    That's a good picture. You should make it your Avatar.

    (Why should I be the only one to go blind?):p

    Kidding, of course.

    Or as I said elsewhere : Tenacious D. You guys look quite similar to them in the "Tribute" video and they are all over MTV!! :D

    Not really pretty, but once they were in the spotlight all the ladies wanted them.

    Beauty is in the eye of the charts.....

    In my experience playing and attending concerts; I've found that the bands I've found most appealling arn't very pretty. What catches my attention are, in chronological order.

    Stage presents- I misspelled it on purpose. That means paying as much attention to them as your fretboard (which you're not doing in the photo); when a band makes it clear that they appreciate the fans, it makes me feel warm inside. The Ramones, hate'em or love'em, were great at this. They never did any guitar humping (guitarist facing guitarist), they faced the audience at all times as if the sound was coming out the guitars like a firehose.

    Hooks-Hey, your music may be the most complex and technically adept in the world; but if it doesn't make me stomp, make me lip-synch, or even give me the vapors, I'm outta there.

    Content-Ok, your music made me move, but does it make me think? Even if you can make me think the mundane"hey yeah, sex is fun", it's better than a pointless jazz or techno song that is all packaging.

    Solidity-well yeah...I guess you have to be together also. Just don't screw up too much.

    Anyways, looks are not in there. and keep in mind that I play punk music, so my standards may not apply to you.
     
  14. Tool is a very ugly band, and they've had some success. . .:)
     
  15. how has noone mentioned Papa Roach as an ugly band?! those guys are the ugliest bunch of fools i've ever seen, and their new CD really bites compared to the first...

    and you kinda look like Stainds' singer with glasses
