  1. 'The River': Steven Van Zandt Looks Back

    Just gone back to read the interview with Max http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/max-weinberg-on-river-tour-what-he-learned-from-bruce-springsteen-20160209?page=2 and pull up the tracks he refers to as I'm reading - wonderful!

    It's hard to be a saint ...

    I'm not saying he/they won't make a lot of money just not "most of the pie". Online estimates of what artists make from a show are around 35% of takings. I know it's a racket but if you put very limited supply with almost unlimited demand, that's what happens. Mind you, the one thing I don't remember from any of the shows I've been to (19 and counting) is the price of the tickets!
  4. Bruce to release autobiography

    After I read the fascinating Peter Ames Carlin book I thought, "No need for Bruce to write his autobiography now." But somehow I think Bruce will have stuff to say that no-one else could and maybe it will go quite deep - I'm looking forward to it. At least he's waited this long unlike some ...

    I doubt Bruce gets most of it http://rockandrollguru.blogspot.co.uk/2011/03/price-of-concert-breaking-down-where.html

    Is there an echo in here, echo in here ...

    Of course then you had to make sure you didn't lose your tickets! I used to use Stargreen all the time - they're still going. It would be funny if we wandered in there and scored Bruce tickets! Not sure they get them these days?

    Does anyone else remember when you used to check the music papers for news of a gig (or the Evening Standard perhaps in London) and then send a postal order and an SAE to the promoter and wait for your tickets to drop through the letter box - or not? Or join the queue at the venue/ticket agent - tricky if you were still at school. Got to see The Who, Stones, Rory Gallagher and Faces etc that way. I'm not saying it was better just less strain on the heart!
  9. Attended shows

    Just added the Attended Shows link to my own profile and viewed message board on laptop - doesn't seem to be a live link to My Page. PS Can't change/edit the text below the dotted line on postings either for some reason - doesn't appear on edit profile. Hope someone can offer advice, thanks.
  10. Attended shows

    Does the My Page Attended Shows link function work on forum posts? Tried clicking (iPad) on one or two people's links and it didn't take me anywhere. Any tricks when adding URL to profile? Thanks

    Oh well, we all experience these things differently!

    Best venues for me were probably Earls Court (all seating but had something like 4th row from front and no-one sat down!) and Crystal Palace - more of an outdoor arena than a stadium - very intimate feel; same with RDS in Dublin. I agree that indoor arenas have a more concentrated atmosphere but outdoors can work - the pit at Wembley was fine - great views and good sound.
