The band manages themselves, so changing management will not happen! Also, I guess that when you're watching "The Wall live in Berlin"-DVD, you always skip "Empty spaces" and "Young Lust"?


Ok. At least they know what they are doing then.
As for the rest of your comment, I don't know what you are talking about.
 
I do...and I think Bryans Adams choice as the singer/guitsrist on Young Lust is inspired.

No, that's snobbery.
 
My friend is going to the gig at Murrayfield, he's a fan of both Mostly Autumn and Bryan Adams. In fact, it was through him that I first heard MA. I ended up going to see MA with him when they started their show with a set of Pink Floyd covers before doing their own material, a great gig.

The Watch kicks off Tim McGraw (spaghetti country, anyone?)

Hawkwind opens for Dolly Parton (Damn! talk about Space Ritual!)

I have "Live in Pompeii". That'll do it for me. And it's not because of Bryan Adams.

Without any deeper elaboration of your statement, it just look childish.
Why not?

Anyone who doesn't at least like Evergreen has absolutely no taste, no soul. So Mr Snow Dog, you're clearly a lost cause.

They have done more great songs than almost any other band I can think of. There are very few I don't like except Pocket Watch and Science and Machinery. (And that's not just because I work with Iain Jennings, their former keyboard player!)
I have many faults. Being wrong is not one of them.

Quick geography lesson: Murrayfield is in Edinburgh and the home of Scottish rugby..  As for Mostly Autumn, i haven't got round to listening to them although being an Events Steward, there's a good chance i will be there.   You say Bryan Adams will be there too?

I still think that the possibility of Meshuggah opening for Mariah Carey and Death opening for Barbra Streisand are more intersting...

Or Opeth starting for Hilary Duff.





Well, my thoughts on it are that it'll only worsen the prog look for a bunch of pop fans who don't give a rats ass about anything prog, or reasonably complex for that matter will spread the word that this band and there kind of music sucks, and persuaded by friends a lot of people will just hate prog. Oh well.

But uhh... good for Mostly Autumn, it'll get them a quick buck and certainly won't hurt there fans view of them in any way.

The statement is not childish, but arrogant, generalizing and not very thoughtful. Arrogance is needed when it comes to Bryan Adams. Thoughtfulness is in this case not a necessary trait of an argument. I prefer oblivion...

I didn't say all Tool's fans were juvenile dipsh*ts, but that is the stereotypical group.  I mean I love Tool a lot, but have you ever been around a large group of Tool fans?  It can be quite amusing, but at the same time, some of those people are in their late 20s acting like 13 year olds.  Its like a Beavis and Butthead festival or something.

I personally think that the Bryan Adams fans will be either uninterested by Mostly Autumn, or pleasantly surprised... I always thought MA was a very pop-oriented prog, i.e., they are among the most accessible prog bands...

Nothing can be any worse. I mean that, really. It embarasses me to be Canadian and even worse from the same province as this waste of a carbon unit.

Can you tell us what Mr. Jennings is doing now (probably in a separate thread)?
After his departure from MA it seems we lost his traces.

Bryan Adams made a good choice, thanks to him.
But after MA set he really risks to find himself in the shadow of supporting band.

Ah, c'mon ... so he's popular. Compared to too many other "rock" stars, he's kept out of the celeb mags, delivers the goods for his fans on a consistent basis for a period of 20 plus years, has never really followed trends, and basically just put out enjoyable (if you like this type of music) stuff. In fact, he's a classic canadian - i.e. nice. So I find it hard to see what in blazers you see in him that would make you hate him. Oh, I know, he's more successful than your pet band Big%20smile

I wasn`t refering to Byan Adams. I can handle him. I was refering to that witch Cťline Dion who couldn`t sing her way  out of a wet sogy paper bag even if she had a loaded shotgun held to her head. ( look at the post just above mine )
