Re: Moses Gate Bolton

Fin,
no need to for apology, as a Roxy fan we all get carried away with the endless speculation regarding RM,that then filters into diverse subjects etc etc.. as I stated I haven't seen your band (yet, maybe one day I never say never...) I have seen 'Magic' & they are good, however this world is big enough for all, I wasn't critisising you or KH for airing views here.

You can't change what has happened, but you can change the way you think about it.

I actually think its good that there are some Roxy tributes on the scene, it keeps the tunes alive in these times of speculation ref: is RM finished for good?? etc etc, is that the last tour?? Another RM album ???

Good Luck to you & your band (& Good Luck to KH & his band) that seems like a fair departure note
Regards to all
Brendan

Re:Well Said Brendan

Phew, I just read that whole thread in it's entirety and am totally stressed out! As many will have noticed over the years, I am one of the intelligent ones, referred to earlier, that has posted here(eh?) and I noticed instantly that that was a contrived and serious attempt between our Kevin and Fin to deliberately deflect attention away from this weekend's next "friendly" Celtic/Rangers cup final encounter up here. Nothing else. You done well lad's! I'll go see anyone or anybody that's Roxy influenced, especially the one, or all, that gives us "Serenade". Will never see Roxy Music play it live now. Anyway, it's Saturday so, I'm away to look out my train set for tonight and my crash helmet for the game on Sunday. Love to all, especially the boys at Roxy Magic and Roxyrama.

Re: Re:Well Said Brendan

Cheers Brendan and Gerry, level headed observations. Life's too short for such trivial feuds; my money's on Neil Lennon this Sunday by the way

Working out 'Serenade' as I type. What a song

Re: Re:Well Said Brendan

Fin, in what round? Serenade, I think, is one of the most underrated Roxy songs ever. Never seems to get a mention yet, when you do happen to mention it, nearly everyone say's yeah! Great song. For me it just throws all aspects of Roxy's musicianship and Ferry's (then) vocal range into one mix. Phil's Guitar and Paul's drumming in particular are awesome.
Curiously, when I was talking to Phil up here after the first of the Glasgow gig's, he told us told us to look out for something else in the set list the following evening. I mentioned Serenade and it was like a dissmissive "no". Maybe they just don't like playing it. You'd have to check John's set list thing to see what the "something else" was. It certainly wasn't from the earlier albums.

Cheers, Gerry.
