Reply to "iHeartRadio stream? link?"

After watching the above video, I have to say that I am disappointed.  I know that the sound and video quality were not the greatest, but I heard and saw enough to determine that I think Neil is not the right man for this job.  Is it me or does Neil not really sound like himself?  He is actually sounding American.  It almost seems that he is trying to sing like Lindsey.  I am not sure if he is doing it on purpose or it may be just a subconscious thing.  But, that is disappointing to me as I have adored Neil's voice, NZ accent and all, for nearly 40 years.  And as some have already noted, Neil cannot quite get the level of angst in his voice that Lindsey made so prominent in these songs.  It might be better if they forego the prominent Lindsey songs, but it looks like they are determined to do some of them.   Have to say that I think that Mike is fitting in quite well, but it is Neil that is giving me the issues.   I was really hoping for the best for Neil, but sad to say that this is just not working for me.  It was also weird seeing the extra players being placed behind the amplifiers so as they are not really seen by the audience.  At least that is how it appeared to me in the video.    I know some bands (like Black Sabbath) have the extra players off stage.  I just don't get that.  What is the shame in having extra players on stage.  CH in the beginning toured with Eddie on keyboards because the needed that extra player.  At least, they acknowledged that he was there.  Eddie actually became a popular part of their show.  What is the problem with that.  Well that's my two cents anyways.
