Just finish watching Brit Floyd, a Pink Floyd tribute band, on Paladia. It was...not entirely an empty performance. It's hard to describe. All the notes are there, but the soul of the sound is missing. The subtle inflections in tone, in the "story" of sound, ... is missing. It was kind of like eating celery...you know?? More energy goes into the experience than you get out of it.
Now I have to go dig up a Pink Floyd Live album to go get a fuller experience...
It's the difference between watching them live and on YouTube. Live , they feed off the audience and this gives us a richer experience. If you get the chance to go to one of their shows, I would take it.
If it's the same tribute band I think it is they already do, and have given a few shows in my area over the last few years. I'm not sure though, whoever recorded their radio adverts didn't speak clearly and I thought he was trying to say something like Rick or Bret, but Brit would fit as well.
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, waging all things in the balance of reason? Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful? --Zachris Topelius

I can't comment as I've never seen a tribute band of any kind. But anyone who does his bit to promote the Floyd to a wider audience deserves a pat on the back.
I just recently discovered a video on YouTube featuring Gary Moore and BB King. Bloody 'eck! To hear two guitars talking to each other like Moore's and Lucille is something special. It reminds me what we lost when Gary Moore died and it reminds me what will be lost when BB King says goodbye to Lucille.
