I don't mean to be rude, but Canada is really not a huge market base that anyone struggles to get into. And also he has to cross stupid border checkpoints to get there. I think increases in border security at the Canadian border has made him think ... what's the point? And I don't have any reason to believe he still does any kind of heavy drugs, but I guess that he likes an occasional joint or whatever after a show. So, he can't get caught bringing that over the border. Again, is the hassle worth it? No.
Last time I went into Canada they searched my whole car and also my laptop for child porn. It was downright ridiculous. I'll never go to Canada again after dealing with that. I'll just stay in the USA. He probably had a similar experience and said "x that ... it's not worth it."
You don't mean to be rude, but you are. Did you not mean to be ignorant also?
thank you Hal.
My contribution to this conversation is.. if he can go to little countries smaller than our Vancouver Island, what does this say about Market value? He doesnt gouge his fans like some musician/bands do. It is what it is. Its not about money. Maybe its not even about convenience...at his age.. he can do whatever the hell he wants.
As for them searching your car..dont take it personal. If you do, perhaps theres a reason for it.
We just miss ya Bob.. come on back soon!
