Chiba,

Unfortunately, you saying it's so doesn't actually make it so.

Does in this case. Stir the Pot

If they can't be "The Ventures", I wonder if they can be "Not The Ventures"? Can't say it's false advertising as it's says in the name they're not the Ventures. Maybe they could be stopped for using the Ventures name to their benefit, but still it would be awesome.

Also, if anyone is interested, I'm thinking of starting a band called "Not The Beatles"... Smile

One of these days I’m going to start a band called Not the Mach III. The beauty of it is, when people hear us they will concur; “that band is definitely not the Mach III”. Smile

Paranoid

One of the guys called in sick. Smile

Leon says on faceplace that the band is alive and well. I’m sticking with Leon . The baton has been rightfully passed . They have a new LP out on the Hi-Tide label .

Ya know , I can still go out and see/hear the COUNT BASIE ORCHESTRA, the Duke Ellington Ensemble and Maynard Ferguson Orchestra- they are keeping the spirit and portfolio alive. Dick Dales son goes out and plays with his dad’s former members and he is keeping the spirit and the portfolio alive. Where I come from , I’ve often worked and recorded the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra and though that “band” is still together after 150 years , no original members are remaining but they are still keeping the spirit and the portfolio alive. WE SHOULD ALL BE SO LUCKY.

That sort of circles back to my original post in this thread; is a band the members, or the concept? At what point does a band quit being its original self? There are all sorts of answers, and I’m not about to say it’s one way or the other. Ultimately, it’s in the eye of the beholder.
u
If Paul and Ringo hired a couple of people and toured as the Beatles; how legit would that be? It would obviously attract an audience, but would it be the Beatles? Were the Beatles ever the same after Brian Epstein died? One could argue that one either way.

I wish Leon T. and company, the best.

There's quite a few lawyers in this thread. If all the band members are dead, the band is no longer active. Simple as. If a bunch of dudes want to get together and play Ventures tunes then it's a tribute act.
