I have no idea who David Icke is.....

Do I want to know who David Icke is?
Probably not. Big conspiracy theorist. A lot of people don't like him. Which is exactly why I do like him. He speaks his mind.

No. No you do not. Former footballer, turned television presenter, turned mentally unwell conspiracy theorist. Reptilian overlords, etc. Anti-semitic - all kinds of horrible, horrible nonsense.

And that's enough of that! I've watched this several times now Andy and I'm still smiling even though I hate Van Halen.

Oof to the ouch, but it sounds good and you look like you're having fun through the pain.

Bonus points for booking who I can only imagine is the Time Wizard on the Ric.
Thanks, & yes, Ric plays Ric, & has his own vibe going on :p
So true of many recordings when played live by the artist/artists. Too much is made of hitting everything note for note , iconic familiar parts and fills aside.
So long as the feel is kept and everything fits like you’ve done it’s all good .
For me, it depends on the agreed direction of the cover act. For sure, tribute act = every note as original, but every other format is open to interpretation. That said, the starting point should only ever be the ability to deliver the original part, with any deviation on the basis of a defined purpose.

I’ll accept joy derived on the basis of amusement 🤣

I had to Google and read about Icke on Wikipedia. He’d fit right in States here.

Now while looking for Big Foot I found a nest of what I thought were Dino eggs and I had found a living Dino ,so would finally get scientific recognition. But hell no it was a Reptilian as the male came by to check nest. I’m pretty sure it was Elvis so must be the King? I was that close to fame but nope just them dang Lizard people. I got great pics of Elvis- he’s lost weight. ROFL.

I guess I should post a disclaimer I don’t believe in Lizard people, however I do believe most politicians have reptilian brains so like a T-Rex the size of a walnut.

Well done, Andy :) Even injured, you are a fine tempo cop, the kit's sounding great, and your backbeat was fierce. Rock on! \m/
Cheers Grea, & such an honour to see you here. Fierce backbeat - I’m happy with that observation :cool:

He speaks his mind.

That’s the issue - his mind (trying desperately to keep away from the David Icke thing).

So Andy if I ever get over to UK again and can attend one of your concerts will you allow me a cameo on stage (with my springs) with the band while you gents play "Jump". I can be like a living prop. Everyone will go crazy is my bet. Maybe have smoke come out my butt so I can leave smoke trails while I flip? No fire-yikes! Show you how "US" yanks do it. Hey maybe the singer can join me? Hot dang we have to do it now.

I love you a lot, Art, but not that much. ;) Maybe I could just hold your hand?

No Fire? Don't forget - on Andy's stage you'd be "Fired Up!"

Dang you're right Smoke-silly me. Well the singer and I will draw straws who gets fire and the other smoke. This could be epic-Rammstein can eat it. LOL. Maybe the next song some Deep Purple- smoke on the water ….fire in the sky. It would be awesome. Absolutely no Jerry Lee Lewis.

I don't mind being on the water or getting in your eyes, but coming out of someone's backside is where I draw the line. :oops: ;)
