Knowing when to quit, is clearly a skill which many top musicians, sportsmen, actors and other celebs, seem totally unable to grasp.




[sign in to see URL] as long as people/fans still pay, musicians like DP and offshoot bands will continue to play. They still get good attendances.



Which is absolutely the ONLY reason for all this reunion crap. It's just for the money because they know it will pay, just like the Rainbow 2016/2017 and 2018 outings. There is nothing wrong with that but the cash they earned should be offset against the damage they do to their legacy. I guess they don't care as presumably the money is more important anyway. Fair enough, who wouldn't take some easy money for doing what they do.

Problem is that now they don't do it especially well anymore!!

I'd have much more respect for them all if they said "We are actually just doing this for the money, because it pays well and the pension pot needs a booster". That would be a lot more palatable than all the utter bullsh1t about it being "for the fans" or "for nostalgia" it's just insulting twaddle. Anyone who actually even vaguely believes any of that crap needs a brain transplant!!!



What damage to their legacy???
If you haven't noticed they don't care about their legacy? Who does?
It won't pay your rent

It seems people here are more concerned about the legacy, than the legends themselevs.

Precisely that's exactly what these "for nostalgia" or " for the fans" bullsh1t shows are all about, just exactly as you've stated. Well done Boogaloo, spot on and very succinct too, excellent.

So what's the big deal? Good for them! I will pay and be the first one standing in line if they ever do have a final show with past and current members. Hope it happens!!

Sorry I think you misunderstood me - I was just picking the 3 most used words and phrases from your posts. You can copy and paste the above from me in future if you want to save time and potentially getting repetitive strain injury in your fingers. Sorry to be catty I'm just tired of reading the same comments time and again at the moment.
