       I'd watch this.
my face your, Mar 27 2003

       yes, but you are rather - umm sad?

       One man bands used to be a staple on TV talent shows. Or least the one I watched one time when I was a kid.

       Harsh, po. Harsh but fair.

       This is just the thing. Sure American Idols can tousle their hair and smile for the cameras, but give them an accordian, a harmonica in a neck holder and put cymbals between their knees and let them entertain!

       For entertainment purposes.

       No sequencers allowed?

       This inspires me to propose the production of Drum Idol, where the next Ringo Starra and Keith Moons get to show off their chops to a panel of judges.

       I'm pretty sure anyone in a one-man-band could never be my idol.
