Whoa, This is HEAVY!!!
The CLUB is Ending??? ENZ-ing(?) Say WHAT now??!!
No more FOTE??? Inconceivable !!!
And Just two years after the triumph of The SYD Opera House redux - what a gig !!!
I`ll take an order of "I didn't`t see this coming" with a side of "I never thought it would EVER happen" .
I mean as long as there are fans, they`ll need a club...right??
After a year of too many disappointments, I don`t think I can handle another one?!!!
First off, of course, I`m sure all of us will say a HUGE thank-you to Peter Green for all he`s done for us fans over so many years!!! What a legend he is!! Thank-you for your service, Pete. I`ve had so many fantastic experiences , thanks to you!
Best of luck with the next phase of your life Enjoy it!!
But we`re still gonna need a club...even if it`s not FOTE and run by a legend
( I wonder why Neil and co never dreamed up a succession plan...having said that, even after 20 years in the CLUB,
I`m still basically clueless about specifics of who owns what and how it exactly it was run/ set up in the 1st place. )
Anyhoo - Neil clearly is taking the same route as Macca...he`ll be performing until he drops...
Which means more albums and live shows...which means we`ll **ALWAYS** need a club if "only" for...
1. Early news of, and access to, TICKETS to the gigs!!!
2. Access to soundchecks!!! ( don`t think I`d get too far trying to get in on my own steam...)
3. Signed copies of the new CDs
(and that`s just Neil!!! There`s also Liam & Elroy both making music for years to come, plus ex (and hopefully future) Crowdies, ENZes - doing albums & tours, not to mention Tim )
Also only ever available from the Club...
4. Exclusive audio and video i.e. the magnificent "Club CDs" and DVDs and other performances past and future,
like radio shows...NONE of which one can, or will be able to, buy at your local JB Hi-Fi!! (well us Aussies / Kiwis anyway)
And even if FOTE is ending btw (which it is) surely it needs to END/ ENZ with a BANG!
Not a whimper.
We need a final fan club show...with all the fans that can get themselves to Melbourne (I presume)
with Pete as the guest of honour!
How`s about it?
PS what are the various Finns, Seymours, other Crowdies & ENZ making of this news?
MERRY XMAS ALL
