    Default Dave's little ramble The Trouble with Never

    Seen my first VH show on Sat in Toronto and I am still walking on air! Amazing!

    Was wondering if anyone can remember what Dave said during The Trouble With Never - I remember him remarking something about going into business meetings and expecting someone to lie, etc - was some really good stuff he was saying but honestly cannot remember.

    Does anyone remember? Perhaps he has said it at other shows...?

    Something about him playing dumb in a business meeting so he could see what their faces looked like while they were lying.
    It was funny.

    basically he was talking about having to learn "the business" of music over his time in rock and roll. And then he talked about going into a business meeting and the first thing he'd always ask was "what are we gonna pretend to not know about today". He would never get nor expect an answer. He just wanted to see what people would like when they were lying.

    Playing dumb often works...anyone who knew anything about his family background or investigated his lyrics would know that Dave is far from naive.

    During Dave's "The Trouble With Never" breakdown rap beginning at 2:51:



    The part about business meetings that the OP was asking about starts at 3:30.
