All we're saying is that it might not be enough yet, Willie.
Skeptics might also suggest that a greener-than-thou rock 'n' roll band is a highly relative concept. A true ecological troubadour would simply swear off the strobe lights and JumboTrons and stay home strumming acoustic guitar ditties for neighbors in the dark.
The same goes for rock fans, even those responsible enough to carpool in their Subaru to the show: they will have to stare down the contradictions between planetary patriotism and the desire for a rocking good time â€” at least until someone invents a biomass-fueled cigarette lighter to thrust aloft during encores.
It's possible that the greenest thing they're doing -- and it's definitely something -- is educating concertgoers and raising awareness through eco-village setups at shows, with information booths and so on.
We at EcoGeek aren't prepared to give up our rock, but we are ready to hear from readers about tours that seem to be legitimately greening themselves -- or trying harder than most. What've you got for us?
