"bless the rains..." ...oh man, that's one of my longest-held misinterpretations of lyrics busted right there. i guess it pays to read liner notes.
and, how did you misinterpret the lyrics? tonight was the last baby, one more time. ultimately, i just found the whole show too disappointing cause there weren't enough good bands or songs. at least, we'll still have bands reunited. i'd like to revise my bands reunited list. not only must the band be really good but there has to be tension filled backstory where the band members legitimately hate each other, and you don't know if they'll agree to reunite for one more song. so, i'd say two bands that would work great for such a show would be journey and the smiths. with journey, you've got crowd pleasing anthems. and, a wicked story of how the band turned on steve perry, the man responsible for their success, and brought in a younger doppleganger who sounds exactly like steve perry. the problem with the smiths is that they really don't have a popular single that american audiences would immediately recognize. but, i loved to watch the twisted web of infighting among all the band members: marr vs. morrisey mike joyce vs. marr and morrisey, when he sued them over past royalties, and was rewarded with a greater share rourke who didn't sue marr and morrisey, and ended up settling for a much smaller settlment than what joyce won in court there's got to be some bitterness among the less succesful members as they've watched from the sidelines of the continued success that morrisey receives. imagine the uncomfortable silence that follows after morrisey asking dale gilbert, 'so, mate, what you've done since the band'
