they have earned their retirement and went out on top. They have been legends to me since 1979. A little quick of an exit for such a distinguished career, announce in late January, hey the last time the 3 of us are ever on the east coast again will be in five months, but if that's it, that's it. I think I like the way the Crue is going out, tons of shows, tons of advance notice, definitive retirement announcement.
I think the reason there has been no official retirement announcement is because the band themselves doesn't even know for sure that they are done. They may be done with the big tours but probably haven't ruled out releasing new music and playing special, limited dates in certain cities.
Right. People just tend to go overboard with the little bit they've actually come out and said.
