They could CGI a smile or two in.

 

Will they create a holographic motorcycle he can ride between the shows? You have to sweeten the deal for Holographic Neil.


Hey there goes Alex. He's loaded with money. Wow he's really set himself up great.

Add holographic The Macallan to seal the deal

 

I liked Peart so much better when interviews were rare and the focus was on the music and not his views on life.

I have to agree. Drumming is what makes him interesting.

It's always interesting to get Neil's take. If he just talks drumming, he presents himself as a mono-faceted individual to the public. I would never expect someone of his intelligence to just stick to drum discussion. Neil's lyrics are his views, more or less, and some of them are socially and politically charged. Should he not talk about them in interviews?

I love the guy, but he's a bit of a blowhard. Everything is a speech or dissertation.

What irritates me further is that he has stopped writing completely since his retirement.

Maybe I have problems.

I just take him as a package deal. None of us can be all things to all people.

We do know more about Neil than we actually know about the other two, despite the fact that he can't pretend a stranger is a long-awaited friend.

That's probably the best way to do it

Stewart Copeland from The Police.  His band isn't together anymore.

Loved Animal Logic's debut way back in the early '90s. This is a video for a song from their second album.

Loved Animal Logic. I guess Andy Summers was in it for a second but bailed after a warmup tour.

Animal logic was an intersecting idea: top-line musicians like Copeland and Clarke providing sophisticated arrangements to Debra Holland's sick pop-country-folk songwriting skills - an odd combination of personnel but one that musically worked nonetheless. But they were too earnest for the cynical early '90s.

 

Just saw on Wiki that Steve Howe added some guitars to a couple songs on their debut.

 

Funny where people wind-up.

 

Debra Holland
 
After receiving a master's degree from California State University, Los Angeles, Holland joined the faculty, running the Master's in Commercial Music program from 1998 to 2010.
 
In 2010, Holland relocated from Los Angeles to Vancouver, BC. In 2011, Holland began teaching songwriting at Langara College in Vancouver.
 
She's continued making albums over the years though. Has five solo records to her name.
 
I don't know what happened to the other two guys. lol.

I really like the first album. The second is cool but the pop direction seems a bit forced. Jackson Browne sings backing vox on one of the songs too. Might be Rose Colored Glasses...
