re: Why Do We Even Honor CSA Leaders, A Country We Defeated? - geauxbrown
The real tragedy is how long it took the Union to squash the rebellion. How in God's name does it take a nation as powerful as the United States, almost 5 years to bring about an end to war, against a rebellion held together by string, sitting 90 miles from DC? 90 miles! Also, in regards to Li...

re: Baseball parents. Question... - geauxbrown
Have 3 kids. My girl plays college softball, our middle child (a boy) only plays soccer and our youngest (13) plays baseball. I was gung ho with the girl and she could take it. Started throwing a foam ball with her when she was probably 4 or 5 and moved on from there. The middle child hated it, didn...

[quote]I dunno...an average gross of $1 million a night is pretty impressive, and that probably doesn't even account for revenue made from merch sales or VIP packages.

[quote]Do the math. Average arena band sells around 12,000 tickets, average ticket price around $75, $900,000 in gross sales. The vast majority of ticket sales are going to the band. The venue makes their money on alcohol sales, parking, etc.[/quote] The overhead for a show is staggering though. ...

re: Boy the Dixie Chicks sure screwed up huh? - geauxbrown
First off, the group (or more importantly) their tour date figures are average. You would have to look at the number of dates they worked to arrive at that figure.

re: Artist not credited that played on other artist's songs - geauxbrown
Bernard Purdie has maintained for years that he played drums on one of the later Beatles albums. The information is so detailed that I almost believe him. For those of you who don't know, Purdie was the top studio drummer in New York for years, playing on hundreds of hit records. Glenn Frey, Don ...

I really dig the Band. Levon was one of my favorite vocalist and now thinking about it I just never drew the similarities between the two but they're definitely there. Good information, especially on some of British stuff. ...
