I went to a Fab Faux concert last night. They were AWESOME!!! They weren't nearly as good as The Beatles, of course, but they were still great!

They played While My Guitar Gently Weeps, and at the end, they played the extra verse from Anthology, and I mean the actual recording! I kinda got a little freaked out because I thought it was George's ghost or something at first… but then I realized what was happening. It was just a recording.

I went to see them back in September (I think), and at the concert, there was a guy standing in the aisle dancing and obviously having the time of his life. He was there again this time. :)  I kept reaching down to "fix my shoe" or something like that, and then subtly turning around to see the dancing guy. :)

The second half of the show was Abbey Road, and during I Want You (She's So Heavy), the main guy in the band got off of the stage and went around the audience. Luckily, I was at the end of an aisle, so he went right by me! :)

The concert was even better than the one in September. :)  Then again, that might just be because I love Abbey Road. :)

The last sketch was very funny. Have always wished Ringo had stuck to comedy as he had great timing and could down play anything, its why he was so good in the Beatles films as he always looked so innocent regardless of what he was saying, doing. At times i could give him a hug.

Yes, even now he could be cast in quite a few good witty comedies. 

The films he chose are a bit odd and sound terrible, who's going to sit thru Caveman or Candy after reading each synopsis, they sound dreadful. Even the Magic Christian is meant to have dated badly and thats meant to be one of the better ones. Yet when i see him in interviews and comedy sketches he's always very funny.

Oh Caveman is on youtube. Its flipping awful, hilariously bad, tho Barbara looks good, no wonder Ringo was interested.

Candy is also up but in parts. From what i briefly saw its terrible, Ringo isnt it in it that often - which may not be a bad thing as its good reason not to suffer.

The Magic Christian again in parts, it has to be better than the other 2.

Ognir Ratts was good in parts, a big benefit being George appearing and narrating, far better than Pauls Give My Regards To Broad Street. Maybe thats what Paul needed - George appearing or a good script and pointless crappy remakes of his songs.

I tried to watch the Magic Christian once, but I just..hated it? Or maybe I just didn't understand it. Caveman has never sounded appealing to me and Candy doesn't seem too good either. Ognir Ratts sounds lame.

I read once that he was asked to play a big role but he refused. Damn it's on the tip of my tongue. Something with a secret agent spie thingie, quite well known.

I want to watch the sketch thingie, but right now I'm listening to a friend who's performing on the radio. He won a contest and just sang Zombie by the Cranberries. Tbh..it wasn't good. At all. If he was the best, I don't even want to know how horrible the other contestants were. I'm pleased for him though.

Edit: He just sang something by Billy Idol. My mom thought he sounded like Bowie. He kinda does. But then he did Kryptonite by 3 Doors Down which was veeeery bad

Not sure that reads as you intended. Wasn't Give My Regards To Broad Street full of "pointless crappy remakes of his songs". It certainly didn't need any more. Or am I just reading it wrong? Unless... and I'm just kinda getting this reading of it, you're suggesting it had "a good script and pointless crappy remakes of his songs" but if it had had George as well that could have saved it! And damn, pet peeve, as grammar is being discussed over in that thread, is the apostrophe (Pauls, thats) so hard? Sorry, I'm in ranting mode.

I think the remakes on GMRtB are dire pieces of CRAP that were entirely pointless and added nothing to the film. I meant to type that George being in it would have been a big improvent (one reason being it's George, another his sense of humour would have added a lot - if given a chance) and helped the film, much as his appearance in Ognir Ratts achieved the same thing. Otherwise add a good script & plot, losing a load of the dreadful scenes that bog the film down, bringing in an ending that wasnt so bad and annoying (it was all a dream - piss off, ive wasted 85 odd minutes on this crap for it all being a shit dream!!), and spending time to write songs that were good, not spectacular but neither shit remakes or shit new crap like No Values and Not Such a Bad Boy that took Paul all of 2 minutes to write whilst blowing his nose. The only good thing about GMRtB is No More Lonely Nights; Paul could have saved us, and himself, the time and money by releasing that one song the way it was - as a single. May have also helped his career and reputation in the 80's such as the reception the film got , sadly this marked a notable decline in the quality of his output in the mid-80's that had been suggested with the Pipes Of Peace LP.

 

On a different matter have the bbc news on and the reporter in Cyprus is walking about finding it difficult to find people who speak English (maybe they are blanking him), and upon finding someone who can speak Broken English asking how much money they are taking out of the bank. with a crowd around them, and has it been difficult taking money out of the banks since they have been closed?
