I think I saw one of these knock off bands a year or two ago performing in a city park venue as the Coasters. It was free to the public. Actually, I wondered during the entire performance if these guys looked old enough to be who they said they were. AMG says all but one of the original performers are dead, since 2001. It also said each of the original performers have toured seperately with differing lineups.

I think I'll start my own Mountain or Foghat band and tour the county fair circuit. I know, you prolly wonder "why not a 'prog' band?", but I'd actually like to play in front of an audience and not have to tour Europe to do so.
