  1. Wasn't he chuckling when he said 'surprise'? Bound to be Tracks 2 or BITUSA boxset which have been rumoured and talked about for the last couple of years. I'd be...well...surprised, were the next project to be a true surprise.
  2. Top 10: 1. Bob Dylan - Rough and Rowdy Ways 2. The Strokes - The New Abnormal 3. Bruce - Letter for You 4. Badly Drawn Boy - Banana Skin Shoes 5. Fontaine's DC - A Hero's Death 6. Rose City Band - Summerlong 7. The War on Drugs - Live Drugs 8. Doves - The Universal Want 9. Phoebe Bridgers - Punisher 10. Fleet Foxes - Shore
  3. Unless you're taking things to the extreme through medical advice or precaution, such as being confined to your house, I would have thought that bio secure bubbles and being filmed in a major tv network studio with all the PPE and testing would be one of the safest places you could be. You would be more at risk walking down the US equivalent of a high street. Promise61 is making it sound as if the band have been wrestling members of the public in a supermarket with the ventilation turned off.
  4. On the performance of Ghosts; what the hell happens around the 3.53 mark? Even the stand-in bassist looks slightly embarrassed to be a part of it.
  5. Hmmm, Ghosts took a bit of a butchering. Still, I'll See you in my dreams was great.
  6. The allegations don't really bother me - it's not as if he's a brexiteer or anything like that. Not convinced by this album on first listen - but Birmingham is a neat tune. It's certainly not as good as Ashes/Fire - probably the last low key Ryan Adams record.
  7. Will this be the first E Street gig without Garry? Big miss particularly given his playing on the record.
  8. Very good. Were you not tempted to start off with a version of the White Album?
  9. An orchestral Christmas album? A duet with Michael Buble? Bruce and Susan Boyle perfoming a cover of Mariah Carey's All I Want for Christmas? All sounds delightful.
  10. I dropped my ticket that I had put in my back of my jeans' pocket on the outskirts of the 02. Fortunately a few minutes later i realised and retraced my steps and found it in a puddle! Great night even allowing for the shortened Magic era setlists.
  11. I've watched the film twice and I think it's a missed opportunity. We don't get much of the band interaction - despite so much emphasis on how the album was recorded collectively - aside from a brief snippet at the start when they try and work out the chords / timing. Indeed his cousin gets as much -if not more - air time. Bruce's faux intellectual schtick worked far better on the Western Stars film and there's only so much drone footage of a snowy New Jersey farmstead that you can look at. The Blood Brothers documentary is superior despite the band's obvious discomfort in the dy
  12. Is there anyone that has yet to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of fame? If so, raise your hands. I've been informed that i'm being inducted next year which is a great honour.
