It's true...he thought they were very overrated.
I had this theory I talked out with him regarding the popularity of acts like The Beach Boys, The Four Seasons, etc. in the US vs. the British Invasion (mainly the lack of a doo wop/vocal group tradition in the UK leading to more experimentation there as opposed to here where the BB's & 4S were kinda morphed from that whole 50's vocal genre).
I miss the guy really. They were great discussions that never got mean spirited or anything because you could reason with him. It was a lot like sitting around talking about things over a few beers...none of that internet warrior persona crap ever.
