Re: Zoom concert

Our church campuses do that as well in a pinch. There are TV church campuses doing it. This is one aspect of what I do for my business. Churches have encoders and decoders at the campuses, communicating on a church network. This is not the same thing as using Zoom or any other internet conferencing ...

Re: Zoom concert

It sounds easy. Technically it's not. Those things you are seeing on Zoom and Youtube are not live events. They are pre-produced. The same was true for the thing lady Ga Ga did on TV. All of that was pre-recorded. She was singing into the backside of the Neumann mic, which rejects sound and yields a...

Re: Guitarist Discussion

It just goes to show that the sum is much greater than the individuals and good songs trump everything.

Re: Guitarist Discussion

Another great Angus quote when asked what it was like to be one of the best guitarists in the world: "I'm not even the best guitarist in AC/DC." I would agree with him on that. I really like his playing and while admitting that it is a lot harder to play his stuff than you would initially think in ...

Re: New Petra Project

Greg is a great guy, fast worker, and he likes to play more aggressively (musically and tonally) than he is allowed to play in the context of Petra. Plus, he is inexpensive to feed. He was happy to get McDonald's when I picked him up from the airport. Brent, you're a cool guy ⭐️ Millions would say ...

Re: New Petra Project

Right. I agree. Some bands are personality-driven. Some are song-driven. Most people attending Foreigner shows don't know or care that Foreigner is 100% cover band from time to time. Not one person on stage is on any of their hit records. It was the music that drew people. People didn't really know ...

Re: New Petra Project

Well, some members of Petra were essentially hired guns, without equity, ownership, creative input or ability to borrow against royalties. There can be legal reasons (contracts, business arrangements) for not bringing new members in. It's all relative. Consider The Stones.

Re: New Petra Project

What about layered rhythm guitar and solos coming from one pair of hands and one guitar or stacks of GVX only backing vocals? The sad thing is, there is a generation of kids accepting fakery as the norm. They wouldn't know a real live show if it bit them.

Re: New Petra Project

Both of them have the same backing tracks (the album as recorded at Johns studio). They played to the tracks when the video was shot and then John went back and mixed in live parts, fixed things. His words.

The broadcast mix WAS the album.

Re: Star Song Greatest hits releases

According to Richard Green, all of the production master assets are in the label vault. I don't know if he meant the analog or Sony 1630s that were so prevalent back then. The 1630 was the actual digital source pressing plants used. If the budgets were low, they could very well have used the CD or D...

The second DVD had tracks plus the mix live show tracks plus overdubs. The first DVD was not live.

Re: New Petra Project

Two members, attitudes, business arrangements.

It's not enough to "learn to get along" as some have said. Reunions give new meaning to the movie title "Back to the Future".
