"Artist Collection"

I'm sure this has been asked for already, but my number 1 feature I'd like to see on Spotify is the ability to drag the artist name and/or picture into an "artist collection" within my collections on the left sidebar.  Right now the only way to keep track of what artists I like is to create playlists, and the playlists have to be either albums or tracks, and this isn't the cleanest and easiest way to simply keep track of artists I like.  I find myself having to use the search field over and over again to listen to a particular artist.  


Although this idea has been suggested first, I'd like to merge it with a more popular idea to ensure it gets the best attention it deserves:

This is exactly what I would like do as well, listening to new music!!! I would just like to have an overview of the artists that interest me. It would also be nice to have a different presentation of the artists in "my collection", a kind of extra side bar with the artists listed alphabetically allowing me to browse it quickly without having to view all the albums and tracks. That could be an additional sidebar that appears when you click the art its, like in the iPad version?!
