It’s hard to accept “ I honestly mean no offence “ when it’s followed by comments like “ people make silly comparisons ..”
just because you don’t agree with them doesn’t make them silly .
Paul was a massive part of the band , but I remember when Peter took over , I invested just as heavily in the band then . I loved how his drumming made the band sound , just as I loved the way Paul played .
Neil and Nick were 2 thirds of the original line up . It’s not perfect , but it’s Crowded House if they want it to be and works for me . I wish they had gotten Mark in at the ground floor but they didn’t .
Im afraid I don’t understand your thoughts on what makes a Crowded House album at all . I know what does for me , and I can live with that just fine .
