I'm washing my ears out right now.
I think we should give respect to the ABBA money!
They have a great system there for musicians where the government invests in it's artists. I think it's a great thing they don't starve their artists and they re-invest in their people like that. And the groups give back in return, Abba, Roxette, Ace Of Base, Entombed, At the Gates, Meshuggah, Opeth, Union Carbide Productions, Refused....all successful internationally, if not legendary and well remembered groups.
If you are in a band with your mom, your band sucks. :)

Metallica, Manowar, Anthrax & Overkill are all natures response to New Jersey
