Quote of the Day (Joe Queenan, on Tribute Bands’ Economic Clout)

“Tribute bands ranging from Lead Zeppole to Bjorn 2 Run now account for 3.5% of. America's GDP, employing 2.5 million musicians and twice that number of stage hands, sound engineers and roadies. Working in a top-flight tribute band is so profitable that musicians graduating from prestigious music schools routinely join bands with names like Coldplague, Flock of Seconals and Gladys Night and the Pups.” —Joe Queenan, “With a Little Help From My Hordes of Imitators,” The Wall Street Journal, June 3-4, 2017
