love them, but they should release some stuff.. their last album is from 2003? 2004? can't remember..
they were touring in Brazil a couple years ago.. I went to 5 of 6.
spend my whole life thinking that I would never see them, so I had to enjoy it.
I even took the same flight with them... hahahhahaha. funny days.
Great band. I know them from the start with The Hurting which is a great debut album in 1983 but 1985 Songs from the Big Chair is a masterpiece. I went to see them on The Seeds of Love tour in 1990 in Rotterdam. Great concert. Maybe I will go to see them in Amsterdam or Antwerp next year.
"I'd spent an evening with Keith Richards and Mick Jagger, and another guy called Peter Wolf who used to be in the J. Geils group. They were sitting around the piano, singing these old '50's and '60's pop songs, and blues songs and bluegrass songs. It seems like my record collection didn't go back that far."
