Once “the Greatest Band in the Land” How much more…

money can they get out of people?? From selling KISS coffins to KISS condoms. You can buy busted concert guitars for $5,500.00 and used Microphones ($3,000.00) from each show. KISS Kruises and KISS coffee. KISS this and KISS that… For the past few years they have offered VIP “Meet and Greets” before the shows. I can dig that, hang out with the band and take a few photographs. That goes for $1000.00 dollars and doesn’t include a ticket to the show.

But now it even gets worse…

For the small price of $500.00 you can get the “Ultimate Onstage and Backstage Experience”. You get to look at Paul’s vocal station. Gene’s bass station and Tommy and Eric’s stations too and get a photograph with the road crew and have a “Question and Answer” session… In some select markets KISS’s Manager Doc McGee will come out and meet with you…

Roadies are important. They make the shows happen. They are the behind the scene guys. But really? $500.00 bucks to walk on the stage? No disrespect to the crew but come on what’s next? Are they going to sell the uneaten backstage catering food too ? How about the half rolls of toilet paper left in the bathroom by the band?

It’s America and you can pay what you want to pay and yea, KISS has a right to sale whatever they want to make a buck and someone will buy it… But for a band I once would have gone to the ends of the Earth for, it’s hard now as an adult to  see what’s next they are going to hawk and think WTH…Come on guys…:-( Is there no stoop too low?

Dave Rogers of the world famous Dave’s Guitar Shop

 interview by David Lee of the band Crimson Fool

 

Dave Rogers had little more than a handful of guitars and a dream when he opened the now world famous “Dave’s Guitar Shop,” located in the little known music mecca of La Crosse, Wisconsin. Dave Rogers is living proof that with hard work, sacrifice and networking (and this is before the days of the internet and the world wide web, mind you) anything can be achieved. I have known Dave for over 25 years and as a punk kid, I was a regular in his store. I bought my first bass from him, and had to make sure I had a “Dave’s Guitar Shop” T Shirt (because no real musician would be without one! I mean, they are just waaaay cool.) I now sit in Dave Rogers office, that is actually bigger than his entire first store, to find out more about Dave, his beginnings, the ingenuity that got him to where he is today and hear some stories about rock and roll.

Dave, you have said what interested you in music and guitars was your older brother who played in bands when you about 12 years old. At what age were you when you first started playing guitar?
I was born and raised in Marshfield Wisconsin and that is where my brother’s band was based. My brother had a great record collection that he shared with me and both he and my Mom helped me get a guitar to get started, even though money was very tight at our household. As I remember it my first guitar came from Woolworths and we got it for $10 as it was missing Read more…
