Actually, I did hear that the same Ganey is quite a music fan. Mtl, radio host, a guy named Melnick does sports but has been involved in promoting a lot of acts in Mtl over the years, from punk to what he calls alternative country. He had a singer/songwrtiter named Tom Russell in studio one day, talking about having met and gotten to know Gainey on the road.
At a point in Dallas, having a lot of time on his hands esp. on the road, he would frequent a lot of shows, esp. what you'd find at the club rather than arena level.
Just some vague tidbits I've heard and it stayed there, probably blocking something I needed to know.
