A Dull And Witless Boy: (rant?)
So this thought requires a few more characters than 140, so I’m taking to the blog. I would invite you, gentle reader, casual listener, enthusiast, to for a moment lend me a sympathetic ear.
To be frank: it bums me out from time to time that you just cannot play a new unrecorded song at a show…
This is a great question, too great to be answered using Tumblr’s piddling 140 character response system, and also because it seems that, rather than actually responding to Colin’s query, people are just saying “You’re right Colin, I love you and your music, etc etc,” which, while seemingly a positive response to the band/singer-songwriter, doesn’t really, you know, answer or debate his question. So I will respond with my knowledge of bootlegs.
Specifically, I will address two separate instances where fan interaction of a band’s new works has altered the end product of the band’s material. Sorta.
