Re: Do you think PSB should postpone the DREAMWORLD tour because of covid-19?

On another note....I would love a in studio streamed concert for a fee. the sound quality would probably be great without crowd noise, and then, they could sell it also after.

Re: Do you think PSB should postpone the DREAMWORLD tour because of covid-19?

There is some good news. they were saying that Chinas's infection rates are dropping fast, on both levels they are learning what to do as far as containment and possibly the virus is doing what they usually do which is blast thru the population and then it sort of slinks away. and then you just have...

Re: Do you think PSB should postpone the DREAMWORLD tour because of covid-19?

I know this is no consolation to anyone who gets sick, but they are saying the infection rate is a way out of this as this is how immunity happens with these viruses. they run thru the population, do its thing and people get immunity and thus a vaccine can be created. I have been taking the flu vacc...

Re: Do you think PSB should postpone the DREAMWORLD tour because of covid-19?

a few things. I also saw that article, but I dont think a blanket statement cant be made about those that recover having permanent breathing problems since, it has to take into account there appear to be varying degrees of infection depending on age and health factors. apparently,people who are infe...

Re: Do you think PSB should postpone the DREAMWORLD tour because of covid-19?

When I was over in Italy in 2014, I dont know if its the custom there but I saw people kissing each other on both cheeks. I suspect that could be a cause of high transmission rates once you factor in this thing had been probably spreading under the radar and people had no cause at that time to think...

Re: Do you think PSB should postpone the DREAMWORLD tour because of covid-19?

One take away I see from the numbers is its appears in relation to the infected, the death rate appears low. another words, the majority of the infected are getting it,suffering thru it and riding it out and recovering. I suspect that the statistics would by and large paint a picture of the usual su...

Re: New single - I don't wanna

I'm surprised people aren't a bit more miffed about the reduction of b sides to one per single. It's like the 80s and early 90s again the difference being that albums were more frequent then. However I suppose Agenda and Laundrette make up for it a bit. Me too. maybe they think they are putting out...

Re: Spotify

An extended member of my family who works for apple told me they were going to wind down I-tunes music buying site and switch to a subscription template so people will just stream music and not own. I am fairly devastated as thats where I buy 100% of my music and they have been so good lately with u...

I'm just too old. I remember the panic inducing fear the media causes with the last rogues gallery of pandemic of the year, SARS, west nile, ebola, swine flu. they get people all worked up terrorize the airline industry, the stocks drop and then INSERT VIRUS HERE suddenly dissipates and then they ar...

Re: New single - I don't wanna

While I have issues with the overall album and not really loving alot of the songs, I have zero issue with the lyrics. Hotspot is a fantastic set of Neil lyrics, especially "Wilo the wisp" and happy people. I dont wanna" is nice but while I used to wish Neil wrote more lyrics about love and life, I ...
