I got a "notification mail" now, no idea why is that. Is that a first warning from the censorship department of this board?

No warming, probably you hit the notification button. The mail said you are 'watching' this topic. So it seems an own setting you made.

Looking at the cover artwork, has anyone else noticed something weird about the photo of Guy Fletcher? He is in the middle just above Mark, his face is grey :hmm
Knopfler, Oldfield and Gilmour is all the guitar I need.

Personally I think this will pick up momentum prior to release when it's publicised through the individual artists media channels. A few have already put mentions on their websites, Brian May to name one, Why on earth with the names involved wouldn't this make bucketfuls of cash for a worthy cause.

Way to much over analysis and cynicism from some quarters.

A month until the release and I read that it was a fake song. I can not believe. I am asking for a little more enthusiasm and positive attitude. Regards.
There was a lot of enthusiasm for the DS live box, for the guitar auction and there is a lot of enthusiasm about One Deep River. For this one, there are mixed reactions and that's ok.
I'm not a fan of this idea that we have to find everything good or exciting just because we're fans.

Also, I think not everything should be kept this secret. What was the point of this CIA level of security regarding the TCT project? Fans noticed a stream of celebrities coming to Mark's studio, with David Gilmour and Sting being the main "spoilers", and knew something was cooking. They imagined an album full of Buddy Holly songs, duets with Mark, a new song or two maybe?

But what they got is the announcement (!), of a remake of a 1983 instrumental tune full of guitar shredding called "Guitar Heroes" coming from the man who never even considered himself a guitar hero, and was never interested in too much of guitar noodling in the first place. All these stars are playing the same tune crammed into 9 minutes... I mean, just by typing this I can understand all the frustration.

It's a little bit, itsy-bitsy anti-climactic.

I’m looking forward to hearing it……how long will it before it’s on YouTube in its entirety after its release?

As cool as a video montage would be, we all know that they weren’t all at BG playing live, the majority would have sent their parts in so getting them to film themselves too would have been over complicated.
The project has already taken two years!! I’m not sure why really, you just contact everyone who has agreed to be on it and give them a deadline to record their part by….dont you?

Hopefully normal people will not have the same expectation than the die-hard Knopfler's fans  :wave

Indeed. Some of the happy clappers on Facebook say that anyone who doesn’t lavish praise on every single thing MK does are not “real” fans.

So I guess we have a few imaginary fans on here.

It has to be released on YouTube officially, the question is more like will it be leaked before the official release or not? :lol

Yes, I think most of the time was spent clearing all the rights, doing paperwork and stuff like that. All these men are professionals and recorded their parts in the amount of time it takes to listen to them. Not sure recording the video portion is complicated. I mean Mark bothered to record himself in multiple takes over the green screen for his Dion collaboration recently, and we just got "Ahead Of The Game" filmed professionally, so it's not an impossible thing to ask.

I hope at least to see the biggest guys (Eric, David, Sting, Ringo, The Who, etc.) playing.

The funny thing is normal people are OVER THE TOP about this, and rightfully so. Die-hards are on the opposite side of the spectrum, overly frustrated, probably rightfully so as well. It's not fair to think that die-hards are always grumpy, and normal fans are always happy. I genuinely think it could be done better, the whole campaign. Not like we can change anything anyway. But the fact is — expectations were built, purposefully or not, and then destroyed, purposefully or not. Die-hard fans are still people, and it's a balancing act to try to please both sides. But Mark is not the type of guy who's had a great history of pleasing die-hard fans :lol

On Brian May's website, the guitarists pictured are listed by name. Unfortunately, they are difficult to read.
