You sometimes find that with bands/artists, particularly older ones, some fans will complain that the singers don't sound like they did back in the 70s or whatever. Well, obviously! When humans age, their vocal cords age as well. It upsets me when people forget that. If they sound a bit deep or a bit gravelly, so be it. They might not sound like they did thirty years ago, but they're still the same people who wrote the stuff. That's my way of looking at it.
I could not agree more.

He's sounding a bit more gravelly these days as the tour draws to a close, yes. It has been a long tour. His voice has been pretty well shot since 1985 though. He really threw it out on the Pros & Cons tour. Didn't help it much either by trying to hit the same notes on subsequent solo albums and tours either. Honestly, there's some shows from '87 where he sounds rather the same as he does today. If it hadn't been for that 1984 leg of Pros & Cons, I think he would sound a lot better these days.

Oh, no. I was contrasting the way I feel about Elton vs Roger, not commenting on your like or dislike of Elton. I know you like him.

You're paranoid tonight.

I'm not paranoid, just ever vigilant, because you never know who is watching you, or plotting against you....that's not paranoid, that's just being prepared. I have lived near major bodies of water for a few years in a row now, are you telling me it's wrong to have a defense plan against an amphibious assault aimed at me???? No way.

She was also pissed that the sax parts weren't right.
I'll have to watch it again, but I didn't pick up on mistakes on the sax and guitar. Maybe the guitarist (David K.) missed one note somewhere, but overall he was spot on.

I would go with the singing psychic every time.

You were inhaling at the Police show, weren't you?

What's better...to be a singing psychic, or a psychic singer? The difference is a subtle one, granted, but nontheless, I present you with the question.

Ian's so awesome, even if he does hit a bum note every now and then. I heard him flub once during Us And Them, that's it. And I think that was down to nerves anyway. He never misses a note.

He does spell Ottawa wrong, though.

Ha. No, but, the concert was at Wrigley Field, so I was surrounded by....wait for it......grass! Ba-dum-dum.

I do have a friend who loves to pretend to be insane, and when I did move to Redondo Beach a few years ago, his first question was not about the apartment, or neighborhood, it was if I realized that I was leaving myself wide open for a nautical attack. Ah, the company I keep.

The comment re: the guitarist, I said he was technically fine playing, but that he lacked the soul and balls of Gilmour, IMO. The sax thing, my daughter plays sax, she's the one who noticed it, and she's absolutely anal about things like that. She can't remember for sure what part it was now (and neither can I), but she thinks it was that a bit of the sax part was left out of Us and Them.

Dave K. and Snowy use different guitars than Gilmour, so the tone might be a bit off. A lot of hard core PF fans nickname David Kilminster "David Gilmourinster" - that's how awesome he is.

I'll contemplate that as I drift off to sleep. A psychic singer would be interesting...he/she could dictate the setlist based on a quick emotional read of the crowd
