I mean seriously. YUCK!
At this point, I feel obligated to point out that some more substantive rock star of the period -- I'm pretty sure it was Tom Petty -- was asked, as the 80s dawned, what he thought had been worthwhile about the music of the 70s. His terse and accurate response: "Punk, Springsteen, Steely Dan."
And who can argue with that? But noooo -- we had to suffer please-shove-ice-picks-in-my-ears albums like that Frampton shit.
The noxious vinyl extrusion of which Mike Myers so aptly obsserved in Wayne's World: "Everybody in the world has Frampton Comes Alive. If you lived in the suburbs you were issued it. It came in the mail with samples of Tide."
Okay, perhaps I exaggerate.
No, I don't, actually.
In any case, now to business. To wit:
...and the most annoying 70s record or performer(s) that became gynormous cultural artifacts is/are...?
And have a great weekend, everybody!!!
