I said SOME of us. But hey, you'll conquer every friggin post I write, I guess you just hate my guts. Whatever.

You say that SARA was a commercial single? Come on. That album was carried by being different. The whole mac was. Not only lindsey.

BTW, I just write my thoughts on how Lindsey could broaden his audience in MY opinion. I'm not saying I'm right, I just say that quirkiness can sell. White stripes prove that.

Did they even like the other stuff on Tusk? Maybe at first they admired Lindsey for his bold move, but then the novelty wore off.
Tusk the single definitely wasn't a big hit just because of Rumours.
Hardly any of the Rumours songs did well in Britain, but Tusk was their biggest single here after Albatross because it was quirky and different.

It still surprises me that people are disappointed that Lindsey isn't trying to be more commercial. Like Mari said, I'd much prefer to hear the music he wants to make rather than the music he thinks everyone wants him to make. I say, stay true to yourself Lindsey!

I absolutely agree. It was great three or four years ago but I find it's just got over-saturated now... a few decent individual songs that stand out but the music all sounds the same, the voices and melodies.

I doubt Lindsey would ever be accepted by the "masses" whether he changed his style or not -- and his age is the difficulty. Certainly he's not too old to be doing what he's doing, I definitely don't think that, but to "introduce" him would require an amount of focus on image as well as the music, that's simply how it is.
But for people of my generation who are already tuned into classic rock type thing that Lindsey's best known for, there's no doubt that he's popular.

Ding ding ding ding! You're right on the money, honey.

He's had his superstar - hellaciously huge mega star - days. Why some fans feel a need for that to happen again is beyond me.

That's why we all like him anyway. LB makes the music he wants to make.

Let's just hope that he keeps doing what he wants, and let's hope that he does it fast as well. I want as much as possible

I mean I always think of the Killers as the ones who are derivative of the 80s. . . ?

in my view, all synth music is pretty much derivative of the 80s, even though it was around before then.

the neo-elektro-punk-pop thing that all those groups have going on... it's just way too much gloss (and eyeliner) and it needs to go away. lindsey doesn't need to appeal to that crowd to prove himself in any way.
