The Police – Barcelona 27-7-09


Una buen concierto, quizas algo corto ya que tocaron solo 1h y 45 minutos dejando fueras varios temas que me hubiera gustado escuchar. Sting, Andy Summers y Stewart Copeland son musicos con un talento excepcional y muy profesionales. 55,000 personas asisteron en el Estadi Olimpic de Barcelona. Aqui hay unas fotos

A good gig, but somewhat short (they played only 1h and 45 minutes). Lots of good songs like for instance “spirits in the material world” were left out but they played all of their hits in front of 55,000 people. Them three are awesome musicians. Sting sang exceptionally well, Copeland was a pleasure to watch behind the drums. Pictures here.

W.A.S.P. – Madrid 24th November 2006

 

Great show in a packed “Macumba”. Blackie Lawless was unstoppable (don’t know where he stills finds the energy). The guys on lead guitar and drums were also a force of nature, really good. They played mainly their old  and classic songs which was great: after an almost entire “the end” by the Doors as an intro, they opened up with “On your knees”, then “L.O.V.E. machine”, “Sleeping in the fire”, “The headless children”, “I wanna be somebody”, and finishing off with “Blind in Texas”. Blakie still rocks after all these years, a true metal hero and gret musician and professional.

God and the Supernatural?

 

 

In this interview Eddie Vedder gives some thoughts and considerations about his feelings for God or the supernatural. I understand now that, amongst many other artists, Eddie is also an Atheist. This reiforces further the admiration I have for him as a musician and as a man.

Vedder is lead singer and lyricist of the band Pearl Jam.

From http://www.cmj.com/NewMM/QandA/veddergarofalo.html:

This is Janeane Garofalo. I’m interviewing Eddie Vedder and we’re at Brendan’s, on the Lower East Side.

JG: Can I ask what your feelings are about God?

EV: Sure. I think it’s like a movie that was way too popular. It’s a story that’s been told too many times and just doesn’t mean anything. Man lived on the planet — [placing his fingers an inch apart], this is 5000 years of semi-recorded history. And God and the Bible, that came in somewhere around the middle, maybe 2000. This is the last 2000, this is what we’re about to celebrate [indicating about an 1/8th of an inch with his fingers]. Now, humans, in some shape or form, have been on the earth for three million years [pointing across the room to indicate the distance]. So, all this time, from there [gesturing toward the other side of the room], to here [indicating the 1/8th of an inch], there was no God, there was no story, there was no myth and people lived on this planet and they wandered and they gathered and they did all these things. The planet was never threatened. How did they survive for all this time without this belief in God? I’d like to ask this to someone who knows about Christianity and maybe you do. That just seems funny to me.

JG: Funny ha-ha or funny strange?

EV: Funny strange. Funny bad. Funny frown. Not good. That laws are made and wars occur because of this story that was written, again, in this small part of time.

Food for thought to fight off the ever spreading global ignorance.

    Pretty Vision – Live 16th September 2005

     

    4 years later and the mighty Pretty Vision delivered again!
    After a remarkable performance by support act H.A.N.D., the
    old quartet delivered an excellent performance at Pub Millenovecento, Tavernelle (PG),
    in spite of some evident rustiness accumulated during the 4 past years of inactivity.
    Songs that stood out were the opening one “On the Ground”, a cover of “Don’t look back in Anger” by Oasis and two of the encores (Break on through, All along the Watchtower).

    The night ended with all the band members and some 20 friends & fans being
    extremely drunk, disorderly and unrluly, vocalising football songs and other various chants, until 5 am in the morning.
