Reading the Metallica gig prices on post here. Got me thinking, remember a when of bands at the Cuinzie Nuek, Marillion for one, Fish all 7ft9 of him going to punch my lights out for stating they were a crap Genesis and I hated Genesis. But talked up the Hibs and everything was good. Payed £3 to see Bowie, Rush, Rainbow and the mighty Quo at different venues back in the day.The bands make their dosh now touring and not through record sales now I think.I would say get out and watch live music at local gaffs. Luck down here two good rock/live music pubs near by. Seen Graham Bonnet few weeks back for a fiver in a 100 or so capacity boozer. Brilliant show.
