I missed IA's voice too, but I think Ryan O'Donnell did a really great job.

Yeah, he surprised me a bit actually. Didn't think he was going to be that good. I thought, when I saw them in July, and IA did close to all the vocals, that it would be dissapointing to hear someone else sing JT material, and although he couldn't match IA's '70's voice (but who can, right?), it was fun seeing him do the kind of theatrics IA was known for in his heyday, and with such vigor, although he didn't fully match IA at his best in that department either (but, again, who can?).

It would surprise me, at the age of 65, if his vocals were as powerful as in 1972. I wouldn't expect them to be, in the same way as I wouldn't expect an athlete to run as fast as he/she once did.


In Lazland, life is transient. Prog is permanent.

Yeah, it's only natural, I guess. Still a shame though...
