It’s no wonder. After all, what do you give the people that provide you with dates for great acts like Guns N’ Roses and Peter Gabriel? The people who spend each and every day processing dates for George Strait, alphabitizing the cities for Dave Matthews Band and checking on the support for Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers? In short, what do you give people who already have everything they could ever want?

You can forget about food and all those special holiday gift packages. At we have more fruitcakes and nutcases than we know what to do with. And you can hold back on the liquor. We get no kick from champagne and whisky don’t make us frisky. Instead, we drink from the spiritual ambrosia that drips from the schedules for Pearl Jam and Bryan Adams. We are quenched.

And you can stop already with the Internet porn. When, through the course of a day, you deal with as many booking agents and managers as we have so that we may bring you the listings for Insane Clown Posse, John Tesh and Richard Cheese & Lounge Against The Machine, nothing shocks you any more. Besides, when you get right down to it, we originally uploaded most of the porn in the first place.

Yes, it’s a tough question. What to give the folks at, the people who work their fingers to the bone 365 days per year so that you can have the routings for Erasure, Gallagher and that great road show, ? What could we possibly want?

Hmmm… On second thought, how about a pizza, a bottle of good bottle of Scotch and a copy of the latest Playboy? After all, December 25th is a holiday and if you think we’re going to spend Christmas looking at tour dates, you’re crazy.
