Re: Could we hope for another PSB transformation and what would it be?

They’re never going to top the charts again. They’ll get a brief mention on the TV news when one or both of them dies. Perhaps a longer mention if they both died in some spectacular way. Lol I know this is kind of morbid but I found your comment really funny. Thank you! I was thinking of some Spina...

I wonder what he drives now...

Jeep Wranglers are so uncomfortable that older gentlemen tend to eschew them.

Re: DREAMWORLD TOUR: set list speculation. What are PSB going to play?

I would be very surprised if they did not play one of their most beloved and acclaimed songs.

Did they announce Top Ten hits only?

This is the greatest set ever.

It blows their 2010 Glastonbury appearance... out of the water.

Nope, it is still on every hour.

I think it just reached a certain saturation point. It has been overplayed.

Re: It’s A Sin - Years & Years cover

Elton John & Years and Years version is number 1. Years and Years version is number 46. PSB version is 52 Shouldn't it be the reverse? :) Their version was No. 1 when it really counted. It is rather amazing that 35 year old song is topping the charts. That has only happened a handful of times, ...

Re: It’s A Sin - Years & Years cover

It would have been nice to the Boys on the Brits. But haven't they performed the song twice already for the Brits over the years, including the historic collaboration with Brandon Flowers and Her Grace, the Duchess of GaGa? It does say something quite special that a song can be performed at an award...

Re: Their saddest songs

Regret is a form of sadness.

The Way It Used To Be.

The King of Rome is also wistfully sad. It has the perfect title if one knows Napoleonic History.

Re: Neil and Chris - Alcohol

There's a lot of drinking on their early tours. Just because it's champagne and white wine doesn't make it different. Chris talks in the Discovery DVD booklet about drinking alcohol during the concert, not just before or after. And they take strong sedatives/sleeping pills on transcontinental fligh...
