RE: NO MORE LOYALTY!

you know, posts like yours really puts the cheese in my doodle.
Twisted Sister is all about doing charity work....the NYC concert this past weekend and auction raised a lot of money for charity....but that doesn't mean they should work for free because the fans in Hudson won't drive more than 10 miles to see them. If the Poughkeepsie fans are such SMFs...why didn't they take the train down to NYC for all of the shows that they've done there since The Chance?
(a few of those weren't sold out--shame on us
) I have yet to see TS play a show in New York on this reunion tour that received the responses comparable to what they get in foreign countries. Twisted has played NY more times than anywhere else since 2003- NYC, Long Island, Poughkeepsie, plus all the tri-state area shows--- doesn't say much for the Poughkeepsie fans either if they won't leave their burrough to see their favorite band.
Where you in NYC for the charity benefit this past weekend? I was. So were about 30 people I know just from this Slamboard--from Connecticut, Massachusetts, various parts of NY,Maryland, Illinois, Virginia, Pennsylvania, Quebec, the UK, even some fans from Brazil were there. Those are the SMFs. TS played their first show ever in Buenos Aires--were those fans bitter that they never stopped in their country before? Hell, no. They were as passionate, loyal and grateful as I've ever seen.
And you have the audacity to complain that Twisted Sister, who is getting to headline some of the biggest heavy metal festivals in the world, won't play your small dive in Poughkeepsie again? Very few cities had a return gig on their reunion tour, other than Vegas and NYC. Reminds me of a guy that used to be on this board--he cried and cried, post and post, about poor little Poughkeepsie--and when TS finally played there on the reunion tour, he didn't even show his sorry ass up. Pathetic.
No more loyalty for you? Fine, but don't call yourself an SMF. The real friends of Twisted Sister know that the band does more for their fans than any other band out there.
