[quote]Right or not, I kept out bands with individual artists fronting them, like Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band, and Stevie Ray Vaughan & Double Trouble.[/quote]

Thanks, but not saying that the beer analogy encapsulates the entire European economy, but it does shed some light. Their buying power just isn't there. They rely on family and survive on more meager terms than we do.

I had an old boss, that hosted an exchange student from Europe. The kid was great, and my boss gained a lot of insight from the guy. He asked them about warm beer, that Europeans favor. The European explained, that they couldn't afford refr...

My best friend in high school, that I hadn't spent much time with in 20+ years, we met and spent a week+ on a motorcycle trip through southern California. It was a really good trip, and we had a lot of fun.
It just so happened that I had gone on a big MC trip by myself the year before, and the o...

My son and I had this conversation the other day. Who would we consider for US bands?

That's a great story, Pimp. About 10 years ago, I took Spark Jr., to Houston to a U2 show. He was about 15 at the time, and we had a great weekend. We...
