Elvis Presley, Celine Dion, Elton John and now it looks like poor Michael Jackson might end up as a Las Vegas lounge act. Tsk, tsk. But I think Celine Dion made like $400 million at Caesars Palace...so, y'know, a little better than Social Security, eh?
Where might the indie heroes of today end up? Can you see Conor Oberst playing Branson, Missouri? The Arcade Fire opening for the Mormon Taberacle Choir? Wilco playing on Prairie Home Companion (NPR show)...? oh, wait, they already did that. Maybe...I dunno, Paul Draper doing advert jingles?
