Rufus Wainwright

Hey

I just wondered if there were any Rufus Wainwright fans here, usually when I mention him to most people I get blank looks followed by "who?".

I'm just wondering 'cause I went to see him at Birmingham Symphony Hall the other night and he was amazing!

I had heard a few of his songs and didn't pay much attention until I saw him on the Frank Skinner show and fell in love with the tune he played. I took the name of it down and said I would check out some of his stuff. I still haven't. I really should, I've been hearing a lot about him recently.

I absolutely love Rufus. I've been a fan of his for a couple years, and finally got to see him last October. Solo, no backing band -- just him and a piano, and occasionally he played acoustic guitar. It was marvelous. His voice is amazing, and it really, really highlighted it. I am dying to see him again.

That must have been fantastic! I mean, his band are great... but just Rufus... wow! His voice is amazing.... actually no, he is amazing!

I'm resurrecting this thread because I just recently fell in love with Rufus' music. I love Want Two. Agnus Dei is just breathtaking.

i read an article about him once - something about him being addicted to either speed or crystal meth for so long, and going literally blind for a few days because of his drug abuse....i mean, the dude lost his sight! i cannot fathom how fucked up you must be for that to happen. needless to say, it was a very troubling time. i am not making this up either - i think it was on the guardian.co.uk site a few months back.

not familiar with his music, although he seems to be in the same mold as Ed Harcourt, who is pretty decent.

I've downloaded a few tracks from each album... and WOW... his covers are also phenomenal. I'm beginning to favor his version of "Hallelujah" to Jeff Buckley's. His voice just has so much finesse and soul at the same time.
