    I don't think it's any big secret that his business skills outweigh his musical skills since he ran Def Jam for a time.

    I remember seeing an interview with some old rock star (I think it was one of the Eagles) who said that every band eventually becomes a tribute band to themselves.

    How completely ironic.

    This is especially true considering how many old bands on tour only have one or two original members.

    Case in point - The Little River Band. Which these days consists of the drummer (who, to the best of my knowledge, didn't sing or write any of their songs, but simply pulled the sleazy move of registering the band name under his own name) and a bunch of hired hands.

    As were the Beastie Boys.

    Punk is the best starting point for any garage band since it doesn't require any chops.

    That's not entirely accurate. Their first album was a mix of metal, punk, funk and soul, but their second album was mostly alt metal with the pop song Fly you're talking about. Almost nobody knows their first one and IMO best album. I would put them on this list...I liked their first two, maybe three albums, and then it's just downhill.

    Second Weezer. WTF, man. It's like they forgot how to write fun songs that weren't bland. Let's see...Korn. 1 was great, 2 was good, 3 was EXCELLENT, and it's been a hot mess of shit ever since except maybe Untouchables which I enjoyed half of. Disturbed had an interesting debut and then 4 albums of the same song ever since. Godsmack, same deal. Started off interesting and then just got dull and generic.

    Most of the mainstream thrash guys to an extent, but instead of just a drop off, most had an artistic peak and then wavering ups and downs..Metallica, Megadeth, Anthrax, Slayer, Pantera.

    Hmm..honestly, pretty much every rock band I can think of off the top of my head at some points hits their creative/artistic/popular peak and then just runs out of steam, usually around the time they either get too drugged out of their minds they don't know what they're doing or when they sell out. Even the greats have a turning point... Led Zep, the Stones, etc.

    There is a ton of stuff that factors into those things i personally feel like The Stones are still making great music every band has a high point wither it's an album or one song.
    hell even the Beatles were starting to lose steam towards the end.
