I agree with your theory that a handful of favorites is a lot better than hundreds of "ok" bands. However, 62 is a bit low for me. I think I have around 130 artists and I'm still missing a few. I used to be part of the "more is always better" group when I was younger and I've found I'm much happier with my music now that I've gotten rid of the stuff that was just decent and stuck with the (mostly) great stuff.
