I forgot to mention another sad piece of trivia that got me all excited!
When I was watching the Anniversary clip of Shark Attack, I noticed that the percussion roles were reversed. Noel playing drums, and Paul playing percussion. Was this standard for the anniversary tour? I always presumed it was noel playing the hi hats on the anniversary version of Strait Old Line, and speaking of this version of the song, has anyone noticed the absence of any vocals by Tim (except 'everybody into the pool'..). I swear that it's Paul singing harmony with Neil, and he's not singing Tim's part, but the middle harmony (if you listen to the studio version there is three part harmony on the chorus). Bit of a shame really, because I thought the song sounds tired and flat without Timbo on there. The guitar solo is also ommitted... though Eddie's synth is sounding more and more like a clean guitar as the years go by
Anyone else notice in What's the Matter With You that Neil tries to get Tim to do the What's the matter what's the matter what's the matter what'
s the matter with you bit at the end, but Tim obviously changes his mind at the last minute and Neil is left looking a bit of a fool trying to do it without him. Great look of 'concentration' on Tim's face as he stares at the neck of his guitar.
