In what I’m hoping will be a very interactive weekly segment, I will mention some person(s) that I don’t understand why they are so popular. My goal is not to rip, but to get some insight on why the pop culture phenomenom exists for these “celebrities”.
I chose Dave Matthews to begin the list, as I think a lot of people who attend his concerts I would like personally. I don’t really hate the guy and think that his song “Crash” is a great erotic tune, even though it has been played into the ground by radio. My basic problem is that I can’t figure out why he sells out arenas, despite being such a quirky voiced dude of moderate song writing ability. How is this guy the master of unlocking Patchouli’s* box? (*Patchouli is an oil worn by hippie chicks. Many of these women are big fans of South Africa’s biggest musical export.)
If you are a fan of Dave, explain why my feelings are wrong. If not, please be as descriptive in what you don’t like about the guy. I will weigh-in with greater detail about DMB later on in the commentary area.
