Thank you for the information.
Thank you for information Caty, but I am sorry I am going to have to put in my 2 cents worth here.

If you look into today's market, and down through the history of "popular" music, you will find influences from all over the world, and even discover many of what is known as "American Music" was actually influenced by other styles and concepts from all parts of this great world.
Just a couple of quick examples:
If it weren't for the UK we wouldn't have The Beatles, Led Zepplin, Queen, et al. You can thank Canada (or hate Canada) for bringing the music industry the likes of Nickelback, Nelly Furtado, Avril Lavigne and Finger Eleven (just to name a few of today's top charting artists). I could go on and on here.
My only advice to you would be to educate yourself on not just "American" music, but "world" music, and discover all that the "wonderful world of music" has given us.
Why did you take this seriously? They posted once and will probably never come back.
