Quoted from Captain_Howdy:
Crue, why anyone would release Rush is a very questionable and quite poor research...
But I reckon the license is dirt cheap.
Loads of bands that should get a treatment before a virtually unknown band like Rush.
Van Halen, Queen etc... Even more modern stuff like Rammstein would sell way better.
This is the wrongest thing anyone has ever said on Earth.
You do some research. You’ll realize Rush fans are ultra passionate 45-60 white male nerds with money….aka the exact person who would buy a pinball machine based on a theme they love.
Rush is also worshipped by every rock musician & actors like Jack Black and Pail Rudd. More rich guys with room for pins.
Rush pinball doesn’t need to appeal to millions…just a few thousand Rush fans will make it a success for Stern.
Arguing “bigger” bands is irrelevant. Beatles is bigger. Fans don’t want a pin. Aerosmith is bigger. Fans don’t want a pin.
Rush fans want a pin.
