Good Morning:
Most people are probably of the impression that the life of a rocker is all fun and games and that when they go to a concert all wasted and trashed that the band just magically appears or something - and they seem to only care about the artists rocking the shit out of them w/ 110% - not caring, understanding or realizing that these rockers just did a show in a city the night before that also wanted 110% - and the night before that - and the night before that as well, etc.. And not to mention sound checks, band meetings, interviews and other forms of publicity and marketing.
It's hard work being a successful, sustaining rocker - especially one that tours allot and performs allot because those are the ones that an audience can count on for a great live experience (i.e. Rusted Root http://www.rustedroot.com)
So, in short, my answer to the question of the day is yes - There will be a degree of change. How many degrees and for how long? That's also up to the African governments and people as well as other outside governments and people. Hopefully, it will be sustaining.
Best intent,
John A. Conte` JR
Sewickley, Pennsylvania
