I don’t like tribute bands. I don’t care how good they are. I think they are a negative experience. I can’t see why anyone talented enough to play that well would want to be so uncreative. Tribute bands are ruining Rock Music.
Now I can see the flaws in my feelings. It is creative to mimic another person so closely. It is no difference to performing in a play. A lot of bands cover other people’s songs. What’s the difference?
I don’t like them.
The Upbeat Beatles were good at what they did. John and Ringo really looked the part. George didn’t really look like George though. They played their part – though I found it irritating the way they referred to each other as if they were really Paul, John, George and Ringo. They focussed on the earlier Beatles of course. That was to be expected.
I just don’t like Tribute Bands. It’s mercenary.
