Well, considering that I was out dancing the other night to Goth and Industrial music, it isn't so much that my tastes are conservative as that when I'm at the mudcat, I'm focusing on the corner of my eclectic heart that loves traditional music. I think that an interviewer who never got a chance before to ask about a favorite album, no matter how old it is might be tempted to get distracted, too. [grin]
Some people have very successful careers doing nothing new, and others get rich enough to do what they love regardless, and not worry. Both are great, as far as I'm concerned. Isn't it Cher who's just done an album called "Not Commercial" and is having to market it over the web because none of the labels would touch it?
