With the Dizzy Heights promotional tour now finished and the promise of Neil taking some serious time-off from the spotlight, not to mention Tim's semi-retirement (possibly due to health related issues) and Crowded House being parked on blocks in some proverbial garage, it feels like these days there's not much to look forward to when it comes to Frenz related music/events.
I know we've seen our fair share of dry spells in the past, and in most cases these have been instantly wiped from our memory by unexpected announcements or the first news of some great new project, however this time it feels a little different.
I can't help but feel like this forum has gone icy-cold over the past few weeks. Maybe it's because there is absolutely nothing on the horizon for 2015 (at least not that we the fans know of) or maybe it's the sign of a 40+ year musical career that's beginning to wind down.
With the release of Pink Floyd's Endless River this week, we're reminded of how easily 20 years can go by between albums and how much things change and how much is lost during that time, in the lives and careers of our favorite artists.
Neil deserves to take a break and pursue whatever interests he may want. Maybe we've been spoiled with as many projects as he's delivered over the years...
Here's hoping there's some really positive, upbeat and promising news from the Finn camp in the not-too-distant future.
