    Default Will Dave use a teleprompter?

    I read a few months ago where Steven Tyler now has a teleprompter with all the lyrics.

    Any idea if Dave would or has considered using one.

    Not real important, just curious.

    Always thought his lyric mistakes were more planned than accidental anyway.

    Dave hasn't been using a 'prompter on the solo tours...and last year, we were close enough that we woulda seen it.

    i don't think Dave considers the lyrics important enough to use one.

    Agreed, I don't think Dave has sang the complete lyrics to ANY VH songs live that i can think of. But hey, that's Dave

    Maybe Steven Tyler needs it for newer music or when they're going to do a cover or a deep cut that's hardly performed? I expect VH to do no new music, no covers, and few deep cuts--most of which will be repeated every night. In other words, VH's set will mostly consist of the same songs Dave has been doing solo for 20 odd years.

    I'm sure that even he remembers those lyrics.

    Well I'd just say that's because

    a) Dave doesn't really care

    b) his last 15 years of tours have been low-budget affairs so why spring for a teleprompter.

    Really, I'd hope he does have one. I can understand why these people do it, they have tons of songs, they are old, and the people are paying high prices and want to hear most of the words. I'm pretty sure that most people will agree that Roth's performances over the last 10 years or so (check youtube) simply wouldn't cut it for this reunion. He's got to at least know the words.

    A teleprompter is not necessarily for them to READ off it...it might be just incase they forget a word here or there....I know Steven Tyler has one but I can guarantee you he barely uses it because he moves around to much on stage!

    Plus Roth has played most of these songs exclusively for the past 15 years....he hasn't "forgotten the fucking words"....

    I wonder if the teleprompter at the US Festival during Romeo Delight showed the following:

    "hada need, second to none, wow, son of a gun, all right, et-it yoh, i forgot the f*ckin words."
    Right here I say....
