There's a thread for this in Trib Bands section, Thomas! wink smiley

My next gig? Dunno! Could be Martin Barre on Thursday or Focus tomorrow week. I'm getting withdrawal symptoms! Last gig I went to was G2 at the Robin, I think!

I can never get tired of listening to Steve play the guitar.

The Nad show is a different story.... tongue

Gotta agree with the first line.

The second, well, I think he's OK, but I can see he wouldn't be everyone's choice. I guess a large part of the choice was down to who was available. Other projects etc have to be taken into consideration. For example, Tony Patterson would be a fine choice, but maybe the day job is in the way.

Have you heard the Unifaun album? Nad plays all the instruments with the exception of the drums, which are played by another talented Swede by the name of Bonamici.

Nad's vocals on the Unifaun album are most likely what got Steve Hackett to investigate Sylvan further. His performances on that album are so appropriate for what he set out to achieve - a tribute to the sound of Genesis; not the music of Genesis - and he did a stellar job IMO. He sounds like both Peter and Phil throughout the album, while at the same time coming off as an original.

Great stuff!

Gabriel would have probably annoyed you as well with his antics in the early days of Genesis gigs. For the Hackett gigs, Nad is trying to bring back some of the original Genesis feel to the show, which I thought he did quite well at the show they performed here in SoCal.

On one hand, I simply do not care for his voice. I found his contribution to the Revisited II project distinctly out of place; his singing more a distraction to the music, as opposed to a complement. During these shows I noticed that he was making odd pronunciations to certain words, and he even forgot the words at a certain point.

On the other hand, I found his "antics" awkward and cheesy. Gabriel has a natural way of performing on stage that is fascinating to watch. Nad's performance was cringe worthy.

Steve may very well appreciate his contribution to this show. That's great.
I don't.

Fortunately, it is easy to block him out and concentrate on Steve or any one of the other musicians on stage.
