Canada is a really great country in so many ways (sorry for the shameless plug). I could go on and on� I can�t speak for other Canadians but I think many of us have mixed feelings about this situation (not including our Prime Minister�s Communications Director who obviously is not a Bush fan). I think most of us feel that the U.S. is our more powerful, popular, wealthy and successful older brother (or sister). Sometimes you feel jealous of what they have and the attention they receive, but...

Gav yes I love the track suit/exercise stuff,,classic footage, and because itw as on Spellbound as you said we didnt use it as an Egg but its the perfect stuff for that. John agree totally...plus the other way the tv stations can make money is that, the footage IS licensed per territory..so we currently have paid for it for Aust/NZ....so if the Enz DVd ever had a USA release the ABC etc would get money again, same for a European release etc.....between you me and the gatepost we Zone Free it...

Yes, it bugs me a lot. I feel rather powerless about it, too. And somewhat voiceless... I happen to be living in Texas, the breeding ground for war-mongers like George Dubya... and the public opinion here seems to be highly supportive of this sh*t. Not that I'm going around asking people their opinion or anything, because I find its safer not to discuss politics with people around here...

Well, I used to be pretty full-on at concerts, up the front, in the mosh pit etc... but I'm fairly well-built (height and weight wise) for a girl, and more than able to take care of myself. Probably the worst injury I got was at a (get this) Split Enz show in Auckland, and that was inadvertent.

Does a Tim Finn injury count? We saw him in Napier, New Zealand on Oct. 12, 2001...and during the jam session part of "Weather With You," Tim was twirling his guitar around, in preparation to go back into the chorus, and the end of the guitar whacked him right in the head, pretty hard! You could hear the whole crowd go, "OOOOH!" and it obviously had to hurt, because we were in the front row and heard the WHACK it made. It left a big red mark, and I hope he used ice later. Nobody would have...

Not so much an injury but a near death experience. V2001, Powderfinger had just finished and they were running out of time before Neil Finn was meant to be on, so my friend & I thought we'd be fine staying where we were (about 2/3 rows of people back from the barriers, roughly in the middle of the crowd) when on came some band whose name began with I.

Well, the one word that immediately pops into my head is: "warmth" I think it comes across in a lot of his lyrics, and certainly in the way he sings. And he just seems to exude warmth towards the people around him. I haven't met him, but from watching his performances, webcasts, interviews, etc., that's the major impression I get. I do feel slightly silly answering this question.

I've never realy understood what made Tears For Fears such a popular act in the USA, when they never really made it THAT big in their homeland. Sure they were popular...sort of more than ABC but not as much as say, Duran Duran or Spandau Ballet. I think they got quite a bit of college radio airplay and coverage on MTV when it opened in the US, so maybe that would explain it. Any US fans want to comment?
