Re: AT&T Blue Room to Webcast Crowded House from Coachella

Romer ·
Mishima, I respectfully disagree. I love Paul Hester, but Matt Sherrod has skills that he adds to this band, as well. His heavier presence has been a welcome addition, and I think CH has has sounded excellent/rejuvenated from the several recent shows from which I've seen or heard clips. If you're saying that Matt doesn't fit the picture in terms of his stage banter, I'd agree in that his on-stage personality seems to be quite different than Paul's, but his drumming skills certainly can't be...

From the San Jose Mercury News: Coachella, Day III By Shay Quillen Monday, April 30th, 2007 at 10:20 am in Music, Shay Quillen, General, Coachella. Thousands of Rage Against the Machine fans this weekend wore T-shirts reading “The Battle of Coachella.” On Sunday, the Battle of Coachella was held, and Crowded House lost. Three hours before Rage Against the Machine’s first show in seven years, Crowded House attempted to play its first big show in more than 10. But if there’s a band less suited...

The Ann Arbor concert was excellent, although, since it's the only one I'm attending this tour, I can't compare it to their other shows. I've seen Neil once before with his brother, but this was my first CH concert, and my wife's as well. Neil has played in Detroit the past few years, solo and with Tim, but said he hadn't been to Ann Arbor for at least a couple decades. As a local, I appreciated that he didn't dismiss the city as more or less another part of Detroit, as Ann Arbor's...

Hi all, first-time poster here, though I've been a major Finn fan for many years. I too was at the Ann Arbor show last night (so glad they played here rather than in Detroit or the 'burbs), and was blown away by the performance -- Neil was in fine voice, despite reports of a cold, and the guys seemed to be in high spirits and genuinely appreciative of the enthusiastic crowd. I missed a few chances to see the band back in the '80s and '90s, so I made sure that I would not miss this one. We...

Re: Crowded House-Peter Jones

adidasman ·
Being quiet and lacking personality are far from being the same thing. And, as a musician, I found nothing compelling about his playing. (That doesn't make me right; it's just my opinion.) I will, however, stand by my original statement. I've nothing against Peter Jones, but he was, as far as I'm aware, never a member of CH - any more than Mark Hart was before TA. He was a sideman, a hired gun. Matt Sherrod is a member of the band, hence him rightly being described as Paul Hester's replacement.

Re: "Second Chance" Songs for the new album...?

The Pineapple Head ·
I would actually choose Anthem. Purely because I think the lineup of Finn, Seymour, Sherrod and Hart would create a great rendition of it. In many ways it is similar to a song that could go on Time on Earth or Intriguer due to it's emotional tones but triumphant feel.

They broke up rather than have to grasp that particular nettle,...

My goodness - those of you hacking away at Matt Sherrod for his "new and improved" quote need to relax. What would you expect him to say? "Well, it's going to be worse, but we'll have a go anyway"? "I didn't know Paul Hester, but I'm going to pretend to be reverential and pious and and all that, just so I don't tick any of the all-too-fragile Crowdies fans off"? Saying something is "new and improved" is just a figure of speech; let's not read too much into that, OK?
