Jim-I would be very interested in that user-pack, and encourage you wholeheartedly to put it together. You have some tools there that are essential for performers and those who are building performance communities.
Like some others here, I do have a fondness for pop music in all it's forms, but that aside, I am profoundly troubled by the way that the machinery for mass producing and distributing music, entertainment, and other cultural items has destroyed our community traditions.
Traditions, musical, and otherwise, are shared experiences, and shared experiences are what defines community. The critical discussion here is really, "What can we do to restore and sustain our musical traditions?".
When we let those things go, we lose more that just an archive of good music, we lose what keeps us together as a society.
