    I totally understand. I didn't go to the show in Houston on Monday because of the Corona thing, either, even though I had bought tickets months ago. Big crowds bumping into each other and sweating all over each other just doesn't seem like a great place to be right now. Sucks for the bands and everybody who bought tickets, but better safe than sorry.

    I'm sure there's some joke to be made about how the opening night was at the Corona Theatre.

    Devin has both Anneke and Che on a song for the first time and it's a goddamn Vengaboys cover. Dude's officially lost his mind :lol:

    Indeed! I also love the humour. Laughed out loud a couple of times.

    Man he can still hit those high notes and screams in Deadhead so well. I don't know how his voice holds together so well after all these years, seeing as he's said he's never really trained it.

    I love that I can actually hear the bass in this mix for a change :lol:

    I am so happy that he is doing them. Realness like this, is therapeutic and badly needed in today's musical community. His selflessness & openness on the discussion of depression, anxiety, "am I actually bipolar", drugs, the mental health issues he faced when creating these records, and how his upbringing contributed to his problems are a must listen, for anyone who has struggled and continues to battle with similar mental questions/issues. I hope he knows how beneficial these podcasts have been. Where I grew up they call this "real talk", far beyond the point of simply "what guitar did you use on song number x."

    My heart does break for him though. In, I think it was for Terria, where he said that EVERYTHING he ever wanted to say, and feel, and play was done in that one album. Everything after that just never lived up to his expectations. He always wanted greater things, but emotionally he has exhausted every avenue he knew, and now just doesn't feel the same way about his music.

    I do wish that he finds his happiness internally, and he for sure does that to me with his music.

    Latest concert.

    Check out Almost Again at 10:00 live for the 2nd or 3rd time ever (people are saying). Yet again absolutely faultless vocals.

    I’m pretty sure Devy has been my favorite artist as far as the quarantine goes. Dude is continuing to put out quality content, the quarantine concerts have been fun, and I love the podcast. Ocean Machine was super insightful, and always felt it was a highly underrated album.

    In what way? Amongst Devy fans it will easily take the #1 spot on any poll. He practically dedicated the grand finale of the DTP to it.

    Towards non-Devy fans it is probably as obscure as anything by him.

    Probably just personal experience. I have a few friends that know SYL and DTP, but none of the early solo stuff or even the two Devin Townsend Band records.

    Christ those concerts are amazing. It’s great to hear all the details and layers that are buried under the wall of guitars that are usually there.

    The fan cam! Simply amazing. So happy to see him play Almost Again, even if it isn't exactly live. Fuck I love that song.
