I think most musicians is kinda amused by it. They have fans that are playing their songs and doing exacly what they have done, but of course in a cheaper version. I would at least feel honored that anyone would love my songs enough to make a whole tribute band, then it doesn't really matter weather they suck balls or they are great musicians. Tribute bands can be really really great if you ask me.

However i have yet to go to a KD Tribute show :P

Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. I'm sure any act that inspires tribute bands of itself must feel very honored to know they are as iconic as that. From the clip of The Coven that I saw, that looks like a very sincere and serious attempt to capture that rare magic that you can only get at a King Diamond show.

He probably thinks that they are cool. On a personal note I cant stand cover or tribute bands because I feel musicians should be creating music and not doing something that has been done and released but that is just me. Why spend all your time playing covers (unless its your only form of income) when you could be making your own music , I just dont get it.

I feel very much the same way. if I'm going to play a cover (and we do....Blood For Master plays a cover of Pentagram's Sign Of The Wolf) I like to play a more powerful version of it, not simply recreate the original. to dedicate your entire musical identity to someone else's material, as good as that material may be, just feels like a waste of time to me.

Exactly Az if you are gonna do a cover make it your own make it heavier, softer, put your own take on it etc...

I get it. I would do it. It's not about creating your own music. You can't really judge it on the same artistic scale. It's like debating good and bad. a reglous person is going to rate those along the scale of good and evil while someone who doesn't believe in a god is going to be rating good and bad on a whole different scale.

Of course if your puting in on the same scale as the top being expressing your own artistic musical voice it's going to look weak but if you look at it from the view of guys who want to have some fun and play some tunes that they love, grown up with, music that has changed there lives then in one view i find more respect for these guys and they are completing the goal set out while other bands and struggling to get there music heard.

It's all a matter of how you look at it. The world isn't filled with small things and tall things. Those only exist once you start comparing, judging, and competing.

Some people might say a computer mouse is "small" but i say it's the perfect fit. It's all about how you look at it.

Tuwin, I couldn't agree with you more man! I have great respect for musicians who take the time to show homage to their idols, especially when they do it well. Zappa Plays Zappa is a perfect example of this.

that's an excellent example...between that and what Tuwin posted, I can see what you guys are talking about. I tend to think that if I'm going to put in the effort, I want to put my own stuff out there. that doesn't mean that doing covers is a waste of effort, just a different approach to putting an act together. having been a Zappa fan myself for close to forty years, I am quite familiar with Zappa's entire catalogue, and I can just imagine how insanely difficult it must be to play that stuff.

the only reason I missed the most recent Zappa plays Zappa show was because it was the same night as my band's first show.

dude...I would tremble in my boots if I had to play with Dweezil in the same building.  :-[ :-[ :-[

there are so many incredible Zappa albums, but for a good variety of musicianship, good songs, and humor I would recommend you listen to either Overnight Sensation or Apostrophe. both are from the mid-seventies, both are really funny, and both feature Frank as the main guitarist. if you check either one out, I would be interested to hear what you thought about it.

Agree 100%, cover bands over here in the UK are starving the original bands of good gig slots on Fridays/Saturdays ect because they usually bring in more people.

Zappa only had 100 or so really great albums. The rest were just mildy awesome. Check out Ship Arriving Too Late or We're Only In It For The Money/Lumpy Gravy for some real fun.
