I think I speak for the majority when I wish, with polite sincerity, that you would go away. Of all the regular posters on here you are by far and away the most tedious, the least funny and the most relentlessly irritating. Please, please, please stop.
Wow - I know it was only his thrid gig with the band, but even from this short clip you can hear that Spike's drums are all over the place, speeding up and slowing down a crazy amount during the same song. He doesn't seem to be able to stick to any kind of consistent beat at all.
Here is the full song, previously released several years back:
I was able to be backstage after this show and got to speak with Alain for a bit, where he asked me to pass along to this site (the post is lost in the archives from one of the many site re-builds) his apologies for the Vegas cancellation. He also believed that they "sounded like shit" that night, to which I disagreed. I have friends closely connected to the organizers of Coachella who has reported on the different attempts (and amounts offered) to get the Smiths to reunite there over the years.
We flew to Vegas for the show that would have been about a week before Coachella. We found out it was cancelled with everyone else, at the House of Blues. Then we had to stress about whether or not to drive to Coachella. Worked out.
My wife and I were in line there as well when it was announced, which was a disappointment for sure. On the upside, as we left the hotel lobby we bumped into my wife's favorite racer, Jimmy Vassar (former CART/IndyCar champion), who was waiting to meet Juan Pablo Montoya (his new, rookie teammate that would go on to win the championship that year) to take Juan out on his first visit to Vegas. We later ran into them both on the strip.
