I'm not sure what you don't understand?

 

Bands that stay around a long time tend to change there style. They lose their original fan base.... the fan base that made them... the fan base that got them to fame and a lucrative recording contract. That said, I would also sell out to more main stream, radio friendly music/style for killer money. The two bands I gave examples of did exactly that.

I'm not talking about bands that struggle for years. Aerosmith comes to mind. They found a new fan base as they slowly changed. Rush did the same thing. Neither band is doing what made them big in the first place.... they are still great bands, but their original fan bases don't care for the new direction.
I guarantee I'd sell out for the money too!
I'm a big Rush fan so obviously biased. But I offer that Rush's style constantly evolved because they were always growing and changing as musicians. They said many times they could have made another Moving Pictures, but why? They had already done that and wanted to explore the next idea. I didn't love all of their early concept work, and I didn't necessarily love the synth phase, but looking back I appreciate that they were always willing to pursue what they were interested in. That's the opposite of selling out imo

I agree. I'm a huge Rush fan. They evolved and really just kept getting better as musicians, but They lost me after 2112. Moving Pictures was the beginning of the end for me as a Rush fan. Rush is kind of an anomaly to me. I'll give a better example of a band that "sold out".

I'm not a Punk fan at all, but.... Green Day is an example of a band that went total mainstream and abandoned their fans for fortune and fame. It worked for them, but it sucks for their original fans. Maybe selling out is the wrong term, but I guarantee that that his how the fans see it.

 

In a way, I'm very happy Zeppelin didn't continue, because In Through the Out Door was a huge pile of s***. To put that out after Presence was just unbelievable to their long time, loyal fans. They were heading down the road to "selling out" for lack of a better term. Many bands do it.... and it always disappoints their long time fan bases.

I've been kicking around Mudvayne's LD 50 album the past few days.  Had honestly forgotten how great that album was top to bottom.  I agree on some of the others re: selling out.  Most bands I caught on to early in their careers, I evolved with them in a lot of ways, but I do miss the music that made me like them in the first place.  There are others though that I like better as they've grown and matured in their writing, A7X being one of them.  But when it comes to making money and supporting a family, it would be awful hard not to do the same.

And of course, If I'm going to listen to Alex songs, I can't leave out THE guitar player... Zal Cleminson.

I lost a very good friend 6 years ago to a heroin overdose. He made me promise to play this at his funeral if he passed before I did. I honored his request.... and swore I'd never listen to it again. I don't know why I punched it up, but here it is.

I found this band via Spotify maybe a month or so ago and I am SO HOOKED. They haven't released an album in a number of years and don't appear to have played any gigs since 2017 which is a shame.

Ran across a couple of "oldies" that I can't seem to get out of my head...

I remember going to the roller rink in the 70's and this always seemed to be on loop.

Another classic one, but this time from the 80's...

Vocals are impressive as it the guitar...
