David Byrne and Brian Eno played at Toronto’s Massey Hall, on October 30, 2008.
These two music giants were on stage together in their glory for all to see! I greatly admire both of these great players, but together they sounded like they fit together like a rubber glove, according to my old high school friend Carl Wilson!
He is a music critic for the Globe and Mail, Slate and other media outlets in Toronto. If you ever get the opportunity to meet Carl, maybe while taking in a show that he is writing about somewhere, ask him what he thought about a song we did together live called “Peanut Butter”!
His article was the only reference that led me to this show. I think his piece in the Globe and Mail described it rather nicely!
David Byrne (Talking Heads), is just fantastic to listen to, especially live! Life During War Time as well as Psycho Killer on Stop Making Sense, is David at his musical best. I LOVE playing Life During War Time on acoustic guitar for my brother, I mainly play what the keyboardist is doing, maybe that’s why so many guitar players are looking at me strangely when I play this with them.
Brian Eno (Roxie Music) simply needs no introduction. Everything he touches turns to musical gold! What else can you say about the guy! Same Old Scene, from Flesh and Blood is the one masterpiece that needs to played at 11 on your volume control! Thanks Ken, Allan and Tony and lets not forget Tim M., for bringing him to my attention, oh about 30 years ago!
I’ve never seen either one of these guys live, that’s my lose. So who out there has seen these troubadour’s live? Are they worth the price of admission?
Keep on Jammin’
