What is the "critcal age" of an originals band? What I mean is, look at the BIG, and I mean BIG BIG successes and what ages they were when they were introduced to the public for mass consumer consumption: The Stones, The Beatles, U2, Led Zep, VH, Hendrix, The Who... I'm no historian, but is late teens and early to mid-twenties the "optimal" time to have an originals band peak for introduction to the public? This post is an off-shoot of an idea from another thread post. Thoughts? I'm certain there are plenty of exceptions, but I also want to consider/discuss TODAY'S market. I mean, KISS wore make-up because they were ugly, pre-internet. Gorillaz released stuff without showing the members. Does age and looks matter? I'm leaning toward no. Marketing saavy could do wonders these days.
