The Necropolis of Rock

The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame is full of dead artists and some of them are rising from the grave to return, very soon, to a concert stage near you.

The "Big O" - Roy Orbison - has already staged concerts in Calgary and Edmonton and will perform in Toronto in November. Only it's not Roy Orbison. He can't play any more, he's dead. But apparently people will pay good money to attend a holographic evening of Orbison.

I don't know. It's a little too creepy for my taste.

I’ll wait until they use a hologram of a dead orchestra. Once they’ve accomplished that maybe they can come up with a hologram of dead audience members and they won’t need me.

The present age is so horrific that some folks are desperate for any kind of return to a saner time period
...although feigning it via current high-tech sorcery is a sort-of-not-too-sane way of doing so
