Airbag is an interesting track. I expected Yorke to murder me with falsetto. Chris Martin would have used falsetto here. Yorke didn't. A good move.

Didn't know you were in Europe following Porcupine Tree around a bunch of festivals.

I saw the jazz fusion band Return To Forever. Oh. My. God. You will never see more talented musicians in your entire life. Bassist Stanley Clarke is my new god.

Go post this on EYKIW and see how many people tell you Adam Clayton is actually 10x more talented.

You lucky bugger.

After the awesome EITS and PT gigs this year, I need more live music. Curse being stuck down the arse end of the world!

He's done some interesting things, but as far as bass guitarists go, he's at the very least average, if not below average. Not notable at all.

I wish I had better seats though! For a band such as REM... practically my 2nd favorite after U2, I want to be able to experience them from up close. But it seems close to impossible to get those orchestra/GA tickets from ticketmaster even if I try for the tickets the second they are posted online! Fucking scalpers who hog online sales, have no interest in the band but are there to simply make ridiculous profit on ebay can go to fucking hell!!! Oh well. Sorry for the rant.

See, Zoots, this is why you need to become a music prick like me and go to small shows that don't sell out fast and tend to do GA.

And PFan, agreed. I feel like Adam really had some potential developing on Pop, but I can't figure out where the fuck it's gone over the last decade.

Honestly, I'm willing to bet that since his best bass parts are from records that didn't sell as well, they think he should just play simpler lines.

Ha! I've heard parts of Karma Police before, thanks to the Derrick Comedy skit it featured in.

Wow, how retarded is that argument if they really think that way?!

Yeah, but then they seem to be aware that Gloria, the song where he gets to show off, is the one song from October that people beyond rabid fans actually remember.

But I wouldn't put anything past U2 today. They probably think "keep it simple, stupid" is a great ideology for staying the biggest band in the world. Don't want to confuse the market with art!

Hahaha! Wow, it's actually sad but what you're saying might be true.
