Wow. That's almost as bad as doing a concert at a dog racing track and still failing to sell out!

The only reason that came to mind is that they have played so many times in so many places that anyone that wanted to see them already had.

Sad about Cheap Trick turnout. They need to come to Baton Rouge, I gotta good feeling (town is stuck in the 80's, we still love the music here)...

EDIT: Interviewed 2014, same 5 guys now for 16 years, not bad for a cover band and I swear they just keep getting better (as does their stage show).

++++++++++

What else is sad (from Wikipedia)...

==========
"The Beastie Boys were an American hip hop group from New York City formed in 1981. The group comprised Michael "Mike D" Diamond (vocals, drums), Adam "MCA" Yauch (vocals, bass) and Adam "Ad-Rock" Horovitz (vocals, guitar)."

"On May 4, 2012, Yauch died from cancer at the age of 47."

"Founding Beastie Boys guitarist John Berry died on May 19, 2016, aged 52, as a result of frontotemporal dementia,"
==========

That I knew, this I didn't...

==========
"The Outfield was an English rock band based in London, England. The band achieved success in the mid-1980s and are best remembered for their hit single, "Your Love". The band's lineup consisted of guitarist John Spinks, vocalist and bassist Tony Lewis and drummer Alan Jackman."

"On 9 July 2014, John Spinks died of liver cancer. He was 60 years old."
==========

Cinderella? "Don't Know What You Got (Till It's Gone)" and "Nobody's Fool" my favorites.

I'm always up for some 80's hairbands! I'll see your Cinderella and raise you one Ratt!

My favorite Ratt, although apparently not popular enough to get a cheesy video (that's ok, I like the album cover)...

Sorry Dart. Not really. neaner

Kate Bush, Cinderella, and lots of stuff I've never heard of... I'm going to harvest the hell out of this thread when it's done (find what I like and then go on a music shopping spree). tuner

For some reason (?) at the time I could not stand Ratt but that has changed for sure and I do rock out to their hits when they come on the radio or Pandora

Another top band for me was Dokken - love, love that band - George Lynch is a true rock guitar virtuoso

It's Not Love


Breaking The Chains


Just Got Lucky


Into The Fire


and the mandatory rock ballad smile Walk Away



If you want a great Pandora channel create a "Dokken" channel, it sticks to the 80's rock genre better then using a lot of other bands

Since we are on the subject of old music. How many of you still use/listen to vinyl? I have a few hundred albums in the closet (some of which have never been released on CD) and am tempted to get a turntable again. I have a friend that is so into vinyl that he has a $1500 turntable (not including the cost of the cartridge and stylus).

Ah shucks, can't really stream comfortably on satellite internet. Don't feel bad for me, it's for the best. smile

Although it looks like they're running fiber-optics out here, at least along the main highway (on both sides of road) so maybe I'll soon have options. I haven't decided if that's a good thing or not.

Can't have 80's without some Rick James, although YT sound doesn't do this justice...

I'm fairly certain my last LP purchase was the soundtrack for "Return of the Jedi" in 1983. smile

Don't forget about all the "alternative" or "college radio" that was from that era. Some of the more "mainstream" of that era ;

Weezer, who are definitely not a new band, recently released a cover album 'The Teal Album' and it has a great cover of Tears for Fears "Everybody Wants to Rule the World".

Wasn't Tears for Fears considered to be New Wave?


What I find so funny about the "alternative" label in retrospect is that many of the artists who fell under that label had major commercial mainstream success.


So what were they an "alternative" to then?

I think Talking Heads, Elvis Costello and the B-52s, fell under that category but achieved pretty major success as well.

Until about the time I was engaged (early-'87), my music collection was mostly on 8-tracks (at that time people were happy to get rid of them, so large collection for little money). I purchased only a few LPs (often duplicates of 8-tracks) when I wanted the best sound quality or a cassette for the car (chrome or metal tape with proper recording levels). I always hated cheap quality record-store cassettes.

To pay for a ring and first new car, I sold lots of possessions including my king-sized waterbed and stereo/music collection. I don't remember where my LPs went. Wasn't long after getting married (1/88) that I started buying CDs.

It was alternative to what was being played on the radio at that time, so many of the bands got their first exposure on heavy rotation on MTV.
The bands got really big but at first the radio airplay was not there but it did come.

Tears for Fears and a lot of the New Wave bands did get the radio airplay but "College Rock" was a different story.

There you would hear bands like Husker Du, Fugazi, and so many more that did not get airplay on regular radio.
For us the College Rock station was coming out of Vanderbilt University and they were great back in the 80's

New Wave I think of "I Ran" and this from same band...

^ So many music videos have screwed up and/or shortend songs.

Hair Metal. Really the were just Rock.


You gotta be crazy, you gotta have a real need
You gotta sleep on your toes, and when you're on the street
You gotta be able to pick out the easy meat with your eyes closed
And then moving in silently, down wind and out of sight
You gotta strike when the moment is right without thinking
