  1. If I tell everyone what my funeral songs are going to be, I'd be concerned that no one would show up
  2. Where might one find this Transcription Archive page? And can you do Gates Of Delirium next please?
  3. Cracking player. I once bumped into Terry Gregory (ex of Steve Hackett's band) and told him that he and Lee Pom were the best bassists to have been in that band, but their playing style (ie lefties upside down) makes it impossible to crib their licks. Doubly frustrating for the Genesis tribute player! (as I was when I saw them live). Also we were at a gig watching another upside down lefty, Jimmy Haslip. Are there more than these three who play like this?
  4. By jove that Cage/Quiet Earth/Apocalypse medley is fantastic though. Back in the day we used to mix up the component parts of the Cage medley from different tours; a favourite was Cage/Cinema Show/Slipperman/Quiet Earth/Apocalypse.
  5. I had to check the back of the DVD case, but yes you're right, one screen on either side of the stage. Bit of a faff changing from Jazz bass to Steinberger guitar and back to the Jazz for Afterglow though - wonder why he didn't use a double-neck for this tour? (although I'm not 100% convinced he didn't)
  6. Awesome, thanks for posting - never seen this version before thanks to it being left off the Live at Wembley Stadium film. The story was that seeing as ITC appeared on the previous Mama Tour and Three Sides Live videos, then no one would be interested in seeing it a thrid time round so lets change the film reels during the song this time round - every night for four nights. All tight shots though, no long distance full stage footage, and three weeks before Wembley. Could have been a run-through or dress rehearsal to make sure their jacket sleeves were properly rolled up. Also I've played this a thousand times in my Genesis tribute days, it's nice to see and hear properly where I was doing it wrong all that time. Also also - nice to see Phil when he could still drum, and his voice is still in pretty good shape too.
  7. Wholeheartedly agree. I must be one of the most passionate players around. Here's Tony levin's take on a train wreck that happened to him with King Crimson, or a he puts it "a Crimson train wreck is, well, not like other bands… a King Crimson train wreck takes out the whole train station. And maybe the town it’s in!" https://tonylevin.com/road-diaries/king-crimson-2017-tour-pt1/red-bank-show2
  8. Trev is feb but he definitely effs it up here, coming out of the harmonica solo around 2m50s.
  9. "The Ronnie Corbett of bass playing" btw do any other readers tap their foot so hard that things fall off tables? (around 12m17s)
  10. I like the sweaty brow mop around 2m10s. I did that just watching him
  11. I like this one
  12. "Some years ago, while I was touring with King Crimson, there was a terrible fire at my barn. Everything in it was destroyed, including many basses and amps. I heard about it the same day, and drove home after that night's show. Of course I was saddened by the loss, and sifted through the remains. One charred relic of a bass caught my attention. Its blackened body was shrunk to half its size, with the pickup melted right onto the charred wood. The neck was gone - the truss rod had survived, but the heat had bent it in half. All four strings were annealed to the bridge, and stuck out at odd angles, one with a tuning peg melted onto its end. A sad sight. I took the bass to that night's show with King Crimson in New Haven - we set it up on stage next to the other basses- quite a sight. And it smelled awful. In doing that, Michele, my tech, noticed that it had no volume controls, which meant it must be the 3 string bass which Music Man had custom made for me, and which had been featured on a magazine cover only months before. They had put so much work into the bass, having to redesign the neck and pickup for only that one instrument. How could I break them the news that it was gone? I shipped them the bass, and preceded its arrival with the following fax: Hello Sterling. I am having some trouble with the neck of my custom 3 string, and have shipped it to you to adjust. Sincerely, t.l. Days later, I received this answer: We have received your bass. Please be advised that this instrument is out of warranty. California no longer allows smoking in bars, which has substantially reduced the odor problem your bass exudes. We have otherwise checked it out and everything appears to be to factory specifications. Regards."
