In response to devildavid's comment:
Color me asexual too. When it comes to music, I use my ears. Period. Don't give a crap what anyone looks like. Doesn't turn me on or off to their music. I'm a damned purist to the extreme. Now if a performer I like also pleases my eyes, I won't complain. But I absolutely don't like anyone based solely on physical attraction.
This thread's a bit stale now, but the "asexual" comment is as ignorant as it is laughable, isn't it? I'm about as far from being an "asexual" prude as possible, I'd guess...but what sort of perv would think about such an issue anyway?
Do I care about Hermann Hesse, or Picasso, or Dali, or Defoe, or Peckinpah, or Parker's physical appearance? Of course not.
Do I think that Poison Ivy Rorschach (Cramps) is the most physically attractive women in history? I do.
Is that why I admire her so much and consider her a great role model for my daughters? Absolutely not.
Even today, how many mixed gender bands have a female guitarist? Sure, let the little ladies have a go at the 4-string bass, etc.
Ivy is a quality git player, was a truly joint composer (maybe more?) with the late, great Lux, managed the band, produced much of their music.....the driving force behind one of the most important, influential underground bands ever.
Asexual issue: Cramps were by far, IMO, the most sexually exciting band I've ever seen. Butthole Surfers' topless Go Go dancers? Little boys' toys. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Heygg3esSg
