Si.....Sorry, but I have to leave the conversation. Too many in your group with a negative attitude about possible OG reunions. One member's attitude I am sure stems from animosity towards me, others attitudes stem from the fear that any reunion would take away from "their" Alice. I'll stay in my social media area (as flawed as it is) where original band fans are in a more hopeful and positive mode about the future of some form(s) of get together....Alice/Shep be damned! LOL
Strange response and a shame that you feel that way. Actually felt that this thread was better than some of the polarised and insulting ones of recent years. That period seems to have passed thankfully.
Certainly no fear here as my Alice is the same as yours, the one who joined a school band with his mates decades ago, finally hit the stars at the end of a run of great albums and then, after years of excess and stress found that he wanted something differen, went his own way and made a success of it.
Our differences? I seem to like the period 1975-2019 a lot more than you do, I am taking a view that there is no major debt to be settled and that there is therefore no obligation to do it. I'm also using a logic that over a period of 40+ years, people and priorities move on and change.
Si's list was far more comprehensive than mine and goes way beyond a few crumbs in my book. It shows to me that the guys are very much still relevant to each other's lives but clearly just not as prominent in Alice's personal and business life as you would wish.
It's all views and opinions here so I'll stick with my main point that a tour (large or small, residencies or multi country) would be booked if Alice wanted it. If he doesn't then that's his choice. He does though, clearly still want to keep in touch and if it turns into something more then so be it. Just can't see him turning his back on the variety of other areas of focus as that makes no sense at all when he is clearly enjoying it.
I have had my ACG fix in Glasgow. It was grea but it certainly and surprisingly didn't leave me wanting more. Turns out that I've moved on as well, That's life.
