Just thought I'd throw this out as a topic. In my area, the Sf bay area, there are a lot of tribute bands. AC/DC, Zeppelin, Journey, Bad Company , The Stones, and of course The Beatles and a few country bands as well. Some are OK and some are horrible. The funny thing is that some band are paying tributes to bands that are still touring like Journey, Santana, and AC/DC although they may be done touring. Anyway, I just don't get it. Why would people want to see this when you can go to just about any club that has live music and see a band that plays all of those bands. Some of these tribute bands play wineries and are seen at a lot of county fairs. At least at the fairs there is no charge to see these bands. I don't think I would pay to see a tribute band. It amazes me that there is seem to be in demand. I prefer to play my own music and some covers but mostly my stuff. Not currently playing right now but then again I'm turning 59 this month. Just don't have it in me to play out a lot or tour. Done that many times in the past and had a blast. Anyway, what do you guys think?
