    tribue bands playing gigs? Hows that news? Oh and first comment
    While I don't see it newsworthy, it's nice to see the huge influence the Chilis have had on so many people, including myself.
    In Malta? I'm from Malta! Strangely enough, I met Anthony Kiedis here in Malta a couple of months ago! Coincidence?

    Hooray for old irrevelent news!
    The quality of news here is going down. I mean seriously, who the hell wrote this? Or moreover, who the hell cares? Also, it's Chilis, not Chili's. I remember reading about a gig here once, a battle of the bands. Yeah. A battle of the bands. The thing that crap schoolboy bands do to figure out who has the most friends. Sorry, I mean who is the least crap. I mean, I've not really got anything against schoolboy bands - they're almost universally crap, but so were everyone at that age. I just really don't think it's news. I can name a great many tribute bands playing my area soon. Kounterfeit Kinks, Shine On, etc etc etc. I can name a few little local festivals that celebrate my area - the last one was headlined by acts like Tony Christie, The Twang, Yourcodenameis:Milo, etc. Acts that've been heard of. I don't like them, but people know them. Acts that've won magazine awards. All for free. Neither of those get any news. I also don't think they really should, unless there's something truly odd or amazing going on. There's hundreds of festivals that book award winning bands. Hell, there's a fair few that admit for free. The only thing that sets apart this Maltese event is just how crap it sounds for a national celebration. Also, it's really inconsistent here. You miss a lot of news that is waaaaay more important and relevant. Let's put it this way, you tend to announce support bands a lot, and yet don't really give much mention to the headliners, despite the fact that about four people will go purely for the support band. I mean, seriously. Why on earth has this made it into the news?
    just been on there website and they're @*!^, no1 can beat the real band i think tribute bands are good but they have no creativity, they just copy other peoples hard work and add a few guitar licks or a few different words ( i mean wat's the point ?!?!?)
