Thoughts for you all
While I am sitting here waiting for the plumber to come ( yes, moved it up a day- can't stand bailing lol) I wandered to the OF, and was reading the various posts on the up-comming "vault re-release". I finally shared my thoughts on the matter-- what do you think, Am I right, or just blowing smoke???
Interesting points all! I'm not sure how I feel about the upcomming "reissue" either, but some points stand out ( to me anyway lol)
1- this seems to be the record company's idea- not the bands! Phil was quoted as saying that he thought this was "flogging a dead horse", and he wasn't even part of it. So either Island has something up their collective sleeve's ( possibly "priming the pump" for a new release?) or they are , as other' s have said- milking the "cash cow".
2- The band just came off tour last November! This band has never been known for the yearly album/tour route- what makes us think they'd start that NOW??!
3- Rick & Lauren, Joe & Kristine- both just got married! Both Sav and Vivian have YOUNG kids at home. These guys are not as " foot-loose" and free as they once were. They have REAL reasons to spend some time home with loved ones now ( which is a great thing IMHO) So to think they are not going to do so is just not fair to them- or their families.
4- Joe has stated, and we all heard it - "there will be a next time!" So those of the "doom & gloom" mind-set: take a deep breath! I seriously doubt this is any kind of a harbinger of the demise of the band.
I am a huge fan and I have faith that they will go on. Rumors and speculation have always happened- just don't let them get to you! Will I buy the new Vault- probably. My old one is pretty worn out anyway ( thanks to my kids!) But I refuse to give up hope! JMHO- Off my soapbox now! Peace, KC
