Now who would I see...easy...notice all the yellow highlighted ones.
Who would I be intrigued by? Notice the green highlights.

There are probably others worth listening to, but I don't know enough about them to highlight one way or the other, namely some in Moscow and Rome.

As you know, I will not be watching or listening...but I object to it taking over BBC1, BBC Radio 1 & 2, I think it is on Smooth FM as well. I will have to find something else to watch. Incidentally, how come there aren't many rock bands? Is it not commercial enough? I thought there were thousands of rock / metal supporters out there like me? Oh well, there goes the planet.
