What is a band that you dearly love (or even just kinda like) that you are amazed got big. I'm not talking bands you hate, that's too easy. What is something that you listen to that you are amazed that a lot of people get?
I can think of two off the top of my head.
Jethro Tull. Yeah, here is a formula for stadium stardom. The lead singer plays flute and acoustic guitar. Odd time signatures. Intelligent lyrics. How did they sell out stadiums in the 70s? I'm glad they did, I saw them a half dozen times or more. But really ... how did that happen?
Supertramp. The two main instruments are electric piano and clarinet. I don't really need to say more . They sold millions.
