Re: AW: OT ELP/JP (rip)

i got the dvd of AdrianBelew's barband 'The Bears' and they do mostly band
written songs and they are quirkee nashville/cinncinati bar tradition-very
little to do w/ KC stuff. that is until half way thru the show they play
"RED" from the KC book and, well, er, they just dont pull it off...
the notes are all there but the vibe is totally missing and i wonder what
was up having this uber Crimson tune to be dragged out by these midwest
just wonderin...
