    What artists, if any, get your money, pre-ordered, every time they announce new material, no questions asked, with no need to even hear a single song off the new release?

    Anything Kiss, if it's regarding pre-1996 material/reissues.

    Anything Led Zeppelin that is "new". But only Led Zeppelin literally. I'm not as eager about stuff like "Celebration Day" or "Page/Plant" stuff. Even though that stuff is fairly enjoyable.

    That's honestly the only two I can think of.

    Even borderline "No questions asked artists" like Elvis Presley, Paul McCartney or The Beatles, I have slight discretion on. :p

    I ask this minutes after pre-ordering the recently announced Dead Can Dance release.

    After their last effort I did hesitate, but in the end I popped for it.

    Same, there was a time when Bowie was an instant buy whatever was released, but I have had to cut back over the last 10 years.

    No doubt I'd be better off following your lead, but I am a bit stupid that way :/

    None anymore. I used to have a long list of "no questions asked where do I pay" artists until around the 00's. Now, I want to hear and sample it first before I drop any money. But, I am always on the lookout for new compelling music.

    Although David Rawlings most recent album was a bit of a letdown, Gillian Welch can do no wrong in my book, and as a duo they are about as good as it gets, especially live.

  17. Before today I would've said The Monkees, but I just found out they're putting out an X-mas album so I think that streak is broke.

    So I guess now just Mike Nesmith solo, Neko Case, Lydia Loveless and Dar Williams.

    That would be a new cd or perhaps standard LP release. Not necessarily a deluxe box set. I can usually afford the $11.99 cd release special. Although with my Target downsizing and Best Buy ending cd sales
    newer cds are more $$ because you have to go to B & N and pay more than list price or order online.

    Beatles/Solo and Springsteen are the only artists that completely qualify, and if all of the Bruce archival sets are included, not even he makes cut. Some that are close: Stones and Dylan.

    I got to see them "crash" a Conor Oberst show at the Ryman a few years ago. It was lovely.
