but you dont listen to them for about a year and go back to listning to them are you still as dedicated of a fan since you didnt listen to them for so long?

this matters why? why are you trying to prove to somone you are dedicated in enjoying a particular bands music?

questions aside , No. (not that it matters at all)

I think if you know a bands catalog well enough and maybe seen em live you can say ur a dedicated fan..idk. Just because you don't listen to em for a while doesn't mean you're not a dedicated fan. I'm a die hard peppers fan, but sometimes i wont listen to them for a few months because I get into other bands for a while. and yea anyway it shouldn't really matter anyway.

You might still be knowledgeable but not dedicated.

i consider myself a pretty dedicated Pearl Jam fan, but i havent listened to them that much in a while now. i do have most of their cds, 2 of their dvds, and ive seen them live. i think thats enough to consider myself dedicated, even if i havent listened to them in a while.

I would say your a dedicated fan, yes.

I haven't been drunk in over a week, and I'm still dedicated to beer. I will always love it and worship it.

IMO, it depends how you react when their next album comes out. you're going to get sick of listening to the same thing, and there are so many bands out there you can't just listen to the same thing all the time. Now, if you don't like their new stuff, or you don't even listen to it, then that changes things. BUT ...... like me, I'm a fan of old Aerosmith, not new, and the same with many bands, so to be a dedicated fan, do you really have to like everything the band ever did?

No, IMO, I would still see them in concert cause I know they are going to play some of what I like, and maybe I'll develope a new appreciation for their newer stuff. Mostly, as a growing musician, your tastes are going to change. If you fell like you have to like one type of music you are never going to grow. And, if you have to keep listening to the same thing all the time to prove you are a dedicated fan, I think that says you're trying to hard to be a fan. Enjoy the music that you are listening to right now, and next time you hear your favorite band, you'll remember why they are your fave.

I think if you are a dedicated fan of a band, you will want to listen to them a lot no matter what. Not listening to them for over a year you lose some of your fan status.

oh of course. I think that if you are a true fan you will always be, its just a matter of how much you listen to them/how much you know about them, etc.

if your really a dedicated fan, and are truly into the music, you dont need to listen to it constantly.
#18
Who seriously fucking cares? Dedication is subjective, and trust me mate; whatever artist you feel like you've 'double-crossed' doesn't know or care about your existence or the fact you've not listened to their music for a while.
The will to neither strive nor cry,
The power to feel with others give.
Calm, calm me more; nor let me die
Before I have begun to live.

-Matthew Arnold

Arguments are to be avoided; they are always vulgar and often convincing.
