I have watched episodes 1 & 2 and enjoyed them both, Mark looks relaxed and clearly enjoying doing something new, which is amazing at the stage of his career. I look forward to the next episode, I wonder if they are already thinking about series 2? :think
Knopfler, Oldfield and Gilmour is all the guitar I need.

Watched the Santana episode.
Mark seemed a little off. Maybe he was tired.
I see that artists who are "connected to spiritual world" makes MK unconfortable.

That makes sense  ;D

What's the sense?  :)

Since Mark to me comes across as intellectual, well-read, empirical, and not religious and/or spiritual.

There are many intellectual people believe in a religion and/or are spiritual.

I think he may have looked uncomfortable being in the company of a great guitarist when he is now clearly severely limited.  It must be difficult for him.

My view of Mark is as indicated above, that he is one but not the other.

Just watched Ep3 Cyndi was great, really chatty, Mark and Brian hardly got a word in :) but she was good to listen to, I had forgotten how many good songs she has, and I didn't realise that she wrote a song with Mary Chapin Carpenter, another MK link there too. The embrace between her and Mark at the end was lovely too, you could feel the genuine affection from both of them.

Cyndi was fantastic. Like you I have gained an added appreciation for her songs that I have heard so many times over the years on the radio etc without really acknowledging how fantastic they really are. True Colours and Time After Time in particular.

The Sam Fender ep was also really good. 17 Going Under is a brilliant track. Interesting how he made it a mini Springsteen epic, with the sax and the glockenspiel, but unlike MK he actually sings in a Geordie accent!

And perhaps most significantly, Sam proposed doing a live show with him, BJ and MK AND MK AGREED! HE IS COMMITTED TO PLAYING LIVE AGAIN!

He also stated on various occasions that he would play for a long time, then played half the time of a Springsteen gig.  ;D

Springsteen is just incredible, where does he get the energy from?

I do, because I wish I had half his "oomph". I hope it's nothing illegal or immoral?  ;)

Bruce Springsteen's sets are also around 2 hours the last two tours.
And pretty static setlists these tours as well.
