London 2020 / Re: Local hero musical cancelled at the Old Vic
« Last post by jbaent on Today at 11:45:20 am »
I just heard that Boris Johnson is going to cancel all restrictions regarding Covid, and trying to live with the virus, and also they are going to cancel all restrictions to travel to the UK, so maybe this would help to revamp the Local Hero musical in London?

Thinking in what Guy was telling, despite the Old Vic canceled it at his stage, Guy said they are not going to let this go, so I assumed they were trying to take the musical to other theatre, which would be amazing also because the CD release of the musical depended on the London shows, so I really hope that with the upcoming situation, they could announce anything regarding the musical and the record release, and being back at London soon to attend this wonderful musical again!

Nah, STP is going to win. For sure.

Who knows, who knows.... ;)

By the way, for me the best MK solo records are already gone, so I'm not gonna feel identified by any of these two, even I think that ShangriLa is better than STP, none of them are better for me than my favorites, that are gone.

Very few Les Pauls only weigh 7lbs…

Maybe the action was easier on the Beard.

It hurts me to say that but I don’t think it’s a matter of wanting or not to tour, guys.

Yes.  From 2013 to 2015 there was a notable drop in standard, but in 2019 there was some basic songs just dropped from the set and others with short solos or backed by brass instruments.  I would fear for him and his reputation to tour now.

 

100% agreed dmg, sadly....

Unfortunately, I agree also.  I really enjoyed the three concerts I attended in 2019, but I wouldn't want him to do another tour in 2023 when he would be 74.   I wouldn't want him to tarnish his reputation.  I hope he just continues writing songs and making albums now.

I'm absolutely with you, superval99!

The weirdest thing in 2019 to me was the absence on the iconic National on R&J. That sounded really strange.

The brass section can be cool if well used.

Mark turning into classic 'stax sound' blended with his inimitable touch could have been an enjoyable move.

The beard resonator just didn’t cut it. He might as well have played it on a normal wooden acoustic tuned to open G.

I think the old reliable National is just too heavy for Mark's back. The thingh weighs like an aeroplane! Around 8 lbs. or 4 kilos or more, it's a beast. And on the new guitar they seem to have a pretty generic and not a sophisticated undersaddle pickup which really sounds like a regular acoustic guitar. I think in the old one the pickup was installed right in the cone itself. But either way, this change was lame and I can't agree more.

Gibson Les Paul is also very heavy, and he used it a lot.

The problem with the National wasn't the weight, but protecting such an old guitar from further damage on the road.

I think he might had used the Beltona or the National replica instead of the Beard, that didn't sound right for Romeo nor for TR, but he thought it fit, so he used it.

Protecting guitar is also that Mark said about dropping his National, I believe. So, unless he's lying, that has to be true. But I think Les Paul is still about 1 kilo less, who knows about how his signature prototype weighs, maybe less, and also LP is easier to hold. With Heart Full Of Holes and "proper" metal body resonator guitar he played it while sitting! So it's not so clear to me as he just suddenly decided to protect a guitar after almost 100 years of abuse.

Maybe it was a metaphore of himself, LOL

Hi, in 2019 DSL came to argentina and I had the chance to See Alan Clark, Phil Palmer, and the great Jack sonni
As I was sitting in the 2nd row close to the stage I noticed that AC at the beginning  of prívate investigations performed several noises , the ones you listen at the beginning of the song when it is live gig
Apart from his regular keyboard arrangememts he uses his vocal cords to add more Unique sound. I mean some methalic sounds
I Guess, he has been doing so since the 80s, but, that was the first time I saw him live. Does he regularly do so ?

I guess you mean the marimba sounds? or sounds with his mouth?
