Fair enough. Yes of course I saw the logo and of course I went to youtube and found access was cut there as well and I did wonder the person who shot it (obviously a cure fan) might have but the link to it on the list as well. But I must have been wrong. Sincerest apologies!

Poor Robert was bothered by so called Fans. What do such people think when they do this? It's disrespectful. Should a celebrity brave everything? I mean when they have cameras most of the time in front of their face. I think not, because they have also the right to be left alone i think.

Robert was once again very nice to them, even if he was very tired. Respect towards Robert!!  :smth023




PS: I haven't seen the video and i don't want so see it.

He looks so tired. Video is from 11th August (it's saturday already in Australia), so I guess it's right after the Sydney gig?.

I was watching this online as I typed the setlist for Sydney Night 2, (which was as people were leaving the venue), so it was actually filmed the morning after Brisbane, probably the morning of 9 August 2007 is my guess

but IF i was robert then I myself would run away when some complete strangers come to me and start telling how they have listened to my records backwards, from the end to beginning trying to find some secret messages there...
hey that's just NUTS. i think people like that need some :smth100
so, IF i were robert...

@lady: believe me, this video was massively much much more worse than that last one...  ;)

besides, wasn't that robert himself who at least once put his hand over the camera lens?
i think there's a pretty clear message, regardless of whether you play the video onwards or backwards or upside down or whatever.  :?

no that's not what i meant. because i wasn't just sarcastically referring to our differences last time but i honestly meant that this was seriously a LOT LOT worse than the other video before and i truly doubt it that even you would have find those fans "warm".

and besides, like i said, if robert himself put his hand on the camera lens, to try to tell them "please stop filming"...
shouldn't we simply respect that?

I wasn't sarcastic, too. :smth001
Honestly I was disappointed by Bob's behaviour about the camera...maybe this is right for you, but I (and a lot of italian people) think that an artist acts like this when he "gets a big head" and so becomes cold with his fans...that's why I told about different points of view, but I didn't say that you wrong or I wrong...  ;)

Anyway there are many artists, who everywhere are always so sweet and friendly with their fans ...I really don't know why Bob seems everytime so bothered.... :?

I think it all depends of the situation. The video showed someone very tired after a long concert (Bob). It's like if you were in a party all night long and next day at 7.00 am some friend knock your door. I wonder if you would be happy to open your door :)

So I think, it all depends of the situation. For example, we've got signatures from Roger Waters in his hotel, one afternoon. He was very relaxed and did sign to about 30 fans. But I dont think he would sign if we bother him after a concert, when he obviously needs some rest...

well, in the video robert was trying to say to those fans that he's very very tired and haven't slept but a few hours - and that he has to be able to sing in the evening too, so he needs rest... so i don't think that it was anything like "being big-headed". you can look at a person and tell when he's truly exhausted and would just like to rest. robert simply looked like this and not at all big-headed.
i think there's a clear difference between these two.

Anyway there are many artists, who everywhere are always so sweet and friendly with their fans ...I really don't know why Bob seems everytime so bothered.... :?

but people are different. we cannot ask every celebrity to be extremely open and willing to share his personal life and personal time to everyone. if some celebrities do it, it's fine because it's obviously their choice. but we can't use them as models and say "everyone should be like this". if you look into the history of the band a bit, it's soon very clear that robert never wanted his personal life to be in be under the public eye. he wanted people to be interested in his art and not in himself as a person. he said this many times, in numerous ways. so cannot we just leave him as it is? how could we have a right to ask him to change for us? we all are just how we are, you and me too....

David, if those people had such a big desire to meet me just once in a lifetime, I would make this "sacrifice"...I'd be glad (and honored,too!) to make them happy!!!! ;)

...but I know, everyone is different! :smth001

Yes, it's maybe ok a few times. But can you imagine how many times this happened to Robert in his 30 years of career? :)

Yes, i agree with you totally japanesebaby!!

Why didn't the people left Robert alone, if they noticed that he was very tired?. He also said it to them.


I can understand that celebrities are not amused about it when a fan visible bothers them.
For me that is disrespectful and will ever be.
That happens many times in their career.



And i'm very happy for Robert he has a private life - that is private. He needs a place where he can retire. Everyone needs it i think.
