As a JB fan all I can say is just because you can play instruments and write songs does not mean you are "trying" to be anybody.  The Jonas Bros have never seemed to be trying to be anybody except a group of brothers trying to make as much money as fast as they can. a-hard-days-night-ringo-15

From 4:00.

(Nick did actually say in an interview that they had seen AHDN and were trying to incorporate the fans like they did, so at least he was acknowledging it)

 

From 2:50 *cough John Lennon's pit bed cough*

I haven't read anyone's response to this thread but all I can hope for is that no one is even considering this. I've never heard one Jones Bros song but I think we can all agree they are not The Beatles… or trying to be The Beatles…. or how ever anyone wants to analyze this…. I think it's pretty legitimate to say that no one will ever be The Beatles or TRY to be The Beatles or close to The Beatles or anything else anyone can think of the refer any other band to The Beatles. Correct?

When are you free to take some tea with me?

At least they say "Hey the Beatles had good ideas, let's incorporate them in our movies or videos!!" I think it's nice.. but it fails.

If they were trying to be the new Beatles it didn't work too well. They fell of the face of the earth.

The thing is.. why do you want to be the Beatles? Be something else…… I mean, if you are influenced by them fantastic but be yourself.

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 That's true. And they work for Disney right? I don't think they can even give ideas to their bosses. a-hard-days-night-paul-3

And that is why I hate the music industry. If you don't do whats popular, you won't be popular. Glad that wasn't around in the sixties as much as it is today.

That's not exactly true. I think Berry Gordy had plenty of say with how his Motown acts would be presented and what they would sing. The Monkees were ruled over by Don Kirshner for the first year or two. While I think you can draw parallels between why the Monkees were controlled and why Disney acts are controlled (little kiddies with impressionable minds as their fan base), I think the Supremes and the Miracles (a.k.a. "adult" acts. "Real" acts) were just as closely scrutinized by the management machine as the Jackson 5 were.

The Motown example is different because the artists were watched over for a bit, but were given free reign after their first commercial success.

I'm fairly certain that they weren't that laissez-faire with their golden geese.

 

Here's something I found online about Stevie Wonder: http://www.peopleandprofiles.c.....type=image

Besides Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder was one of the few Motown stars to contest the label's factory-like operation methods: artists, songwriters, and producers were usually kept in specialized collectives with little or no overlap, and artists had no creative control. Wonder argued with Berry Gordy over creative control a number of times. As a compromise, Motown released an album under the name "Eivets Rednow" (Stevie Wonder backwards). These arguments continued, and Wonder allowed his Motown contract to expire. He left the label on his twenty-first birthday in 1971. His final album before his departure was Where I'm Coming From, which Gordy had strongly fought against releasing.

And here's something tying in the Beatles with Motown that I found interesting:

At least we can agree on that. :)

That's what I meant, but I worded it badly. Sorry.

Let's just all agree that Motown is better than the Jonas Brothers.

All in agreement? Good, Disney wishes it could be this funky.

I LOVE THIS SONG! My dad had this picture of the cleaning products Pride and Joy by eachother and I would laugh because I understood how it was related.
