I hope someone can post the 2013 cruise Q & A. For those who weren't there, I just wanted to write about one portion that has really stuck with me the last few days. I forget what the question was because Kid playfully went off topic on many, but what he said in one response really struck me. He spoke about how he had the merchandise that was being sold on the cruise sent to him (I'm not sure if it was during the cruise or prior). He then took a look at the flip flops and asked how much they were being sold for and was told $25. He then said (I have to paraphrase here since I wasn't taking notes and I had been drinking) that there was no way he was going to sell them for that. He pointed out that people had been saving for this cruise, this was their vacation, and in no way was he going to nickel and dime them on the merchandise. He immediately ordered the price slashed to $15. DONE!
I remember Kid saying in the past how he took his then young son to the circus and couldn't believe the price of the merchandise-inferring he couldn't afford to buy his son the stuff that was being peddled. Kid remembers how hard it is to watch every single penny. It goes to show that it's true-"you can't buy cool". How many artists stop and think about the fans like that?
