  another reponse:
  ya mark,that is what i was saying in the oraganil post.i was not 
being selfish.i think they should remember where they come from.maybe 
playing here and seeing they do have fans and people do want to see 
them they well be inspired to go on..well likely not but hey you 
never know! but than again if it's time to end and they aren't happy 
doing anymore it's a good thing.nobody wants unhappy musicians.
