Yes, we should, from now, restrict it to bands - that's tougher

So no Zappa, Frank and the Mothers

or

Young, Neil and Crazy Horse.

Just a suggestion.......

It was my dream to go there and see Fats before he retired. Doesn't get much more historic than Fats Domino. I've seen a few Nola artists myself, Irma Thomas, Neville Brothers, Dr John.
