For ye have the poor always with you; but me ye have not always.
When you read Bruce Frank's perspective on The Dream (a couple of stories down) that was KCAC & Rebirth years ago, you can't help but think....... hell, we sold out. We all sold out. Zappa said we would, the Firesign Theatre said we HAD and for most of us it is something we still seek to DO - given enough ca$h flow and Financial Security.
What am I bid for The Past? Can you really afford the cost? Wanna go around again?
In the clickable headline above is a story lamenting the slow sales - in Britain - of tickets to the Rolling Stones... oh shit, they're not SELLING? PANIC! FREAK OUT!
In this link
if you want to bother, is this choice passage;
"The Rolling Stones concert raises many important questions though. How many rich folks are there in Western Montana who would pay $2,000 or more to see the Stones? What lucky fan will catch Keith Richards' walker when he throws it into the crowd after the show? Will members of the audience be prohibited from holding up lit cigarette lighters after the encore because of the amount of bottled oxygen in use by the band?"
Sure fella........ we ALL want to see the Rolling Stones and we're willing to spend a good chunk of our inheritances to do it but damn, I feel so GUILTY!
Pleased to meet you. Hope you guess my name.
