well, then should we include all the great soul groups? all the great rap groups?
: i think the big difference is that when you talk about bands, you do not account for the difference in styles between "black" and "white" music. generally speaking, black artists and musicians simply do not play the type of music where bands are commonplace, i.e. rock music. though there are many great black groups, meaning just singers. of course, you already know this, so why not take it into account?
this is kinda like me making a thread called "blacks are better rappers/whites are better country musicians".
