    Default Anybody else notice this?

    Dave is coughing an awful lot and I think this may be part of his issues with singing. Watch any youtube video , at any stage of the concert. I personally think he is suffering from Asthma, and if so he can be treated rather easily. I know he in his 50's and all that , but he smoked a ton or still does and I think he would benefit from an Inhailer. My son had asthma and I know what the syptoms are like , when your out of breadth you have short coughs and take long breadths to get sentences out. All he might need is a shot or two of albuteral and his lungs would be opened up for the show ......then maybe we would hear a scream or two , who knows?

    I was gonna write a long-winded thing about how Dave is almost 60, he smokes, and is just getting old, but I'll just say...

    No. I haven't noticed him coughing a lot. And I don't think he has asthma.

    I don't think he's coughing, he's clearing his throat. Saw the show in Rosemont last night, and he would be singing, and you could hear he was getting a frog in his throat, he would clear his throat. After about the 3rd song, Dave left the stage for a couple minutes, and came back out to say sorry, but he had to ask the venue to turn off the blowers because it fucked up his throat. He was actually pretty animated about it, and seemed kind of pissed.

    I'm sure the years of smoking hasn't helped. I smoke, and I've noticed my throat gets Phlemmy.

    nah not buying it , even in the interviews he sounds winded , and wheezy. Definatly a sign of asthma. Maybe smoke induced asthma , but some sort of respitory distress.

    I saw the AC show and I have said before ( did not have a floor seat but a fairly close 100 level seat) that it seemed he was 'ill' and that was from March 24. I thought he had a cold but it could be something he is fighting temporary or a condition. I thought he kept putting his sleeve up to his face/nose and coughing/clearing sometimes. To me he also seemed to 'rush' the show (not in a bad way) but perhaps he was not 100% that night. He could have a sinus issue too-those things can linger and you feel like crap..and you don't even have to be stuffed up since there are other sinuses....

    In any event I am sure they are looking for a mini break to come back strong.

    Probably just the cocaine. Would also explain the constant ear to ear grin.

    Maybe he's suffering from allergies. I know at least along the East Coast they say this might be the worst allergy season in decades. I imagine it could be the same elsewhere around the country.

    According to a biography, David Bowie used to smoke approximately 3 packs/day (!!!)

    ...Maybe it has something to do with being a flamboyant singer named David..? (Gilmour doesn't seem to have any problems.)

    This has been a weird winter/spring with the weather changes here in NY. Many more people have been getting sick too. I'm not sure if it is related to the weather or not. I actually had pneumonia (not walking pneumonia...full blown) and had to be in bed for two weeks last month. Since then, I haven't recovered vocally and still have a cough. I wonder if Dave had the same thing? It's been a real bitch trying to sing. Even a month later, the break in my voice seems to not smooth over like it did. Dave is either having a similar thing going or he's just getting old and has a respiratory issue (probably due to smoking). I wonder if he quit? Now is the time if not.
