are they moving forward?  are they creating something that is 
stimulating in the here and now?  or is it regurgitating material 
from a different time and space that we have attached positive 
feelings to, and we feel some need to go back to that headspace?  (go 
see 'almost famous'...it's kinda like that)

I don't have any problem with option 1...option 2 becomes 
questionable...especially at the current ticket prices.  but, 
hey...look at the lemmings go!  sold out!  woo hoo!

no, it's definitely not an age thing.  If Eno was performing locally, 
i'd pay a good amount of money to see him.  Or Klaus Schultz, or alot 
of other people who aren't playing a greatest hits set.

go for it.  all the best.
