sorry, that's the whole point I do not understand.
So, is the reason you won't share with the people that requested it because:
1) out of respect to Dave Lepard and his family, or
2) becasue it makes you feel better that you have it and other don't
Clearly from your response above it is choice 2)
Hiding behind the 'respect for DL' aspect makes it even more disrespectful now that you have even said yourself you are doing it becasue it makes you feel better that you have it and others dont.
Anyway, each to their own.....

Hugs, kisses and love /Fobylicious.
Wow, you're a bigger fan me then.
Sounds like highschool all over again.
Simple..... if the band didn't want these discussions on the offical forum then they could simply delete them. Problem solved.
I doesn't worry me if they do delete these threads becasue i'm not actually after the demos. The only reason I said anything is becasue of the elitest attitude of some of people on here... that is what annoys me.
If you have the stuff and were given that by the band then just say nothing. Saying 'I've got them but I won;t share them' just makes you look like a brat.
... but I still haven't heard how it is disrespectful wanting to hear than bands 'old' demos.
To me it just sounds like "I have them ,but I don't want you to have them"
New demos, yes I compeltely understand, because they are potential upcoming releases and no band would want their future material released mainly for commercial and copyright purposes.
Old demos, well... that's where the band came from and I can understand how big fans of a band find it exciting to uncover the past of their idols. Hardly disprespectful IMO.
In saying that... I'm not actually after the demos myself... I just find the whole argument frustrating and can't see the reasons why people won't share old material (even though the stuff is already out there in cyberspace)
so if demos are not to be spread... how did you all get them? even for you to get them they must have been spread to you, right?
....and I don't see how keeping them to yourself shows more respect than sharing? Selling them... yes I understand but giving them to other people, I don't see how this is disrespectful.
if people dont trade them freely, you will find people will jst end up selling them, and making the 'disrespect' far worse.
I think people are actually showing more respect wanting to hear what the band did in their early days, and not just what a record label released.
just my thoughts.
They are some awesome tunes... just the way I like my music.
Plenty of sleaze with some nasty attitude!
Do you have any demo or cd we can buy?
Keep it up!

I'm PM'd Peter London to find out about the HCS tour a while abck, and he while they are not doing that, they are actually looking into an Aussie crashdiet tour. Hopefully somethin good comes from that.
I think HCS will get a good turn out. I'm only doing Melbourne. Would have loved to have done syndey aswell, but I'm already doing Melborune-Sydney-Perth for Bon Jovi the week before so money may be a little short.

The only problem would be unlike the US or Europe, it's hard to line up a lot of dates (even for major bands), is there much of a scene anywhere else apart from Melbourne and Sydney?
I'm from Adelaide and I think they'd get a good crowd here. I'm talking for a club show.... They're not gonna pull a thousand people, but maybe a couple of hundred. Crucified Barbara pulled 200+. They'd definitely need to focus on melbourne where they'd probably pull 500.
There is a club here in Adelaide that just play glam/sleaze/hair metal after midnight. I went there on the weekend and it was pumping.... maybe 150-200 people.... and that's with no band - just music playing and beer flowing. I was amazied at seeing all the 18-20 year olds dressed up like it was 1986 all over again. I haven't seen hair that big in a long time.
If anything I would be hesitant about Sydney. I went over for Stevie Rachelle / TUff... and Sydney was dead. Not sure if the turn out to bands is always like this, or this was jsut a once off.
With HCS coming in february, I think it would give agood indication as to whether crashdiet would be successful over here. If Crucified Barbara can do it, then I'm sure crashdiet could do it.
i thought that the issues we were discussuing were related to the topic.
"bring crashdiet to austalia -> there is no glam scene here -> yes there is, what about the bands like..."
in my mind that is still on topic.

I wish i lived in sweden lol.
The glam scene in Australia is ok. Bands like Deadthings, Hell City Glamours, Diamond Sins, Sebasrocekts, Million Dollar Whores.... are all keeping the torch burning. Do you ever check out any of these local bands?
i thought there may have been some sort of symbolism behind the combination of circles and crosses in that configuration.
if anyone knows any more about it please add your views.

I think it is a thread about this somewhere.. Please search before you make a thread.
Ummm... I did do a search and I can't find any search results related to this topic.
I could have guessed it represents crashdiet, but I was after the meaning behind it. It must have been derived from some meaning.
If you have a link for the thead, please post the link. Thanks.
