Agree. People would rather listen to Livin' on a Prayer for the millionth time than give some new tunes a chance. Honestly, it just perplexes me.

I've been to quite a few concerts over the past few years...Leppard, Crue, Bon Jovi, etc...And I see very large crowds at those events. So I know there are fans of this type of melodic/hair rock still out there. Then I look at a band like H.e.a.t...They are very similar to what those bands once were when they were breaking on the scene and H.e.a.t is really some combination of all of them...Yet, they go almost un-noticed here...mind boggling.

Anyways, I'm very appreciative that MRF4 is still going on and that Andrew is making the best of a tough situation. It's a great chance to catch some bands that we'd likely never be able to see otherwise.
