Tell me about it Fabrizio. I have 2 tickets and I am probably not going to see him. sad

But have a look at the album in any case, his voice sounds wonderful really, in spite of this is not his best effort of course.

I love his voice, I love what he does, I think he has flawless taste but I think he is simply uninterested.
One of the things I've always admired the most about him was his integrity. Can anybody explain to me how sitting on the same batch of songs for decades and then release them when they have been overcooked for years, the music landscape has changed several times and those very songs have nothing to do with what the person who wrote them is going through at the moment has anything to do with any resemblance of art? It looks more like a bored millionaire's pastime t me. I know that UP and Big Blue Ball sounded exactly like that to my ears and from the first listen of this....

Lord Yes! Still though I don't resent him for not working hard, who would in his place? I'd just like him to be coherent: start something, finish it and be done with it.

I don't blame him for taking it easier. I guess on the subject of finishing what he starts, he needs to be happy with it. If he's not happy, we don't get it.

Yes, I donīt blame him either, probably as you grow up your priorities change, and I would do the same in the same case!.

Did anyone else see Peter on The One Show last night when they were plugging his up and coming album of cover versions? They played a snippet of a cover of a Regina Spektor song which sounded rather tasty. Peter was in good form on the show too and such a nice guy. He also spoke of Lou Reed's cover of Solsbury Hill and how he liked the fuzz guitars used.
