Just added a couple pics to the gallery


thanks j (good karma)

(but indeed, somebody really should loan simon a pair of trousers. or a kilt, just anything really.
poor guy he looks like as if he ran off from national ballet or something. :oops:)

That is one of a very few pics that I took where you can actually see his face.  I was on Simon's side and ran into the same problem as crowbi_wan.  They had bright lights to the side of Porl and Simon.  Most of the pics I took of Robert or Porl were drowned out by the lights by Porl, and the ones next to Simon whited out his face.  I must have taken 10 pics in succession just trying to time when the light would quickly turn off so I could get a shot.

I think he looks cool --> http://curefans.com/index.php/v/live/2008/us-shows/PICT0237.JPG.html?action=gallery



i don't argue. and simon's still in my "top 5 coolest persons ever" list for sure, and will stay there.
but still, i do think somebody should tell him to wear trousers. 


(btw that's quite a joestrummer-ish pic of him, in a way)

I was there for the show, it was ok, I was looking forward to hearing alot of 4:13 dream, and they did just 2 songs from it. Alot of people started to leave, I thought it was kind of strange, but It worked out great for me, for I was able to get 3 rows from the pit right in front of simon, Porl and Robert looked tired, probably from the night before, Simon carried this show that night, full of energy, Hopefully the next time the come her to play it will be alot of 4:13 dream and some other older songs that never get played live, I will give it a 7 out of 10 ;)

I also felt that Robert mailed in the vocals all night.  No power to the vocals at all.  The clown of the show was the guy behind me...as the band was walking on stage, he kept yelling "Underneath the Sky!".  Genius.  Absolute Genius. 


ha, or the guy behind me who kept screaming for "how soon is now?"

...kidding about that one, but i would not have been surprised if some trendy douche shouted that.

As you can see I had the same problem with the lighting.

btw i can assure you Simon does wear underpants underneath his tights.

call me a negative-nelly if you want but what's with the tights?? Each to their own but it's been going on for how long now? and why? i guess he's not a fatty so it doesn't look bad but tights????

Then again i do believe that in my debut appearance fronting Orpheus, i frocked up in a Jane's Addiction t-shirt, tights and doc martens so i'm not one to talk...
