Well I have to say I've run into both Joe and Rick on occasion shopping in Dublin , and nobody pays them a blind bit of notice, in fact Rick is moving back to Sheffield shortly.They are some of the most unassuming rockstars you will ever meet , their Dublin show last year was like a hometown gig, everybody and I mean everybody being invited backstage for the party.Joe was asked recently about bringing unsigned bands on tour and while he was all in favour of giving them a break, a reasonably well known band puts bums on seats and dollars in pockets...a sad but realistic fact. Firehouse on the other hand have had many unknown local bands open for them , some going on to do well on their own. Hey Ted, what about Melodica, Westworld plus one hitting the road for a trek.......even 'localised ' gigs , NY, PA. etc......split the costs and the profits then everybody goes home happy.....I know easier said than done , but maybe wort consideration??
