This exhibition seems quite interesting, it's a "multi-sensory experience" (from what I read in its article)
I hope Neil had fun :D the picture looks nice too.
Happiness is an option :)

Oh so pretentious... same old PSB after almost 40 years. I'd rather seen him sipping a beer in a seaside restaurant scribbling some new lyrics looking at the corona free sky.

Greetings,

Neil was vaccinated, wasn't he? I wonder what's the motivation behind the inclusion of the mask in this picture - a requirement of the exhibition?, fear that the vaccine isn't enough protection?, a fashion accessory?, making some kind of point? etc.

Retro. :)

As far as as I'm aware, masks are still mandatory for everyone in most countries, with the exception of the US, where CDC guidelines have recently allowed vaccinated people to take them off.
The vaccine efficacy tests were done with everyone wearing masks, since half of them were given placebo. Therefore, the high efficacy was achieved with the masks involved. The US estimated that vaccines offer enough protection on their own. Personally, I don't think they'll be able to enforce the rule for unvaccinated folk to wear them... and I'm still wearing mine. Nothing about vaccine doubt - they're not magic, and you want to protect yourself in multiple ways. In fact, might continue wearing them each winter.
Neil is also more susceptible to having a tougher case due to his age, and we need him for at least a bit more on this lonely planet :)

Good point. That's probably what it is. Cheers.

vaccines aren’t a force field. The virus still has to get in your body. Personally, I’d prefer the virus never enter my body.
I sincerely *love* Disco 2 and listen to it straight through regularly.

all I was thinking when I saw the pic was I thought his mask would have been a bit more fabulous
those Magoo glasses will help him also...I guess studies show people who wear some sort of eye protection are a bit more protected.

Oh, did I write beer... I meant a cup of tea of course. Chamomile to be on the safe side.
