A hundred bucks a year? Really? Most bands I like put out one album every two years, sometimes one album every five or six years. I'd say most of those bands albums cost maybe 15 bucks on average, maybe less if they're not so well known.
So where does the hundred come from? IMO that is way too much to ask out of anyone unless you wake up one morning and they're standing over you with a creepy smile on thier face, and unless they're a hot chick I don't want any part of that.
Without attending a concert/show I am not sure how I would spend $100 a year on one performer. I mean you could do it once, as you buy the box set of someone who has been around for awhile - but each year would be a challenge.
Maybe 10, but not by earlier stated insane criterions.
Im talking about people that listen to 95% of what i put out there. I think those are a god given in these spiritually empty times, and anyone driving 400 miles for you means you are either a sonical god, or your fan is completely bonkers. Take your pick.
