    Do you think that bands should play thier own instuments?

    My mum and dad have always said that bands are superfical and untalented if they don't have any musical talent. Do you think thats true? What if they are just picked up on for their voice?

    I think that its the music that matters. Regardless of whether they play instruments or not, if the music is good, then there shouldn't be a problem with it.

    lol, yer I suppose some bands don't really suit it.

    Well there's a lot of them about milking the market for all its worth with arguably very little talent. I mentioned Sinatra because arguably he was just a singer, but nobody complained about his lack of talent.

    Yer but he had a majorly good voice.

    A band should only be judged on their music. They aren't better or worse if they can or cannot play instruments.

    I agree although I like "jump in" by girls aloud and some of westlife's songs aren't that bad, no the worst neway

    Exactly.
    Those bands aren't bad because they don't play their own instruments.
    They are bad because their music sounds awful!

    Being able to sing,is a great enough talent as it is...and is far from superficial. The other stuff, eg song writing, dancing & playing instruments are also great talents but not everyone can do them all together or even more than one. I say use what you've got!! Im sure if you made a bit of money out of it, your parents would soon shut up!
