    I see them bringing out the Celtic harp for the climax, where the miniature Stonehenge drops down from above.

    If you look at the audience and keep time with some part of your body you’re 90% there. If you can manage to look like your having fun then you’re 100% there.

    Hmmm.

    Not one of the bands people aspire to the stage manner of dresses like they just walked up to stage from their living room on a Tuesday evening.

    How do I connect that to the "it's about the music, man, and I just want to be comfortable" threads.

    Maybe looking like that helps them loosen up and have some fun.

    Grimacing? Fierce concentration. Standing on one leg until that leg and arm go numb?

    Loosen up, fellas. Live a little. Strike a pose. Get lost in the music. Interact with each other and the crowd. Trust me. That's a lot more fun.

    the cool trivia on Joey is that he is the nephew of someone famous... I first met him when he was in the loudest folk band in america... he had a bf super, gold top les paul and a gold strat...

    he was THE COOLEST guitar player in that band... the bass player was Chris 'the mountain' Whelan and he played a righteous tele bass... the initial drummer in that band was Pete Thomas who left (major passport trauma) and ended up with Declan McManus who became Elvis Costello....

    smallest of worlds...

    I always thought John Entwistle was the coolest guy in the Who- you've got Animal back on the drums, a singer who whips his mic around like a lasso, a guitarist who jumps all over the place and is liable to smash the damn thing if the mood strikes him. So what do you do? Just stand there blitzkrieging away at your bass, drinking vodka out of the water bottle on your mic stand while you let the madness swirl around you.

    I really wish I could move like this.



    I wouldn't do it, I just wish I could.
    (TBH I did try it once in the privacy of my own home and almost dislocated a knee joint)

    I think this young lady is way past Taylor Swift and Katy Perry with her songwriting and passion. I can't imagine singing and moving like this but I'm glad someone can do it. And it's fun to watch.

    Don't be too hard on the guy.
    It was his first gig after he met a strange guy at some crossroads.
    He was promised unlimited talent & wealth, but part of the deal was he had to wear those haunted trousers.
    They are truly the work of the Devil, they are POSSESSED!!!
