Sometimes this gives you a little shock when you suddenly realize that a band doesn't look at all the way you expected. For instance, this morning was the first time that I actually saw an up-close photograph of the lead singer of Coheed and Cambria. I was expecting some sort of Supreme Emo King, skinny with tight jeans and a torn t-shirt and carefully styled tresses to dangle in his eyes to hide his tears, or whatever the reason is for that hairstyle.
This is not, in fact, what Claudio Sanchez looks like.
Does anyone else do this? Or am I the only person too lazy to find out more about the musical artists I enjoy?
P.S. I had a similar revelation with Keane about a year after their first album came out. Who would have guessed Tom Chaplin had such a baby face?
