Barred Bands

September 28, 1986

The real reason bands like Billy & the Beaters, Jack Mack & the Heart Attack and other bands of equal caliber are ignored by the record companies is so simple and stupid that nobody wants to admit it ("Bar Bands Make the Rounds," by Don Snowden, Sept. 21):

No matter that the type of music played by these bands is very popular all over the country in almost every bar in the country, the simple truth is the people who hold the power at the record labels just don't like this kind of music. They wouldn't buy it, and are under the false impression that others won't buy it.

Hasn't anyone learned anything from the success of Huey Lewis & the News?
