phaeton Posted May 17, 2004 Share Posted May 17, 2004 Ok, so instead of the "Acts That Should NOT Retire" thread, how about this one? We named a few in the "Acts That Should Retire" that should go out to pasture. But why? What makes an act no longer relevant? 1) Fan base dissapears or dies? 2) An act that was previously pioneering but is no longer such the case? 3) An act that fits into a genre that is no longer "popular". Folk music, maybe? Disco? Skiffle? 4) An act that puts out 100 albums over the course of 30 years that all sound like their first one? 5) An act that puts out 100 albums over the course of 30 years that don't sound anything alike? 6) An act that runs out of things to write about, so they write stupid songs with horrible rhyming dictionary lyrics? 7) Acts that return each year with a new gimmick, or rely on old tired gimmicks from the past? (When they are possibly just lamenting the loss of the spotlight and trying to regain it)? 8) Acts that "Sell Out" or make it apparent that they're just continuing on to make money (whether they need it or not)? 9) Acts that do several "Farewell" tours? 10) ???? 11) Profit!!! What do you folks think? What are the criterium for hangin' it up? C'mon, no need to bicker, we can have fun with this Dr. Seuss: The Original White Rapper . WWND?
