Wordpress Vs Standalone, Custom Websitewordpress

My website is www.clubstep.co.uk and it's for my YouTube channel, www.youtube.com/ClubstepUK which is an electro house and dubstep promotional channel. What I'm wondering is whether I should design my site with Wordpress or not.

I know a couple of people who have pretty good looking sites through wordpress. I doubt they can do much in terms of coding but the sites work.
And for the OP's needs, Wordpress seems ok.

With Wordpress however, 9 times out of 10 there is a easy to use plugin already created. There are literally thousands of themes for the site and you can customize any of them from right within the admin panel. Not only is Wordpress great for blogs, it is really good for static pages too. Just check out the small biz theme sometime (http://www.expand2we...smallbiz-theme/). I found that to be a real eye opener to just how much Wordpress could be used to make full websites.
In the end, it comes down to preference. If you are really skilled at hand-coding, then that may be best for you but if your not and you think you should take the time to check out Wordpress, I'd recommend you spend a great deal of time looking at it. I started using it about 2 months ago after trying to hand-code everything I ever created and I'm hooked. Having the knowledge of how to hand-code mixed with the Wordpress engine has done wonders for me. I hope this helps.
