> Scott, don't make me break out Glade jokes. ;-)
D'oh! I knew that was coming!
> An observation or two:
> People in NY are a bit jumpy.
Clarification: *Tourists* in NY are a bit jumpy. Real New Yorkers
have seen it all before.
> Also, I too didn't feel anything at the pit. Scott, it was you who
> had to remind me of the amount of death.
I suspect we would've had a more emotional reaction had we visited in
the direct aftermath of the event & seen the smoldering rubble.
> I've now read 2 different accounts of how Pino was easily heard. One
> even stating he was too loud.
> How can that be?
Seating area has a lot to do with it. Sometimes you find yourself in
that zone where you can really hear the low end bass sound. I think
it's time to remind ourselves again the complaints about the *2000* tour
that *Entwistle* was too low in the mix. Out of the four shows I saw
in 2000, only one, Pittsburgh, had a nice loud bass sound.
> What's the explanation??
1. Large venue = smeared, indistinct bass sound.
2. Pino's personal preference in amp settings is......wimpy.
3. Pino's style of playing is wimpy; he's not a "hard" bass player.
> I've been chuckling at various things from this weekend too.
> One of the best, Scott, was when you pointed out to Mike that you
> broke out the Glade again.
I think that was when we were all leaving the hotel & Mike was staying
behind & I said, "Mike, you want me to leave this Glade out in case
you'd like to use it?" (Mike doesn't like cigarette smoke & he doesn't
like Glade air freshener!)
> Man, that was priceless. I looked over at Stu, and he was about bent
> over in pain.
Stu's no slouch in the humor department, either. Great sense of humor.
Man, now I wanna party with all you guys again *this* weekend!
