Adele's awesome. I'm not a vocal expert so I have no idea where she would be on this list (assuming she makes it at all), but I fucking love her voice.
Yeh, she is extremely talented and has had a massive impact in such a small period of time.
I just don't buy into alot of this 'so and so is a rock artist stuff'.
Of course I understand that rock music has evolved in various different forms, but pretty much everything that isn't opera seems to be considered rock by DDD.
Surely it defeats the object to have all music called the same thing? Surely that's like calling everyone on earth the same thing just because they originate from the same place. Surely the idea of different classifications seperates those artists who sound different, or represent different ideas?
Read my post again and again until YOU get it. The article discusses hoW people generally disregard music for racial or preferential reasons. I'm not doing that. White artists that took the rock framework still called their music rock. Adele does not, and has never referred to herself as a rock singer.
The logic that everyone falls under the same blanket that was influenced by the same thing is ridiculous. It's as foolish as calling every book science fiction because EVERYTHING in existence can be traced back to sciencehttp://www.digitaldreamdoor.com/pages/w ... -rock.html
Read this article again and again until you get it. It's simple. Not everything is being called rock.
Anyway - how the hell is Adele even a problem artist for you? I understand when people don't get why rap is rock, that concept may seem alien to them. But Adele? What is the issue there?
