Ok....fine.... So, let me ask you all this, since many are getting defensive. What do you want to see happen out of this for Firewind? I think we are all in agreement that we are happy for Gus, in that he will gain some exposure as a talented guitarist. Also, he will benefit financially, which is more than well deserved. Let's discuss Firewind specifically. Is anyone hoping for mass mainstream acceptance? Or, simply, just hoping that Firewind could gain some recognition so they could tour more regularly, sell more CDs, etc..... I hate to use the DragonForce example here, but I have to...... I have said it before. It wasn't even 5 years ago when DF were on MANY people's wishlist for Prog Power. They made very little change to their sound. In all honesty, I think their newest is FAR superior to Inhuman Rampage. Their success though has also lost them many fans, who I think have no reason to no longer be a fan, considering they haven't compromised their musicianship at all. So, what I am getting at here is, if Firewind blows up by some chance, would you still be a fan?
