Gawd, forgot about him, yes up there with Sheeran.
My brother-in-law has always liked bland music - the Carpenters, Rumor, James Galway (!) but it's even worse now, he likes someone called John Legend and even went to see him in Glasgow. The music is so weak and wishy-washy, I'm surprised it makes its way out of the speakers. DearJesus !
Nice story mate...don't mind the Carpenters tbh, Karen C had an amazing voice, but Rumer is just a KC rip off. Generally though I'm a 70's rock/prog/punk fan, proper music imo :D ...I currently have over 600 cd's and I reckon 90% are 70's bands, and most of those are albums I had on vinyl back in the day.
Yeah, the Carpenters had their moments. I liked Calling Occupants Of Interplanetary Craft which was quite far out for them, but not as good as the original. Goodbye To Love was good with the fuzzy guitar solo at the end played over the decending chords and vocal chorus. Predictably they were two my brother in law didn't like.

Pub bands mostly....I never really had the stickability to overcome all the disappointments that come with playing in bands. I preferred to be down the pub boozing with my mates. Then......I got married !

Never listen to The Carpenters but Karen's voice would be in the top ten best ever recorded voices along with Nat King Cole and Ella Fitzgerald who I don't listen to either!

I agree. There have been singers that other singers aspire to sound like, but nobody has ever sounded like Ella.

Damn right, a truly amazing clarity to Ella's voice. When I used to read Blues and Soul in the 80's I never understood why she was featured so much and people fighting to get tickets to see her. I was a foolish young man because I fully understand it now.
