Do you like when musicians or bands come back after a long hiatus or not?


Do you think a long hiatus (more than five years) hurts an artist coming back into music or does it help them? This week, we've had a total of three major announcements of comebacks- David Bowie, Destiny's Child, and Justin Timberlake. All haven't put out albums for the better part of a decade, however there is alot of buzz surrounding them. As a fan, do you prefer artists to come out every year or so or to wait longer for their music?

    I agree- I think the Rolling Stones should stop but I don't think they could. And I definitely agree about the Beatles but I think had they all remained alive, it still may not have worked. Thanks so much for answering the question.

    Efficient Admin,

    Funny response. Unfortunately, I immediately thought of Courtney Love when you said that :).

    Thanks Sunshine! I think you have a point- I like to see artists do new things and come back strong. What you said about Rob Thomas and Matchbox 20 applies to Gwen and No Doubt. I'm glad to see them going strong and making music on their own terms.

    You have a great point msLarayne- they never really faded completely. And I think Maxwell's a great example. Thanks for answering!

    Interesting perspective and you have great points. I think older artists nowadays have to find a creative way to connect to social media because that's where people find music. Just look at Justin Bieber- he pretty much owes his career to YouTube.

    I didn't know that about The Eagles but that's funny. I agree-if they made a lasting impact, I don't think time does anything but make fans appreciate them more.
