''I think people in Europe, of all age groups, are still looking to seek out new music and are prepared to pay to see it, whether it has been hyped in the media or not,'' reasons Tim. ''They seem to support all forms of art and culture. I think they look upon going to a gig as a great social event, a quality night out, not just throwing money over a bar. The UK was like this in the 70s but has been in steady decline since. The whole of Europe still regards the UK as the home of Rock 'n' Roll, yet touring bands have such a hard time here getting in front of an audience. It just isn't like this abroad.''
