soul sucking at its finest...

The rise in tribute bands disturbs me, even if I enjoy the performances themselves. The fact that the largest acts in this town are cover bands, and that such acts seem to be the new growth industry nationwide is pathetic. I don't begrudge people making a living playing music, but I wonder how you can spend your life playing other people's songs and really call yourself a musician... Playing covers was the least amount of fun I've had in a band, and that involved maybe two or three a night. I would rather work on my own music and not play out, than play other people's music to a bunch of drunk assholes... and so I do.
