Mark: Live in Paris DVD impressions

Hey Bob,

Reason for my post is that I finally got a copy of the "Live in Paris" DVD and it is outstanding.

Kudos to you, John, and Dougie for getting this "out there" for fans. Thoughts:

- This is a special concert for me to see and have, as I saw my very first ST concert only a few weeks removed from the Paris concerts reflected in this DVD...I went with my mom and my older brother to one of the sold-out gigs in Berlin in late 1979 -- my very first rock concert and this brought back memories from (gulp...) 33 years ago!

- Versatility of all five musicians is amazing: Little things like seeing Dougie and Helliwell even taking their turns at keyboards during varied songs, as well as Roger and Rick effortlessly moving between layers of keyboard, vocals, guitar, harmonica, etc.

- Your drumming has always been under-appreciated, but you guy can flat-out play! No crazy Neal Peartesgue solos, but you guy are a rock.

- This gig really reaffirmed to me that there really aren't "Rick Songs" or "Roger Songs," but that the whole band made it work...big contributions from all on just about every tune...except for a couple nice solo acoustic tunes by Roger (quietest moments and two of us).

- Everyone in the band comes across in grand/fine form, sounding great, etc. so it's puzzling and disappointing to have seen the pissy rants from Roger's management team. Roger is an amazing artist and will hopefully break free from the stuff that distracts from his talent.

Anyhow, encourage everyone to get one...I found mine on Amazon.com.

Happy Holidays from Seattle,
Mark

John DeSimone: Thanks for all the motivational music!

I can still remember the evening a friend I had turned on to the drums when we were teens in the 70's introducing me to Supertramp. It was the song Rudy playing on the radio. After hearing that I began listening to the band and naturally focused in on your playing and heard the delicate sounds you incorporated along with the big drum sounds for the heavier parts of the songs. I always marveled at how your style of playing makes Supertramp sound so good. I saw the band at Darien Lake in 1997 and 2002 and thought you guys were incredible. John Halliwell said something to the effect that the band would not stop people from "lighting up" if they wanted. Immediately the smell of weed became quite strong and no one was harrassed that I saw. You guys are truly original and it would be great to see the band play again in the Buffalo, NY area. Best wishes for you and Jesse in your future endeavors! Cheers!
