In fact, if major venues are soon pre-equipped with holographic equipment, beaming a zombie John Lennon into simultaneous nationwide concerts could be much cheaper than humping a band of living jerks around the country on a tour bus. And, fuck it, this slope can be as slippery as we want to make it: will label suits still fight so hard to keep their wards from mixing booze and pills if there's easier cash in the afterlife? If the industry could murder Katy Perry tomorrow and make twice as much money off her, don't you think they'd do it in a heartbeat?
How tragic: in death, a slain rapper will become indirectly responsible for the music industry murdering countless stars.
