Atrocious farce.. Can you make out what Sir.P says after " let me introduce to you, the 1 & only.."?? I can't, it's very muffled, but I notice he has a big smile on his face.., also note the comments for the vid, saying "it's a shame his voice sounds so crap, but the poor fella was 63 when he sung this after all." .. ;D ;D ;D
Uhm..well, I was thrilled when I realized what they were doing and enjoyed it immensely!
I thought it sounded great, and satisfied my strange, aesthetic desire that somewhere, somehow, that song be performed on stage with full harmonies and French horns, guitar licks, etc......I found it to be wish fulfillment. We don't always get to see our whims materialized and I saw one of mine happen that day.
But you've each a right to how you felt about it, you know.
sorry, i meant the live 8 thing was a farce, not Bill`s performance. I agree It was good fun, lest we forget, he was part of the original pepper line-up after all..
Of course he was, and sang the heck out of it in 1967 and recently.
Yea, I guess the Live8 "show" has a whole was an overblown donnybrook. I don't even remember what it was for. But there were terrific moments amidst the fray. It provided some exposure for some attention hogs---young, hot-dog performers with an agenda or an axe to grind.
