One of those things I wish I had done. Did finally get to see them on their last tour, though. Some kind of weird music festival, there was a metal band with a rockin' lady cellist that was just amazing and I didn't even catch their name.

Oh, man, Living Color is another band I wish I had seen. Live "Cult of Personality" with billionaire geek sound bites would be awesome, eh? I've seen the Stones, what was it, '82 farewell tour? Or was that the Who? Ah, the mind is alert, but the body forgets... what was it I was going to say?

Well, at least the *idea* of having that kind of oracle job is great :-) I would imagine the details of dealing with all those lawyers and agents would be my death-by-ulcers.

I really appreciate whoever got Berlin and Tears For Fears though.

I was a fan of fusion music in the '70's, but that's way too obscure for this crowd, I'm sure. But I have to wonder if whoever came up with Oracle's Fusion knew about that?

Too bad Fripp went over to the dark side:
