Re: Elvis and The Imposters, Dublin (Ireland), June 23, 2018

I wonder why people don't rant about Dylan the same way - after all, he's been barely able to carry a tune in a basket since the late 90s but everyone loves to go and see him. It must be something about Elvis that the average Joe feels he can now have a go at - if only Jake were here to defend him !...

These things happen. Given that Joel runs this from his house I don't think we need to be seeking apologies.

I'm grateful for everything he does to keep us up and running.


Too right - as a collective, we owe him enormous respect and gratitude !

Pretty much the perfect review as I heard it Edney !! Massive thanks for this . I arrived late and had to wait during Girls Talk before popping into my seat on row DD, one row behind Edney . The sound was nigh on perfect with Davey’s muscular bass to the fore but never drowning out the rest of the b...

Re: Elvis & The Imposters, Cardiff, June 17th 2018

Setlist should read PIU instead of the first PLU. Elvis finally got a standing ovation at then end of PLu and launched into WFTEOTW and LTZ and then I Want you spontaneously - or so it seemed. Magnificent venue, sound completely different to Nottingham. I missed first three songs due to an accident ...

Re: 'Elvis and The Imposters , U.S. tour 2018'

I've always promised myself a U.S. tour when I retire, just hope I do before Elvis. Problem is, my first plan for the Texas Sugarcanes fell though and now I don't know whether to do an East Coast or West coast - I know I'll HAVE to do NY just to meet the revered Apostles !

Finish work in Devon at 4 pm and then off up the M5 and M4 - whoopee. I'd still rather see him at St. David's Hall, many fond memories of great gigs there.

Hey Neil, don't you think the Imposters might be a bit too "rocky" for PFM V2 - I'd rather have Burt's orchestrations and Steve's piano in this instance and the new Imposters album being like Momofuku ! And yes, you're right about Lovable - I hadn't absorbed those lyrics like I probably sh...
