Squeeze-ing the $ out

Yes, these are actual concert ticket prices. Who for? Bette Midler? Streisland? The Eagles? Wrong, wrong, wrong! It's for one of my favorite all time bands, British pop icons, Squeeze playing at the House Of Blues. Big fan that I am (I saw their final show at the condemned Rainbow in London) there is no way I would pay this to see Difford & Tilbrook again. And the music industry wonders why it's going down the toilet?

Amen to that brother. And furthermore, when you pony up that much for "established" or "reunited" big bands, it doesn't leave much budget to go out and see local original music, where you just might find the next "Squeeze" for $10.

That's why I gave up music and started ruling planets from afar...
