I mentioned in another thread that Ticketmaster had emailed me about tickets for when they played the Birchmere in Alexandria last Sunday. I NEVER got such a message from Ticketmaster when GBR were touring - I always went when they were close by and they were always a sellout or nearly so. I remember when GBR played Easton MD a few years ago, they were sold out before anybody told the guys they had a gig there (I texted George about it and he had no idea they'd even been booked yet). That's not happening with the Marvinettes. The "casual" fan base seems to be diminishing and MM and whoever don't have the chops to keep the interest going. I'm waiting to see what lawsuits come up when they don't make the money they thought they would.
Sometimes I get to wondering. Based on number of views to posts on the various sites concerning "our guys". There are about 200 or less of us die hards. Not having any way of knowing how many other die hards are out there, our numbers are rather small.
Curious about the rest of the casual fans out there. Do they have a clue as to what's happened? Do they really care?
Time could tell, as we see how well attended the current groups shows become within the next year or so. I suppose....
