Same if you don't want to read what he says in other topics, or anyone for that matter, if they don't correspond with exactly how YOU want someone to think.


Yeah, I agree. It also applies to your reply to my reply.


Fantastic. I was hoping you'd be able to deduce the utter redundancy in your post to him. I had hoped my post would allow you to take a step back and not feel so compelled to post your own thoughts on how others should live their life and how to think.

Glad my post was able to reach you. Feel free to reply to this, I know you must.

No, it's not a must, it's a choice. I'm not compelled to tell anyone else how to think or how to live, I've just got as much right as you or anybody else to suggest a favourable choice (in this case, ignoring) if I feel so inclined.

If someone's annoyed at Brian and Roger touring with Adam they can simply refrain from seeing them live. It's not an order, it's not a rule, it's not a law, it's just a comment. A Captain Obvious sort of comment, but a comment nonetheless.

Then again, if you criticise the fact I'm allegedly telling others what to do, while you're doing the same to me, then you're in no position to moan about it anyway.


John hated Hot Space. Frederick's favourite singer was not Paul Rodgers. Rog didn't compose 'Innuendo.' Witness testimonies are often inaccurate. Wales is not in England. 'Bo Rhap' hasn't got 180 vox.

Oh not moaning, I don't care, just pointing it out to you as you seem oblivious.

I see you doing it in just about every topic.

Hope this helps.

There are hundreds of threads in this forum, I seriously doubt I'm 'doing it in just about every topic.'

If you don't care and still took the time to write to me about it and then check my response, then I wonder what you'd do if you did care. You seem oblivious of that as well.

The strategy's quite sneaky, though: had I refrained from replying to your previous post, it may have looked like you'd 'won' by 'shutting me up'; since I did reply, it may look like you were right and I had some sort of uncontrollable desire to keep arguing, thus having you 'win' in that case as well.

What can we make of these quotes by Brian ???

Really their last tour??


**Yes, still grateful ... but the amount of energy in one body has a finite limit !
** what the back of the tour T-Shirt says ! You start to ponder what you took on, and how many days you have left to make these kinds of choices.
**Around this point in the tour, you start to ponder ...
**Good Morning ! Back on the horse ! We're bound for Dublin's fair city. Where the girls are passing pretty. Nice day for it ! I'm grateful to see the Sun. And grateful to be healthy enough to do this.
**Another day, another exercise bike !!! It's the best way to start the day ! Kick-starts the body and clears the brain ! I feel .... erm .... GOOD !

I personally do not think we will see them tour to this scale again.
Possible selected dates in Japan and Asia next year on the back of what is already booked but another long American and Euro tour would seem doubtful.

Every tour Brian seems a little less happy about the travel and toll it takes on himself. They are getting older and it must be a strain and if they are to consider going round again ( farewell type thingy ) then it would have to be done different to enable them to maintain energy and enthusiasm for the whole tour.

Hopefully enthusiastic crowds will carry them over the finish line for the next few weeks

Last tour? I think it's very likely.
I said during the N.A tour cracks were starting to show...it's becoming more obvious now. I just hope he doesn't fall ill or end up depressed again.

I am sure once he gets off the road and returns to saving the world and righting all wrongs in politics he will be a happier bunny

I really hope that this tour isn't their last tour, I would really love to see them again. The chances of them coming to Belfast (or Ireland again) is very slim, but even if they only did mainland UK I would travel to see them again.

I thoroughly enjoyed the show, Brian and Roger were fantastic as well as Adam.

One thing I should note is that, my aunt and uncle were lucky enough to get to the very front of the standing area, right against the front barrier. They said they noticed Brian being 'slow and sluggish'. I personally didn't notice this but anything is possible.

depressed? that will happen when you play a Greatest Hits setlist for over 12 years since PR came onboard. ;)

I'm pretty sure they're at the point where not touring would feel like dying quickly for them... Brian is 70 already, you can't ignore that.

If no other health issues arise, they've got 5 more years tops - which is still a lot for them.

During Fat Bottom Girls in Toronto, I saw Brian run and he looked visibly in pain after that. He tried to hide it with a smile. I personally think they will stop touring soon. If you read is instagram he is already saying stuff like that its taking a toll

It appears you do have some uncontrollable desire to keep arguing. Hmm. I guess I hit a little too close to home with using your own reply to the OP. Appears to have struck a nerve.

Just trying to help you take a step back and look at yourself.

Hang in there, tiger.

No, you didn't strike a nerve or anything. I replied because it was a message directed at me. You, on the other hand, replied to what I'd written to someone else (who'd already replied, by the way).

And now you're all condescending again... suit yourself. Keep moaning if you will.

They're 70 for gods sake. When my grandparents were 70 they were retired for 5 years or more and did nothing besides a walk through town, reading a book etc. I'm 32 and two days of travelling takes a lot of energy already, let alone 6 weeks of travelling every day.

Really, really annoying that you end most of your comments with "Hope this helps".

But everyone's free to say what they want, generally, etc. etc.

I respect your right to an opinion, etc. etc.

Turning into somewhat of a circle-jerk here.
