Defending The Indefensible (Creed)
Here's my nomination for most worthless piece of music journalism of the year: writer uses a Wilco analogy to defend Creed (ugh) in an article for American Airlines in-flight magazine.

god bless the stones and chuck berry - that being said, none of them, shall we gently say, have a wealth of new material - therefore they better be playing the old songs. there are established artists (say, neil young) who doesn't play his "hits", but rather focuses on his new material. not coincidentally, these are the more vital artists.
you're right, the guys an idiot (but i did like the line that hating a rock band for showing up drunk is like hating a cat for having whiskers)
I agree on all points. What slays me about concert fans are the ones that expect a note-for-note representation of every song. If that were me, I'd just stay home, where the beer is cheaper.
