Interesting:

On Saturday, the clock for Guitar Center, which began in 1959 as a store selling home organs in Hollywood, finally ran out when the company filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection as music lovers moved their shopping online during the coronavirus pandemic.

Tragic and sad.
Here in Ireland Musician's have been out of work since the lock downs started and the pubs have been totally destroyed. What’s going on right now is utter madness.

Get ready for mandatory vaccinations next boys and girls. Confused

Sign of the times. The pandemic may have brought it to a head but they were struggling before.

I haven’t heard a live band since February. Our local pub used to have sessions every Tuesday night and about 10:30pm the owner would come out form behind the bar with nibbles to eat for everyone. Always a good night to have.

Regards
Sharp.
