    Default DLR - "I forgot the ...... words"?

    By now this must just be part of his act on the tour. He's famously known for doing it in the old 1983 concert...but now it's seeming like every show, perhaps on a different song...but in the same way...."and this way to the chorus"...

    Being faked now?

    Nope , not being faked. He just cannot remember the words. It's obvious because On "Hang em High" the other night they were even written down for him on the riser and the words were still wrong or not sung altogether......but it was still fun to hear the song.

    But here's the kicker, has he ever done the "I forgot the fuckin words again" for more than one song in a concert? You telling me he forgets the words to exactly one and only one song per concert?

    Or maybe he just uses that line once per concert but missteps on lyrics multiple times. *shrug*

    He actually didn't say that in Boston or Manchester. For whatever that's worth. He might have screwed up the lyrics, but he never said anything about it.

    He's always done it but years ago he was waisted now maybe old age. Just like Steven Tyler falling down and keeps on singing.

    I believe he said it in Manchester -- before "Pretty Woman."

    He didn't say it in the trademark way... He just laughed!! I've never seen Dave have a better show than 3/13 in Manchester, NH.

    During one song he said, "this is like 'name that tune.'"

    Come on man - it's been part of his schtick forever. VH, solo, VH again - that's just what he did. It went right along with the "I'll fuck your girlfriend" line and jerking off with the Jack Daniel's bottle. Thankfully, he's dropped those last two, but he knows what value his comedy has to some and drops that line only occasionally right now - unlike in 07/08 when he did it pretty much every night on the same song. "Hang Em High" was an anomaly - he really didn't know the words, because he was reading off that sheet and the band hadn't played it since 1983.

    Who cares?

    Does it alter the show that much when Dave uses a famous quote of his from 28 years ago genuinely on a song he hasn't played since 1981, or, to get a nice pop from an audience?

    Kevin made it a point to slam Sammy if he changed or messed up on lyric, but Dave seems to get a pass. Personally, I think it is part of his shtick.

    In 10 years, I can see him trying some kind of Rat Pack thing where he and a bunch of guys stand around, tell lame jokes, and sing a few tunes.
