Hi,

do you know if we can see the Aria Awards somewhere, on the web?

Thanks

Original Post

Feels great to see CH in the spotlight, enjoying all the attention, recognition and Love that they've earned (and deserved) over 30 years!

Was it just me or was anyone else shocked last night that Neil *ALMOST* forgot about Gryph during Crowded House's induction/thank yous speech? 

I'm sitting here listening to it and I'm thinking "What about Peter Green? I don't think anyone has gone above and beyond MORE for Crowded House over the years then what Peter Green has." 

Nice to see Paul & the late Peter Jones get a mention. Hessie's absence clearly still resonates with Neil and Nick. The HoF glory belongs to Paul as much as it belongs to Neil, Nick, Mark and now Matt. At least Paul's girls got to share the glory as they were in the audience.

Was also great to hear Mark speak for a change. 


If it doesn't show up on Ten Play - try Youtube. Most Aria related stuff shows up there anyway. 

I recorded the show, problem is Aria performances get official releases and my YouTube account already has a strike against it for copyright violation after uploading the Auckland webstream from the other day , so I'm on egg shells for the next three months.

Hahaha, I was thinking the exact same thing... "Neil!  Don't forget to thank Peter!"

Someone's (not me) uploaded the entire "Crowded House" video to FB. 

If you're a member of any of the Finn's FB groups, check the notifications.

Don't tell me your webstream vid has been taken down. I've been waiting for a moment or two to settle down to watch it. Grr.

Wish the ARIA twitter account could just upload the entire presentation instead of only the performance.

Stress less though, I uploaded the Hall of Fame induction to Facebook for anyone who didn't get to experience it (or just wants to watch it again).

This is the complete 23-minute video, and includes a humorous intro by Flight of the Conchords, a mini-doco, the band's memorable acceptance speech, quality tributes by Missy Higgins (Fall at Your Feet) and Bernard Fanning (Better Be Home Soon), concluding with Crowded House playing an awesome version of Distant Sun.

Enjoy!

i thought it was just beautiful that the band thought to invite paul's daughters sunday and olive along to the ceremony ... paul featured heavily in the induction video and it became clear why when neil acknowledged that the girls were in fact in the audience.

u can see in the video that when the camera first cuts to the band when they're inducted after seeing the video that nick is crying, still is when they're up on stage, sharon seems to be emotional too at one point ...

and that neil's voice cracks when talks about sunday and olive.

it's still so so heavy for many.
