I believe there was even a Facebook petition.
I'll join in with the shaking my fist at Lou for abandoning us, although he earns a bit of a reprieve for making all those metal fans come undone over Lulu. And no I have no issue with metal or it's fans)
However, in Europe it's a different story, as at 70 Lou is still at it, and by all accounts putting on a more than reasonable show. I'll still reserve the right to shake my fist at the dirty rotten bastard, but must admit that without Lou I wouldn't be playing guitar, and that fifty plus years in the music business is something. He has maybe earned the right?
Well, let's just say that maybe we miss you a little Lou, all the way out there in Europe... but can still appreciate you getting on getting on.
Some people like to go out dancing, people like us....
