I walk past our local concert venues moderately often, and their billings are always filled with this or that tribute band. Now, I don’t begrudge musicians their night’s takings, and the public seems to demand tribute acts more than original bands or mixed covers-and-originals acts, so I suppose that if your ambition is to impersonate David Bowie for Devonshire devotees, then have at it.
So I wondered what sort of tribute act I might be able to perform with. Can’t really play any useful instrument; my voice, though loud, isn’t a tuneful rock voice; and I probably would have difficulty with all the technical details that professional musicians master.
I know: anyone up for a Fugs tribute band?
