Pulling a hamstring hurts for sure. It's definitely something you can play guitar with though.  Unless you're a pussy.

Of course the stage will be slippery if you put oil on it.

When you're 61 and pull a hammy let me know how you are doing.

Ah, Jim from MO and Mick Jones (THE Mick Jones) were one of the few guitarists I have documented using a black Gretsch Roc-Jet of similar vintage to the one I own. And rocking is a lot like skateboarding - Easier as a young man, not so much as a grandfather.

Don't forget kids, It's not every one's cup of tea but when 10,9,8.. came out it was white-hot. Worldwide concern for Reagan/Global politics/coldwar in countries that were concerned about us catching a cold if America sneezed. MO had a strong message AND wanted us to shake are ass. It's as if that message shifted to worrying about their own backyard after the wall fell, so that was cool.

More cool was the first bass player started Wicked Weasel. Brilliant

So he still had 5 strings, right?

I saw their show this past spring, and was genuinely surprised how vibrant and timely many of those songs still are. Solid performance. They played the 10, 9, 8... album in its entirety, btw.

I saw Jane's Addiction do a great, high energy set (and I don't even like Jane's Addiction) and only the next day found out that Perry Ferrell tore his calf muscle at the beginning of the show and kept performing anyway.

Out of the dozens of bands I've seen live--including Rush, the Stones, and U2--none of them held a candle to Midnight Oil in their prime. Damn, what a great band.

Best wishes to Moginie.

I was about to say...  Foo Fighters would have finished the show.

Even if you don't like the music, you gotta give Dave Grohl credit for his work ethic.

One of the best concerts I have seen, was Midnight Oil at Red Rocks. Awesome show. I thought Peter Garett was going to get killed. He climbed up the lighting rigging and scrambled all over above the stage.
