    I think I saw that one on VH1. IIRC, it was Justin Timberlake's ( :spit: )

    I don't like it...I hate when people spend their money like that. Being humble is good.

    If you acctually tour you might want it because anything less will be uncofterble and well hotels will be more expensive... for a band that is nation wide i dont see how that thing is bad...

    Justin Timberlake imo should even be allowed to do "music" if you want to call it that... IMO that should be consider as Fraud...

    Like i said... he shouldn’t even be allowed to perform...

    When i look at that thing i picture a band of 4-5 people with friends (people helping out) so all together maybe 10-15 people on a bus touring?


    Even someone like that looser i am sure would have more then 1 person in that bus... people who um... well in real band would tune instruments and such… doing crap like that...

    in his case press play button...

    If Martha Stewart had her own tour bus, that would be it.

  19. These busses are rarely owned by the people that are inside them. Usually they are leased to them by companies that make it their business to do these types of things for high rollers. A bus like you are seeing here will set you back as much as $1 mil depending on the equipment and that's far too high for bands OR record companies to actually own. Let's keep in mind that the record co's are cheapskates to begin with. It's like bands not owning the sound equipment they use at every venue.

    I do happen to know that the NASCAR teams often own their own buses and RV's. That's understandable with the tradition of taking their families with them on the road. They can also mitigate some of the costs of these vehicles by building quite a bit of the hardware and fixturing themselves to be just what they need. And if it breaks down, they've got some of the better mechanics available for doing the repair :)

    Those big-ass RV's are only there to pass on the freeway.
