I'm thinking about male performers here, you know.
Its like this, while I recently did some research on Hardcore in the first half of the eighties, I couldn't help noticing, that most of the singers liked to perform topless; also, that there were hardly any girls in the audience, but this is a different matter.
Anyway, I became aware that, not only do most of the bands I go to see, perform fully clothed, it would be generally unthinkable for them to take off their shirts. Too old and too nerdy probably. Also, for some strange reason, many of the bands I like, have at least on female member and I think the topless act is more common amogst all boy bands. I could be wrong here, but it always seemd a rather jockish thing to do in my view.
Some people can get away with it and some can't, yet by and large I find it somwhat inappropiate, unless it is done on an outdoor festival where half of the audience is topless as well.
Also, I would like to find out who did it first. I mean, everyone has this image of Iggy performing topless, but he wasn't the first, was he?
Who was it then?
