my guess is that a veteran wouold be someone who's been arouond muliple decades, either touring or with multiple albums or has worked w multiple bands over the years, ie not saying its him in NO way shape nor form but grohl, alone, would be a veteran in my mind, nirvana, foo fighters, worked w a variety of artists. so maybe soomeone of that caliber?
And the Newbie is oof to a great start with this excellent question. I have no idea to be honest with you. you could say someone who has been around for about 15 years or more but I wouldn't consider Poison a veteran act. who knows
It's funny how everything was roses when we held on to the guns.
I would think it would be of the Talking Heads, REM, Springsteen, etc. variety. But I think early 90's acts would qualify as well (Soundgarden, Pearl Jam, Smashing Pumpkins). It's tough to speculate in this case though. I'd say REM would have been the perfect guess for this act, but I just don't think GV would book them to play a 3rd festival in 2 months.
Yikes, that person who said Santana might be there. He would qualify as a veteran act, as well.

Since music if a form of art,
does 10 years + 4 great albums = veteran ?
Or does 4 years + 10 shitty albums = veteran?
