Season 1 Episode 3(2 of 2): The day that music didn’t die (living in the times of the tribute bands)
We are living in bizarre times when pretend is replaced with words like virtual; where human organs are grown on the backs of pigs; people are able to move prosthetic arms with their minds; and everything on your computer will soon be stored in the Clouds. We are walking among kids who clock more hours in the ‘World of Warcraft’ or playing ‘Rock Band’ than they do living in actual ‘real’ lives. We now have more tribute bands touring then we do have original bands playing their actual original music.
If you were too young to see Led Zeppelin, why not go and see ‘Black Dog’ or ‘The White.’ If dancing the night away to ABBA is your thing, go see ‘Björn Again.’ Can’t afford Rolling Stone tickets? Why not go see ‘Hot Rocks’? Heck I even turned on the TV recently and saw a full TV commercial for a Beatles Tribute show called ‘Rain.’ There are literally thousands of Tribute Artists out there and I happen to think it’s great.
