30 Why do bands always look so gloomy?

Hurray for Grand Funk Railyard – what a nice change to see the lineup all smiling! Is it because they are veterans, they have made it and can relax?

Why, I wonder, is it imperative for all young band members to wear such grim faces. Is it that they need to be taken ‘seriously’?

Maybe it is because I am an oldie, myself, that the somber and even at times menacing looks staring out from publicity photos don’t make me want to hear their music. I’m put off by their deadpan stares.

Give us a smile, just once in a while, lads (and occasionally gals, though they usually look happier). I’m sure your music isn’t all that bad.
