Sorry to say, but the rehearsals today were in San Sebastian!

The planned recording on Friday will be audio only!

:/

what a strange video - seems in the wrong order with a long pointless middle section of the orchestra only practicing (or maybe performing Stockhausen?!?), but the opening sequence with Mike joining the orchestra is nice.

He already had. ;) I guess he sometimes dyes it and sometimes not. His brother Terry also got gray hair.

It is a bit of a strange video. It could some actual editing.

Put it on YouTube with the speed of light. ;)

It seems to me that now it's dyed  :/
But on some of MOTS promo pics,you can notice the touches of gray!

I really really wanna see Mike with gray hairdo asap,like his brother...fingers crossed ;)

About the video,nice to see Mike relaxed,and as one more musician in the orchestra.His arrival with his guitar case(at least it's not the banana-colour case he had when he was younger - discussed on Changeling),his preparations to play,very natural.I loved it.

There's really nothing glamorous about him and that suits Mike.

Wow, Tati what dope are those guys on, they should face compulsory drugs tests the sound is reminiscent of the garden of love era... how can Mike concentrate with that din going on. Should be titled Music Of The Shrooms, the conductor should control the orchestra, not the other way around Solti would never had allowed this...Still looking forward to a polished performance on Friday Night..  :D

I think it's all from the same camera. It's been edited, hence the impression of different angles.

:p  They were just rehearsing their individual parts simultaneously,
I'm under the impression that it's like that during every orhestras early rehearsals? Did sound quite cacophonic though.

Wonderful interview. Ha Ha! The interviewer got hammered for asking the "why?" question. Actually Mike's explanation of why he doesn't like why questions is probably the best and most coherent of the answers i've heard so far (although I don't think all artists would be miffed if they were asked why they painted a certan picture - they may be delighted to explain the chain of events that led them to put paint to cnavas in that particular configuration).

Hehe, I don't understand any of it. Couldn't they just use subtitles?
