I don't know, mate.  But I think I might have a problem.  I seem to spend more and more of each day scouring the web to see if I can get better tickets for gigs than I already have.  I think I enjoy that more than the gigs!  ;D
The thrill of the chase!  :P

Rush News & Chat / Re: Neil Peart Drum Clinic from 1992
« Last post by Thenop on Today at 10:21:15 »
Looks like this is not a one off clinic specially put together, rather a clinic on the stage Rush are playing that night. Indeed far from ideal for any clinic. You would want something more intimate.
But is is really interesting. He likes to talk yes, then again, he has a lot to say on the subject. I have never been a fan of his writing but when he does something he is actually capable of (drumming) and explains how he does certain things (not techniques, there are others better equipped to explain that), like how he approaches a composition and why he plays a part a certain way, I am all ears. He is one of those drummers that can tell a "story" with his playing and I like that.

Ah, well you see Richard - my own strong preference to be pleasant and civil also went out the window at the point when I was called an "ignorant c***", which after all is nothing if not a personal remark.

Agreed

You are not ignorant........

Standing for Wembley sorted - that was easier than the Eddie Vedder bunfight a few weeks ago.

Giles didn't disappoint, within 30 seconds of the first question he'd Gish Galloped straight down a blind alley of total incoherence.

Fell asleep shortly after that while they were discussing Wales, but awoke in time to witness Andrew Neil's typically brilliant opening monologue on This Week.

It'll be all downhill from there, so back to sleep then.

Ridiculous comment from Rifkind about Cameron warning about an SNP/Lab alliance. It wasn't because the SNP were Scottish that he was concerned about that, it was because they were hard-left, separatist, irresponsible, juvenile and dishonest.

The George Osborne question - I'll be surprised if George ends up spending as much time editing the Evening Standard as Corbyn has spent attending and organising terrorist apologism events, none of which have a great deal to do with the interests of his constituents in Islington.
