^^^Thank You, NR!Big smile I started working with them soon after this album came out...my FAVORITE cut was this....especially if you could experience it in front of Tony Bank's towers - you could literally feel the music resonate through your body....and if you were slightly tilted, that feeling was electric.
When it comes to the keyboards at high volume without blowing out your eardrums while standing in front of the speakers, nobody can quite make a person feel their molecules rattle like Banks can...and that is an amazing feeling.

Good stuff with that video.  I need more prime live Genesis (outside of the '73 live album).

In what capacity did you work with them?
I have 168 characters remaining.

Road work - small group of us were 'roadies for rent'. Think they're called something else now as 'roadie' just sounded a little too much like 'boy whores' when we were the TECHNICIANS, not the 'groupies'. We got all the technical setup and silliness, then the tear-down after the show. I don't think people realize how much 'prep work' goes into the setup and sound checks and adjustments all the way until the last minute before a show, especially if setting up for musicians who are perfectionists and/or bullies. Some folks were just nicer than others but there were plenty of times I wanted to turn and walk away. And no, it isn't a 'stoned life' - one has to be alert and ready, no excuses.
And tearing down? Sometimes not traveling with the band, but rather meeting up in the next city, things could get dicey when it came to train and bus schedules or if crossing into certain countries - sometimes only a subset of folks would go because of visa issues, or, like me after an ELP concert in Mannheim one beautiful summer evening...I hopped onto a train for a 30 minute ride to Heidelberg, but fell asleep and woke up near the iron curtain, where I got (happily) tossed off the train. When you left an event, you were TIRED, if not exhausted.
I got to work my tail off for a few groups. Rich? Not a chance. Free concerts? You bet. Meet people? All kinds and a lot - and it was really shocking when someone would remember you after not seeing you for years. It still makes me feel good.
 
No, no...bootleg stuff was not accessible, or was a good way to get fired.

That's an oldie, alright.

Written back in that innocent era when every 5th or 6th car on the road wasn't being driven by a psychotic serial killer out cruising the highways looking for their next victim.

Seen that video.

The same video clip is set to a couple of other songs, too.

I think the girls are Brits and it was taped from an old Brit dance show similar to American Band Stand.

That vid led me to "Pans People", some female dance troupe in England who danced on British TV shows in the 60s and 70s.  Lotta vids. Seems most of the dancers are dead now.
 
I'm sure Jimmy knows about them.

Interesting.

I didn't think the girls in the first video were professional dancers.

Figured they were just average teenage girls on a dance show.

I think those were just regular teenagers.  But there was a link under that video to some guy's Youtube page that featured Pan's People.

LOL
 
Especially that one they keep focusing on (the one in the screen capture).  There's another few who are outstanding, too.
 
Sadly, they're all in their 60s now.  Confused

Notice also that the two guys that nobody wants to look at anyway, are way back in the back.

Where they belong!!!

^ I might sing like that with my first butt check.  Exit only!

But, you inspire me PaW. Wink

It bugs me when these people rape a great song just to sell a product.



The original...

Great old song.

Gotta admit I really liked this remake version too, though...



... especially the video.
