I'll have to send you a copy of the boot called REHEARSALS & SOUND-
CHECKS.  But the TOMMY stuff on it has an annoying high-pitched hiss 
throughout.  One of these days I'm gonna run it through my equalizer & tidy 
it up a bit.  Just listened to "Sally Simpson."  It's strong.

No, I wasn't being sarcastic.  Don't worry!  I agree with you!

I haven't even seen it yet!  WTF?!  Tape it for me, OK, Kevin?

Christmas Keets:

Sure!  If you're sitting way in the back, the sound takes an extra split second 
(?) to reach you.  Pete windmills, & half a second later you hear the sound.  
And you don't necessarily have to be super far away (ahem) to notice this.  
It's evident in, say, the pavilion seats, as well.

And of course, DVD & VHS releases can have dodgy video-sound syncs, 
too.  As good as the remastered TKAA DVD was, the video & sound weren't
synced up too precisely, IMO.

And as for Pete faking his guitar parts:  no way.  Maybe the dude heard the
acoustic guitar in the WGFA synth track & thought Pete was trying to pull
a fast one or something.
