Bennett 2000: 176) In addition to lending intimacy to tribute band performances, smaller venues have the added attraction of charging more affordable ticket prices and being situated in easy to reach locations. The relatively low-key, affordable and accessible nature of tribute band performances has also made them highly popular among family groups. Cohen (1991) and Bennett (2000) have each noted the significance of popular music in parent–children relationships, with children often inheriting tastes in music directly from their parents.

Before establishing the Bootleg Beatles, Neil Harrison was a cast member of the US show Beatlemania in 1979 (Harrison interview 2004). Creativity and copyright In the absence of access to the original songs, tributes have also been useful for performing various types of copying. The Bootleg Beatles have provided soundtracks for television and films, ranging from direct copies to Beatleesque sounds and riffs.
