i don't mean to p*ss on anybody's parade here, honest, but some people have difficulty in letting the man move at all...if he doesn't give what you specifically go to hear, you'll say it's a botched performance...in this case, you want to hear him sing the way he did in -98 (or whatever) and if he ...

Great venue, good crowd, decent sound, great set list. Unfortunately, Eldritch’s vocal performance was very disappointing. At times, there were glimpses of The Voice, but that was all.

Re: I was wrong

I've been wreaking havoc on my brain trying to interpret this but can't come up with something that I will keep agreeing to for more than a few hours. Any helpful insight will be much appreciated Eldritch is having fun with language once again. At first you think the song is about the speaker admit...

Doktor Avalance's bass playing

We have heard many Heartlanders express their wish that Eldritch hire a live bass player to relieve the workaholic Doktor. Just to prove the democratic nature of this Heartland is there anybody out there who prefers the Doktor's playing? If so, it would be great to hear your arguments. In case Eldri...

Speaking of Doctor Jeep. Does anyone have an idea about who or what that is? Meanwhile, in the Sheraton, Doctor Jeep plays on and on and on. The closest I've got to an answer is that this is a reference to a drum machine, cf. Doktor Avalance, but that doesn't seem very satisfactory somehow. Any ide...

My top five: 1. "Fix." (With Craig Adams and Lemmy on duelling basses! "The love for the corpse for the corporation."

Yes, of course the words have to sound good and fit the music--but if that was all, Eldritch would be like 99.9% of the musicians out there--and he isn't. That's why we like him, right?
