Nah. His hair was a lot longer by then.

Ha, true. I like that they have their name on the bass drum. I think all bands should do that. I hate when I walk into a show and can't figure out which opening act is playing.

That's an interesting thought. I wonder who was the first band to put their name on the bass drum.

I don't know, it seems so obvious that I never thought about it.

What if the band doesn't have a bass drum?
And don't even make a joke about, "then it's not a band". Heh.

I think bands should all wear costumes reflecting their band name. Like the Beatles should have always been wearing cockroach costumes. Then they would have actually made it to the top!

I feel that way about sports teams. They should dress like their mascots.
