His whole story is just sad. What a waste.With respect, Brian Kidd, I couldn't disagree more. The last few years has been a renaissance for Brian. We've had several CD's and several triumphant tours. Of course his voice is not what it used to be - it's his music that matters the most. And his music is being heard again, performed expertly by his hand-picked band.
We've already heard excellent live performances of many Smile songs - the "Cantina" version of Heroes and Villains was magnificent; Surf's Up, as well. At the worst, Brian is taking a few victory laps to acknowlege his love of music and his fans. At best? Well, we'll just have to wait until we hear what he's got in store for us when he performs Smile next year.
Who would have thought, in the dark days of the 70's and 80's that Brian would get healthy enough to accomplish what he's done in the last few years? Sure there were wasted years. But how can you say "his whole story is just sad" when the story has a happy ending?
