My friend Pat and I have begun an interesting discussion. I believe it began when discussing Bruce Springsteen's The Rising. I mentioned that I loved that album, and that it might be my favorite Springsteen album. Pat concurred. I mentioned, though, that the critics liked Bruce much more than I did. I said I respect him more than I like him.
Pat mentioned that he respects Jimi Hendrix more than he likes him. I respect Tom Waits more than I like him. The list goes on.
On the other hand, we wondered who we like more than we respect. For instance, I like Van Halen much more than I respect them. I guess this falls into the "guilty pleasure" category.
I am curious who you like more than you respect or vice versa. Post your nominees!!
