Check the vinyl folks. Everyone had the Alive album back when they were a pup. The bus came by shortly after...

i think some 'jam' bands are trying to to be more main stream for money, fame, appreciation, or whatever, but i think a lot of other bands like UM for example feel the unhealthiness in the jam scene as someone put it, and are reaching out to other groups and parts of society in an attempt to change the scene, or correct the scence, or take it in different and/or new directions. UM's S squared project is a perfect example. using technology to interact the fans and the band. pretty sure what they are doing is the first of its kind. that is saying a lot considering how many talented and creative people are out there. i believe pete townsend had a similiar idea back in the day with his lifehouse project, but it was so abstract and possibly ahead of its time that it never panned out. plus the rest of the band didn't know what the hell pete was going for.

Like any of you would not trade your jobs to be a member of KISS. They had the perfect business model. Made millions, traveled the world, dated movie stars, and had damn good time. Where do I sign up? Same old gripe. By the way since you talking about the usual Phish vs Panic thing. Look at the top 100 grossing musical acts for the last 10-12 years and you will find both bands there every year. They are not doing too bad.

you guys make me laugh

Kiss has had a way bigger effect on the musical landscape than every "jamband" that ever was, save maybe the Dead or Allmans(if you consider them jambands)

Kiss was everywhere in the 70s, a total worldwide cultural icon. All the kids on my block in NJ where in the Kiss army and loved it!

Sure they are cheesy and an over the top spectacle, but that is the whole point!

Shout it, shout it, shout it out loud!!!

When the wrinkles show through the makeup it may be time to hang it up
