Thanks for the great post Peter.

Exactly. He lived off the genius of Neil Finn for more than 10 years playing bass lines already written, enjoying the life of a rock star, earning heaps of money... and yet he still wants to make Neil look bad to the general public (and a page 9 article in Australia's highest selling tabloid is appealing to the dumbest demographic - people who's perception of Sir Neil will change for the worse).

...each time Neil tours Crowded House sell CDS, and a percentage goes to Nick, and Paul (Mark/Peter/Tim)... they do not have to do a thing.
Make that Nick living off Neil for... 18 years? Wink

Was Neil a controling force behind Crowded House, yes and I am so glad he was, in many cases, but I can think of hundreds of examples where Nick and Pauls input was always part of it.... Neil was the leader, I think everyone would agree with that...but Crowded House really was Neil, Nick and Paul...
Neil (IMO) had every right to be the controlling force behind the "band" - he started up the band, sang lead vocals... and of course wrote the songs - which (IMO) cancells everything else out. I'm not agreeing/disagreeing with what you're saying PG, just incorporating my opinions in & using your post as a base Big Grin .

I'm not sure if the article was taken out of context, etc, but it just feels like a really cheap shot, because Nui (journalist who we have all known for years) couldn't get a Tarmac Adam article printed in the Sun without some sort of
beefed up Crowded House piece for placement......
Yeah, quite possibly. It just so happens that there was another article in the Herald Sun's Hit Entertainment Liftout that same day (today) about Tarmac Adam:
TARMAC ON THE ROAD: Crowded House fans might like to check out a new band by the name of Tarmac Adam when they play their first gig tonight at 8:30pm at the Corner Hotel, 57 Swan St, Richmond. Tarmac Adam don't necessarily sound like Crowded House, but do feature two former members of the Australasian supergroup, bassist Nick Seymour and drummer Paul Hester. The band will use the gig to launch debut album Hand Held Torch. Tickets are $17.60 + BF from the venue. Phone: (03) 9427 9188.

I actually met Nui Te Koha 2 years ago @ the Herald Sun & he didn't really talk much. He had his own little closed off office & seemed a bit preoccupied with work. Ah well...

No offence to anyone who may be... er... offended. Just my views.
