be promoting new performers to sing in a style that should've disappeared 10 years ago. That's just my opinion, but it does explain my extreme dislike for Chris Daughtry.
But, alas, his CD singles are getting some airtime these days, and it's time for me to eat my hat. I thought it would suck. I thought it would be band driven and would not represent his vocal talent well at all.
And I was wrong.
It's actually pretty good. I don't buy CDs these days, so I won't be buying it, but I do listen in when his songs come on the radio. And I actually enjoy it.
Sorry, Chris, for the low expectations. Thank your producer for doing you many huge favors. And thank the public for forgiving you for this:
i wonder what would happen if good music was played over the radio waves in place of the pop nauseum?
We pretentious musician types would hate life and have nothing to listen to. We'd start listening to Red Hot Chili Peppers and (it pleases me that I'm having such a hard time thinking of a really poppy kinda group to list here, but you get the idea) out of a lack of things to be pretentious about! :)
Just my idea
