First time there tonight and will definitely be back. Very cool, great band. Nice atmosphere.
The only negative thing to be said is that PA needs work which I'd heard about before I got there so it must be a problem that has existed for awhile and needs to be addressed.
I always felt distant from the 80's. I couldn't relate to thin white guys with skinny black ties and it just seemed like people worked too hard to be thought of as different.
Chris Wood once told me that I was one of his biggest influences to which I replied "that is one of the cruelest things anyone has ever said to me". Chris wasn't a bad guy, just worked to hard to be different.
I sat in with the opening act during the Sex Pistols show at the music hall and it was closer to a circus than a music performance. I met those guys back stage and wasn't impressed with them on or off stage but had a respect for Malcolm McLaren. He was Colonel Tom Parker without the cigar or talent to back but he did perpertrate a scam and I'm all for that which is why I really dig the current gov't bailout.
I did enjoy the article and it made me pull out the unreleased movie of the Sex Pistols assault on America called "DOA" which incorporates their appearance at the music hall and a portion of my performance as well.
