A tribute to classic rock
Monday, July 24, 2006
From watching the movie Rock Star, I learned the difference between a tribute band and a cover band. A tribute band is one that recreates the actual moments of a band they're portraying, including the clothes, the movements, the exact way the songs were perform, etc. A cover band merely plays another band's songs, without any concern about authenticity.

Here in Dallas, we have a few tribute bands and cover bands (one of which is Boys Named Sue ... sure, they have their own songs, but I've only heard them on Myspace, never live).

Even though it amazes me with the size of the turnout to see these bands, it really shouldn't surprise me. People usually want what's safe, and they want to hear songs that bring back memories of better times.

Now, thanks to Office Pirates you too can relive those golden moments of life through 20 Classic Rock Tribute Bands.
