From Freeze through to Are You Experienced?, he was in full-on guitar
god mode. easily the hardest-rocking section of songs since the reunion
tour. Freeze was nothing short of deadly. the italian fans were just
eating it up, too.
his voice wasn't in its finest form. had trouble hitting the high notes
on Cynthia Mask, for example.
he said (and then repeated on the 13th) that DeChirico Street was
written in bologna. that michele thought she actually saw a sign that
read "dechirico st.", and that robyn merely thought it *looked* like a
dechirico street. i thought i'd in the past heard some different
explanation for the origin of the song. but maybe not.
he introduced I've Got Nothing But Time saying, "this song is on piano,"
then proceeded to play it on acoustic. tease!
Your Sign Language appears to be a brand new one. it could be a cover,
but i'm doubting that pretty highly. i'll attempt to post the lyrics
later, although it's going to be difficult, 'cause this song was smack
in the middle of the ROCK STAR portion of the evening's entertainment. Etews
