Talent vs X factor (question for Dave)

Hi Dave

Do you think that the image of an artist or band is as essential as the recordings itself? Do you think image influences the way people interpret the music? In Hollywood there's something that is called a Q rating to decide how memorable an actor or actress is, does this count in music as well in your opinion?

The Rolling Stones are known for their drug use, is this a factor that played a role in record sales? When I listen to Nirvana it gives the sound that bit extra, that bit more drama knowing that Kurt Cobain was heavily addicted, it's like I could hear his pain through the music, it's really weird.

Also, did you ever have a similar experience like me? If yes, which album or song or artist/band did influence the way you interpret the music because of the image?

Thank you for your time.
