A very robust performance from FZ and the boys.

The Tubes were superb and Gabriel introvertedly piss-poor

Anybody else there...?

Views?

Well lads and lasses, I thought I was joining a 'gathering' of Zappa fans [not sure what the collective noun of Zappa fans is....]

No replies

Shameful

Yes, shameful

Sorry man, I was a year too young (14) and stupid. I was at the first led zep gig 1979.
Tubes, yes I guess they would have been great. I like So and Us by gabriel a lot, he hadn't hit his straps yet.

Peter Gabriel seems as commercially-minded as Phil Collins ever was, but aiming at a "hipper" (more phony) audience.

I tried to start a thread on the Zappa Albums section about the Knebworth Concert and the resultant products being offered up from it but didn't get much of a response either. I'll bump it up if you want to check it out.

Some threads just don't take. Sometimes it's because the thread sucks, but usually it's just because it's not noticed by anyone who would bother to reply to it... and then it get buried.

But if the thread dies and the person who started the thread gets all pissy and hissy, it doesn't matter whether the thread sucked to begin with. It sucks now, and that's all that matters...

Agreed. I 'd still like to know something about the Knebworth products though. I guess no review is a bad review.

Hipper maybe, but the songs on those two albums are shitloads better than anything Collins did. And Gabriel did masses for world music, e.g. salif keita, youssou n dour, womad etc. Very active early anti-apartheid campaigner too. Far from phoney. YMMV.

I couldn't of said it any better, myself.

I saw PG twice in '93. The arena show was amazing. He sampled the audience.

World music? You mean like Weather Report?

I suppose you're going to tell me that Biko has more integrity than It's Gonna Get Better?

Or that Paul Simon's Graceland is NOT blaxploitation?

Or that Bob Geldof saved the children of the world?

(If only Bob Geldof could write a decent tune....
Do They Know It's Christmas? What a load of shit)
:mrgreen:

IGGB is a Genesis song; not solo Phil. You look like an ass when you don't check the facts. :roll:

I knew that. I didn't need to check it. It's still Phil Collins.

Would you prefer if I used Susudio? That would be pushing it.

Do They Know It's Christmas sucks but there are a lot of Boomtown Rats songs that are pretty keen.

Yeah. Susudio would have been better. Or the more fitting: 'I Don't Care Anymore.'
