Walter Giardino + Ronnie Romero UK dates


This is the only one I can see so far, but I'm sure there'll be more.

Yawn.......

A Blackmore replicant...............

And a Generic Metal Singer who sings with the current version of Rainbow .........
is now out playing as a Rainbow Tribute show............... gotta be mental stuff!

Why would anyone anywhere pay to see that?
Especially after the Real Rainbow didn't exactly blow the Glasgow audience away anyway!!

These whippersnappers are only starting the pension pot BSB and they will need to tour until they're 67 or something crazy.

Re: Walter Giardino + Ronnie Romero UK dates


or the alternative version - I need a job and some income (food on the table) and instead of cleaning windows/working at Burger King or whatever, I'll do my job - playing music.

Not all musicians are blessed with superstardom - look at the fringe players we all know of and have discussed at length Doogie White, Graham Bonnet, JLT etc. They are all scratching a living together. There are thousands of them...

Who wants to (or is capable of) work(ing) with a regular job after tramping the stages.

So in the end: so what - good luck to the guy trying to do his thing.

To coin a well know phrase: Beggars can't be choosers. I suggest that if he had had a better choice he would have done that instead... ?

What would you do: starve? Not pay the bills... go and live with your parents etc.??

I suggest we need to be less idealistic - this is life.

The days of superstars are over -at least in rock. I like Ronnie and have no problem with him doing this kind of thing. I think it's good that he gets more experience.

Yes very true indeed and of course I appreciate they need to earn a living, of course they do, but as a current member of the current Rainbow, going out as a Rainbow Tribute show seems incongruous, well to me anyway.

If they were a Dio tribute then maybe I'd understand it better somehow. Of course DIO himself will return soon as we know, but as a hologram, .... another Music BUSINESS nightmare scenario. They can't even leave the guy in peace even after he's dead.

However, each to their own. Personally I wouldn't want to see this Giardino/Romero show, but others may well do.
