It's a cliche (i.e., a timeworn truth) within the the pop music business,
at every level from touring megahit bands to cover bands playing in bars,
that most audiences want to hear they stuff they know and like. It
doesn't matter how good you are, you don't get invited back if you play
len (bar band drummer for too many years).
