I wish Ellen had given Neil the credence so many of us believe he is due, but at least he got more than a "Hi".
I got a chuckle at some YT FM critic who suggested Ellen's front row audience were like a bunch of seals, slapping their fins together at anything and everything.
Christine didn't even get a mention from Ellen or Stevie and was essentially never on camera. Perhaps she's not planning to stay in the band for long. But it was odd that they introduced Neil like he's a session player that no one would know.
