considering we are the ones that want to hear the old stuff there is nothing wrong with signing the older bands if they are promoted properly. The Poison tour for example will likely be successfull, if a couple of the other hair bands are on the list then great. They also needed new bands as well and they needed to promote them.

I'm curious because Ratt for example had who knows how manys songs turned down before they finally did the album. Whose decision was that - Kalodner's or others? For all we know, Ratt has tons of great stuff ready, but the label was the reason for the lack of true excitement on the record. The album isn't bad, typical Ratt stuff, just nothing truly stunning. You can't just blame Ratt for this because you don't know the rest of the details.

Besides, other hair bands aren't doing bad, considering the market today. No they can't quite do the numbers they used to and that's sad...but hey, with all the crap coming out nowadays...where is Rock really at? Europe isn't dead, we just don't get their stuff over here and even good bands out of the US just never make it nationally. Yeah it is time to blame the record labels!

That's why concepts like Napster have potential so that the useless middleman will eventually be avoided. Unfortunately Radio play is the final hurdle.

Don't know what to do about that!
