That was sort of fun. Shows that he has too many toys. :|

I suppose that is the new paradigm, put up videos to subscribers as opposed to put out original music. From what we have learned about the music industry, that may be a welcome shift to support an active musician directly. I wonder if the internet behaves like radio and there is a royalty to pay to the copyright holders? :?:

I wonder if you think Bill Nelson has too many 'toys'?

I thought that Andy's cover was somewhat better than the standard tribute copies of Bowie's song, mainly because he launched into a solo of his own at one point which brought another colour to the piece and took the tune out of it's original context for a few moments. This is what I personally prefer from cover versions, an interpretation rather than a slavish copy. And Andy appears to be a very competent one man band too! :wink:
