    Wow, I never expected so much hate just from voicing my opinion.

    You got to express your opinion and people didn't like it, so they get to express their opinions too. And you're surprised by this?

    It wasn't hate. I just can never figure out why it bugs musicians that other musicians want to keep working when things beyond their power change.

    No worries but... the last half of your opening salvo was the most "hate" brought into the discussion regarding the band seems to me.

    I would never support or go see a band that has treated its' founding members so disrespectfully. That's just me, but you don't have to be offended.

    Just because you happen to disagree with my comment, doesn't make it hateful. It was my perspective on the topic at hand. I don't hate anyone.

    Actually your comment has nothing to do with the topic at hand. The topic was about SDs bassist, not about whether or not SD is still legitimate after a founding member dies.

    You're hijacking my thread with your ranting and then complaining about everyone else's responses.

  8. Agreed, the machine is a business that supports many careers and families.

    Please forgive me for highjacking your thread sir. I believe that my comments were legitimate and pertinent. There was no rant, just a couple of sentences. What did I complain about? I understand that TB is a rather cliquish club, where longtime members and mega posters carry on their personal conversations without pause or complaint. But when a 10 year neophyte on TB posts a thread that some people find disconcerting, it's a major flare-up. I am not interested in the least in being a part of that clique, and I will post whatever I chose to.

    Here's the easiest solution: start your own thread on the legitimacy of bands with dead members. How easy is that?? I mean, that's WAY easier than defending your comments in this thread, right?

    I don't find that losing one player in a large band such as the Eagles to be applicable, but I'm glad that you enjoyed the show. When founding members die or are pushed out of the band for purely egotistical and financial reasons (the Who's Entwistle and Moon, Yes' Chris Squire and Jon Anderson, etc.), it is in my mind, disrespectful, and unethical. The replacement players could just as easily reform under a new name and play THEIR own new music if they're that good. What's next, a Beatles revival with Paul and Ringo?

    You are absolutely correct. My mistake.
