Holograms

by Malaka » Wed Mar 28, 2018 2:14 pm

I thought I would stir up the hornet's nest here since the broads are pretty quiet lately. There is a new trend in concerts in the form of holograms for deceased musical artists, i.e. Ronnie James Dio, Elvis, Michael Jackson, 2Pac, etc.
Are you for this or against it?
Does it carry on a legacy, or should the dead rest in peace?
Is this good for the fans, or an exploitation / cash grab?
Would you like to see a hologram-dedicated band (like Dio Disciples) on the ship?
Would you like to see just one or two holograms during the All-Star Jam (like Lemmy, Dime, or Cliff Burton)?

I have never seen one, so I have no opinion, but for those who have seen one, please sound off!

To me, this is an insult to these artists, as well as an insult to people that go to see that. This is called a live show for a reason.

It's sad that our heroes die, but that's part of the package we get from the day we are born. Living in the past never leads to good stuff (wow, that's deep bro)

Pretty much THIS.

I think it comes across as a tawdry money-grab...and I'm hoping people stay AWAY from this in droves. That would send a clear message of "Hey, don't try to pull this stuff again."
