Re: NEW SONGS!

Reminds me of the way that Frank Zappa would turn offhand quips from his band into songs, eg. "Why Does It Hurt When I Pee?"

I assume the lyrics on this version are Steinman's originals, which :von: described as "...illegal"?

Re: All about that bass

Miami, which I believe was the last gig with the PE before the promoters dropped nuts and cancelled the tour, has an excellent sound and Suzanna's keyboards and BVs are very clear (esp on Ribbons). Andreas and Tim are cutting some tasty guitar noises and Tj is really adding something - although I wo...

Patricia Morrison did her job and did it well. Her job was not playing bass, it was baby-sitting Von on promo tours to make sure he didn't end up on the old you-know-what again.

When they used to go on at Robert Fripp to get back together the original lineup of King Crimson (when Greg Lake was still alive), his response was: I would if I thought they could still play the material as well as the new band, but I don't. This would be my response to any idea of Hussbag rejoinin...

Kind of funny about how one of those reviews was disappointed that the big anthems weren't extended a bit longer. I'm reminded of Von saying (maybe on the website?) that the good Doktor isn't good at adding another verse or chorus on the fly or settling into an extended jam. (Although maybe given mo...

The instrumental was definitely played, as was Flood II. Von definitely stared at the lighting guy and mouthed WHAT THE f**k on a few occasions. But he was into it. He was doing all these "evil Thunderbird puppet moves" that really showed his frontman skills are more valuable than his voice. Speakin...

I think that if we were ever going to get official recordings of the Pearson-era songs we'd have had them by now.
Er, we did get an official recording of one of the Pearson-era songs (although not a Pearson song).

So Chris is moving to a "twelfth-man" position because Von wants to... play too many gigs?

I don't see why Von's voice deteriorating would be a problem. Leonard Cohen, his hero, had a voice which degenerated from slightly nasal to a barely audible grumble over his career, and that was all part of his charm.

Would be much more surprising if they would NOT play the cities mentioned above, but where does that quote come from? https://www.facebook.com/events/845798059093784/ Their performance should be more or less the same level compared to 2012, unless something significant has happened since 2017.
