      If so, I’m selling my Enron stock and investing in that Google thing.

      No way. It wouldn’t be the same without Moon and Entwistle.

    Haters ‘gonna hate.

    They’re smart. Like many other bands, they cater to those who wish to hear/ see them & actually have the expendable income to do so. Bashing them on here makes you sound jealous of those who can afford to go see them. Simple as that.

    I know, it’s hard to go to concerts when, instead of working, you spend all your time in your mom’s basement, eating mini pizzas and posting your ‘witty’ comments. Wipe the grease from your fingers before making a follow up comment to this post!
