Aaron Lee Tasjan is one of my current favorites - always say he is the Wilbury's (any or all of 'em). Just read the bio on his site and sure enough he mentions Beatles, Petty and even Jeff. www.aaronleetasjan.com/bio/
You are right, it's because of Marie's health problems. Per must have either Linnea Henriksson or Helena Josefsson, long time backing vocalists to both Roxette and his solo work. Not a big fan of either (needless to say, Marie's are some big shoes to fill).
What's funny is that he did the same as Jeff did with ELO, despite the fact that I'm sure that Per owns Roxette's naming rights. He must have done it out of respect for Marie and to warn unaware people.
just read that Amy Winehouse is going to tour. As a hologram. really?
not sure how much I would pay or how much I could cheer for a hologram band Amy's tour could convince some drunks in the audience to sober up.
the article also mentions a Roy Orbison holo tour. so I guess this is a "thing" now will a a Wilbury's holo tour be next? to cash in on the love for Tom Petty Prince?, Hendrix?, Beatles? - could give new life to Tribute Bands but I'm just not sure people will go for it
Creepy. Where's the line between life and death. I think it would give me the same feeling of uneasiness I always had as a kid when every time I looked at a dead body in it's coffin I expected them to open their eyes and start talking to me.
Obviously this is the future. I wonder if actors, musicians will start to put in their wills a wish not to be exploited in this way.
Felt the same when Natale Coe did an album of duets with her dead father.
I don't like the idea at all, what's wrong with a film?
I do quite like the idea of streaming a concert to local cinemas, people who can't get in or travel can experience it live in a kind of gig environment. But the artist/band obviously has to be pretty much alive.
It's all good entertainment, it doesn't cost a penny
I suddenly remembered the "holodeck" from the Star Trek Voyager show. a lifelike 3D experience for crew members on the Enterprise. They would go to practice before a mission or take a mental health break.
such things don't exist yet, but virtual reality gear is being developed someday maybe we could drop in to a virtual rock concert - maybe experience the time Marc Bolan played double lead guitar with Jeff on stage in Birmingham during ELO's early days
it could be a few decades yet before any non creepy version of that technology exists

Horacewimp: We are all good thanks, just wishing I could go on a foreign holiday, it’s just not worth the risk with Covid and the possibility of a 14 day quarantine, we may do some short breaks in the U.K.
