    Whoa! Super cool.

    I was there.

    This soundboard recording confirms what I felt at the show: the bass was stupidly loud and overpowered Ed's guitar. It was ridiculous.

    Really?

    I'm only three songs in, but he sounds quite good. As I said above, I was there, and people didn't complain about his vocals.

    What did they complain about?

    They complained that VH didn't play Dreams or WCTBL... I'm not even joking.

    It's nothing new. Instead of sticking to the original melody, for some inexplicable reason, he tries to go an octave higher and then it's just a train-wreck. It's self sabotage.

    I totally get what you're saying, but his pitch was pretty good at this show. He was mostly hitting those upper-octave notes.

    To me, what's way more distracting now -- and at the show -- is/was Wolf's attempt at being John Entwistle. It's ridiculous.

    I wouldn't be surprised if Dave was over-singing to try and hear himself over the stupidly loud bass. He was constantly messing with his ear plugs and at the start of the show was asking for the guitar to be turned up. Obviously that only reflects the monitor mix, but it's possible the bass was that loud on stage. I was maybe 15 metres from the stage on Ed's side and the bass was uncomfortably loud.

    I agree with this 100%.

    Wolf's playing and tone is absolutely inappropriate. John Entwistle he ain't...

    It's not an anti-Dave, pro-Sam thing. With Sam, you don't get Romeo Delight and all the other CVH tunes. You need Dave. But Dave singing the original melody.

    I thought Dave's acoustic guitar playing was on point, during the little improvisation thing he did. He immediately started singing some high stuff that sounded terrible, though. Keep it low and mid range, Dave! You don't sound good when you go high!
