If you've ever seen the 1983 US festival. It is headlined by David Lee Roth with Van Halen.
300,000 people seem to be hanging on every word David Lee Roth says. They put their hand in the air when he tells them and sings when he wants them to sing along. There's a hell of a lot more to persuading and seducing to get someone to buy. But that's pretty damn impressive.
Here's a good example: Lawton Chiles was speaking on TMN about Bruce Springsteen and how he tells a story in his songs.
Example: Born to run.
Lawton played the song and also provided the lyrics. I never realized the
"Power Words" and "Word Pictures" Springsteen used through out that song and many of his songs.
The Rolling Stones have been touring stadiums for decades. If Mick and the boys don't know how to captivate an audience I don't know who the hell does.
Think these guy's could put some lines down?
