Top 10 Music Artists Where You Should Check Out Their Old Stuff FirstI'm talking about great and unique music artists from the past who started off good at first, but then got worse and worse as they went along. They sold out. So this is just a way of saying that you should check out their old stuff (their old songs, their old albums) first to know them better. Stay away from their modern stuff. If you check out their modern styff frist, then that's where you'll be really disapointed and loose all interest in these artists.
So I'm gonna repeat this again. If you are unfamiliar with these people and you want to know them, check out their old stuff first. Not their new stuff. Their old stuff will let you know them better and will have you get into them more. Their new stuff will probably make you loose all interest in them.
