So needless to say facebook has become the biggest social networking site on the internet. Almost everyone has a facebook page. The site gives you feeds on your friend’s activities, displays recent photos taken by everyone you know, and basically keeps you up to date on every single thing that your aquiantances are doing. Facebook pretty much killed any private life you wanted to have. And now it’s getting even worse. Parents, who used to be technologically incapable of making a facebook page have figured it out and are keeping track of their out of control college kids. Companies even use facebook to look at potential employees for background checks. Basically, anyone can see what you are doing and how you live. It’s actually kind of creepy. My advice to you is if you have a facebook page, make sure your page is set to private and you only add people you know and don’t mind sharing every single thing that you do to them, because facebook can get you into a lot of trouble.

“How has facebook gotten you into trouble?” There’s some interesting predicaments you can find yourself in.

Listen to how our intern got “in trouble” from a picture of him posted on facebook.

A led Zeppelin tribute band, Led Zepagain. This is acceptable since Led Zeppelin doesn’t tour anymore

A Muse tribute Band?!? Seriously? These guys are still pretty new to the music scene and playing sold out shows! You are a cover band my friend!

There have been a lot of amazing bands that have come through that have been influential to people around the world and were the voice for generations. But as we all know, rockers get old, they retire, they die, and the band is no longer able to perform and write. However, a great band’s music is never forgotten and their messages are carried into the next generation of music fanatics. People will form what is known as tribute bands to help carry on the music written by the artists that influenced their lives heavily. This is a great idea, to keep the music going when the artists can no longer do it. You pay tribute to the music that you love and keep it going for others to enjoy. However, you can’t pay tribute to a band that is still writing, touring, and have their own fan base! That’s like holding a funeral for someone who is still alive and kickin’ it. It’s not right to call yourself a tribute band in this situation! You are a cover band. That’s not a bad thing. Playing your favorite artist’s music is awesome, but you are not paying tribute to them because they are still alive and rocking out!

Let’s pay tribute to a city boy, born and raised in South Detroit
