    ... is opportunity sailing away.

    I saw Aerosmith last night in West Palm Beach, Florida. AWESOME. Although these guys are slighter older than VH -- they looked and sounded incredible. It was a multimedia show with 2 stages and pure rock 'n roll fun (except for a couple of the usual Aerosmith sugary ballads).

    But all through the show I could not help but wonder how incredible a classic VH show could be -- if Dave could fix his hair (see Sy Sperling) and Ed could get his health together (still smoking cigarettes with mouth cancer ain't smart, dickhead), Van Halen could put together a show using modern concert technology that would not be a simple nostalgia trip -- but a multimedia celebration of all that Van Halen once stood for --- which by the way is not the "cloak and dagger" mistreatment of their fans that we have suffered for the last 2 years.

    Boys, AC/DC and Aerosmith are taking their place in hard rock history, while you are taking yours on the couch. It wouldn't be long before there will be no fans to comeback for.

    I believe AC/DC and Aerosmith are taking the easy way to hard rock history. Unfortunately, we tend to think that longevity equals talent.
    Those other two bands haven't produced anything worth listening to since Bonn Scott and Toys in the Attic.

    Just what? [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

    It's the truth. There are a lot of really good bands and neither of those two are. They've found their formula and stuck to it. Doesn't make them good, just business minded.
