I really wish everyone in the d.dolls fanbase could
be understanding and positive
Noted that I live in greater boston,
and have seen them together and solo lots,
but i had to live with the 2+ year hiatus tooadded emphasis to hayley's quote is mine
The thing with Amanda and Brian is that they (along with their team) bend over backwards all the time to make fans happy, unlike any other musician out there right now.
even before the great recession hit,
a+b were special in this regard.
many musicians care much less for their fans
even before the great recession,
the music business was often hard.
too many are in it out of greed.
that, too often, makes making deals, writing and signing contracts
hard. very hard. it can be very ugly.
(i have nothing direct from a+b+team about this,
my knowledge is from other sources
and venues book months ahead
so putting a tour together is real work and complex
since the great recession stuck,
promoters are having MUCHO trouble
only a few of the top acts
come close to selling out
merch sales are down
it's hard out there for everyone in the music business
a+b+team care too much,
we're trying to book a tour here/then,
and have it fall through
(none of them have said this to me in that many words ...)(end of my periodic "the music biz is evil" rant ; - )
hang in there,
the best is yet to come
ps: and it will be even better,
if YOU can sell out ALL of this tour
the venues are HUNGRY for
bands that can do this
