OK. I find it interesting you quote me while having a go at someone else, but what the hell? I`ll bite.

Feeder embody everything that`s wrong with rock because they make formulaic, by-the-numbers pop shite that teenagers and those who want to appear "cool" but don`t want to like harder stuff like Marilyn Manson, System of a Down, and so on. "Dad-Rock", if you will.

Their songs are pretty much the same, radio-friendly popbollocks that is neither challenging nor innovative, and quite frankly that is remarkable for a genre like rock which prides itself on innovation and experimental music.

And to say they haven`t used Jon Lee`s death to sell records may not be right, but it`s certainly influenced  their work, it`s been all angsty ballads after that happened, so while it may not have been a concious decision, but it`s certainly worked out that way. You certainly seem to think that because their drummer committed suicide they`re exempt from criticism.

Oh, and for the record? Being a nice bloke (which I have no doubt Grant Nicholas is) doesn`t mean that you`re able to make good music.

No I was simply asking what you meant by your quote, I didn't aim the other thing at you, I was aiming it at whoever said it.

however you seem to have got the wrong end of the stick with quite a few of my points. I didn't say that they are exempt from critisism because of Jon Lee's suicide, nor did I say that just because Grant is a nice bloke means he can make great music. What I did say is that I don't believe the thought crossed his mind that he could cash in on the situation. I agree completely that their music has been influenced by the suicide, but as I said before most rock musicians/singers feed of their emotions and divert that energy into their music, that's what makes it passionate.

If you don't like Feeder's music then fair play, slag that off for being dull, everyone has their own opinion.
