RIFF-it good. I couldn't convince some to go with me, reasons ranging to schedules to being taken aback by someone else pretending to be John, Paul , George, and Ringo.
The show ranged from every vintage from late through Nothing after would work, even though competitors will do that and even some solo to boot like Rain.
At first, I just looked briefly at the screen so not to kill the mystique, as the band members are ageing and have been at it as a group much longer than the real thing, which is always the case. Sometimes, the impersonations weren't perfect, but at least were still Northern. You have to forget that those were Yanks doing a Scouse take of what Shakespearean thespians or maybe Renaissance fair reenactors do so it's not like Madonna to put it that way!
The gear and instruments were replicas of those used in those crazy days of screaming girls, press conferences, and hotel confinements. One can hear what's playing here. I wonder what the genuine article thought of this kind of thing. The missuses even. Apple's solicitors stopped Beatlemania! From "Please Please Me" to "Taxman", many favourites were revisited, along with some banter which did break the time warp so to speak, as "John" told everyone to get out their "pocket phones" for "In My Life".
I tried filming that, but I'm no Dickie Lester! It wasn't the kind of show I would bootleg, so I'll order the album on emusic instead. So Beatle people, do try it once to see if it does the boys justice.
I feel this is living vicariously for both the players and fans. Still, it will never truly be the same. Labels: live , summer , The Beatles , tours , Tribute bands. It was the best of shows. It was the worst of shows. There are two sides to every story, yet he is being slated big time for letting people down. I can't remember the last time so much vitriol was surrounding a promoter. Even Harvey Goldsmith must have had the onus on him with Yes 's Drama tour, which had now-Asia members Steve Howe and Geoff Downes , making it a bonafide precursor to Asia if you like.
The tour suffered with Trevor Horn singing to the point he could have gotten lymph nodes going from out of key, as fans bought tickets months before the record was out assuming it was business as usual with Jon Anderson and Rick Wakeman.
Mainly at home, people were cross, but I don't remember fingers being pointed at Goldsmith directly however. Three decades on, there is no time for Asia to have another go at it here, so I have to go to the Armoury in Rochester, a free show like Albany in '07, but not the cost of travelling!
They were last in Monroe County in '06, so everyone there will be glad to see them again. If Banks can get everything organised for another show, he could compensate by getting Asia featuring John Payne in OA's stead. I won't bring up old news of the "feud" between the pair of them. I think they get on now. Just had to deal with the solicitors on the name.
He hasn't said anything yet, as he still has his hands full in getting everyone's money back. Another live open air series in town was cancelled, but due to low attendence. Check earlier posts on my lament in not getting enough acts here. Posted by John Sposato at PM 4 comments:. Icon 3 with "Live Another Day" is on the way! I'm all set with the original Icon. Labels: Asia , mp3 , music , prog. Since no one else is gonna do it, it's up to me. Haven't done this in a while. Had to get a ride there.
Well worth the trip. No meet and greet though. Maybe if I waited outside the tour bus small town , but I had to get home to bed. Before show time, fans of three to four generations flooded into the theatre.
The PA played tracks not in the setlist such as those from 's The Present. The show started with "The Voice" though the keyboards couldn't be heard as clearly as on the album Long Distance Voyager.
The last number was, as always, "Ride My See-Saw". Messrs Hayward, Lodge, and Edge were in top form, as if they weren't ageing at all. On that note, Graeme Edge did some stand-up comedy about being overs in Florida taking Viagara.
He's been in the band since day one. I couldn't find one thing wrong. I guess after doing this for over two generations, you know all the ropes! Just wish I could have met the band. As it wasn't a big area, I'm sure someone managed to manoeuvre recording the show. I could do audio, but I was too high up to do a decent video. I couldn't get away with such a thing. Labels: live , summer , The Moody Blues , tours. Friday, July 9, In Defence of Boris. Couldn't come up with anything better.
No article on my blog has gotten more response than the one I did on Boris Ignatov. Nearly everybody he asked for CDs thought he was a flim-flam man out to make a fast ruble. I can tell you hes not much different from any of us. Its just things are more limited where he is. He cares about the music enough that he wants authorised releases. Is that too much to ask? I don't mind getting pirate releases in return, as they go great in my collection and I have a few already see earlier post.
As for Boris, please give him a chance to prove himself before lashing out on him. Eric, the debt he owes you, I'll pay it when I win the lottery. I'm sure there was a misunderstanding. Even though I spent a bit getting CDs off that list, I am getting something in return. Its just tied up at "Origin Post" right now.
I have less trouble doing this with someone in Ukraine!

Their vocalist dubbed himself Midnight. Had he not been so talented, that would be sufficient reason for us to never mention Crimson Glory ever again.
However, in a rare turn of events, the band backed up their silly metal attitude with skill. Combining the complex melodies of Fates Warning with the soaring vocals of Queensryche, Crimson Glory were one of those all too often overlooked bands that helped to shape progressive metal.
However, there is more power in Midnight's high notes than the King's airy falsettos. He moves the songs as much as the instruments do, which is impressive considering the speedy gait of these power progressive tunes.
