    Apologies- upon re reading my post above, I realized that it is a curmudgeonly statement to make.
    No ill will intended.

    I suspect the arm that wears this is attached to a not so bright head.

    Not a problem. Many of us here have made a few curmudgeonly statements. Now, you kids get off my lawn! And turn your damn music down. Get a haircut too! :D

    Okay, back in '60, I thought Lawrence Welk was pretty dang good.

    And if The Ladies of Calcutta get replayed on the radio, I'll drop everything and have a good listen.

    Don't tell anyone - but - I used to be a Billy Vaughn fan too.

    I'm told there's an ABBA tribute called "Bjorn Again."

    Along similar lines: one of the all-time best record store names belongs to a shop in Toronto called "ABBA To Zappa."

    Up here in Canada, our country's most beloved band is called The Tragically Hip. There's a tribute act called Practically Hip.

    Larry beat me to it, but I'll have to add: There could a geriatric version called Arthritic Hip! :D

    Major Dudes would also be a good Steely Dan tribute band name
