    I think Anders should invite KArl Denson's band up on stones Thursday and do the Sticky Fingers complete LP set they threw down a few years ago. Might get Karl chucked from the band though.

    Which, if ya ain't heard it (or read it) yet, there IS a second part. Here's the whole thang: "Every night's a Saturday night, and every day's a Sunday." . . .

    Amen.
    I really want to read that. I was mainly thinking of the '72 Kinks album of the same name. One of my all time favorites.

    We obviously are using a different definition of "show biz". No sense quibbling about it

    I saw Sam Butera open for Van Morrison in SF back in 1999. It was a fun show. Van sang a couple of songs with Sam's band.

    I fergit the name of Louis Prima's band (maybe Dave Butera?) who played JF a few years back. Pure Vegas goombahs, with corny jokes & all. I loved them.... for the music

    B.B. King may not be considered "show biz' but he was definitely an entertainer and he embraced it. He loved to work a crowd.

    Ike & Tina Turner Revue REALLY worked the crowd. One of the best live shows i ever saw!
    Putting on a great show is NOT what I mean by "show biz"
    Why are you hassling me? You're arguing semantics about the term "show biz". Give it a rest....
    Maybe he was referring to the other BB. Beatle Bob.

    BB was as big a ham as ever took the stage. He loved working the crowd. Musical appeal and show biz know how.

    Its NOT musical preference! You're taking it too literally, I'm pretty sure you understand what I'm talking about: Super Bowl Halftime show is the ultimate example of "show biz": costumes, big production number with lots of dancers, lights, fireworks, special effects: "GLITZ"
    An example of "non show biz" would be James Booker playing for free weeknights at the Maple Leaf in the good ole days, maybe the best piano player alive, you could do your laundry in the back & hear musical genius at the same time
    I really think you're playing Devil's Advocate here. You know damn well what i mean, its not a precise term, & of course there is plenty of grey area

    NRBQ are proudly in show biz and don't really like being considered only a "bar band". As Terry Adams said, "We're world famous except a lot of people don't know it yet". Also from Bonnie Raitt, "I love the Rolling Stones, but NRBQ are the best rock and roll band ever."
