So Im not talking about bands with 1 or 2 original members left who are still touring, but I am talking about impersonators. I read somewhere that a while back there had been an wave of fake bands. What I mean is this.. A small club announces that The Platters of The Drifters are going to perform. And on show night, 4 or 5 random 70 year old black gentlemen show up to sing (none of them ever having been a member of the previously mentioned bands). Now, I dunno about you, but Id be hard pressed to identify any member of either of these early doo wop vocal groups by name or face (esp . at 70 or 75 years old). I dont remember if it was the Drifters or Platters this happened with, but it was with some older doo wop groups in that era. Anyone else ever heard of this phenomena? I've also heard of this happening with 80s one hit wonder type bands. Does this still happen?
