Frustrated

You got the Knack a long time ago, but Doug Fieger thinks you need it again

"It's hard to look at what's going on in our society today and not get discouraged, but I like to think that the better angels of our beings will win in the end, and that the importance of a pop band or a pop record will take its proper place. I think of being an entertainer as a high calling. For that 15 minutes that your record's on or that hour and a half you're on stage, you are taking someone out of their daily life and moving them in some way and giving them enjoyment, and that's a high calling. But it's no higher calling than a plumber when you have a leaky faucet and need your faucet fixed. You don't want a pop star. You want a plumber. Society just places more importance on pop stars, and the people who do that take on these mantles are absolutely ridiculous. I am suspect of anyone who would want to treat me that way--good or bad. If you don't like our music, don't listen to it. It's pretty simple.
