    For such a “fan friendly” band, it’s extremely disappointing that over the past year we got absolutely nothing from them. I don’t count merch and livestreams of old shows. They really couldn’t get together and play some live streamed music ? 
    No offense, but at this stage of their career - 31 years in - it's amazing they're still here at all given how much they've given to fans. And they're still humans, also with families - i'm sure just like myself, trying to survive during this. I know I could barely think about my work at several points last year. They don't owe us anything.
    Yea…. This is the more sensible, other side of my earlier post. I can’t help but to feel that way sometimes though. 
    I get it. I've felt the same way a few times. But in reality, it's just not, well....reality. for them to get together, fly across the country or countries to do something for the fans, putting themselves and others at risk. I think the ones who did the live streams did so out of necessity. 
    They could've livestreamed a show of them playing in their studio or garage or something. Or done SNL or Colbert remotely. Lots of bands did that over the last year or so. Since they put out a new album right at the start of the pandemic, I would've thought might want to promote it a little bit at least...
    the point is they weren't getting together during the pandemic. I think it was Stone who said he ran into Mike in Seattle and just waved from across the street. They just weren't together, so doing a live stream wasn't possible.

    Didn't Jeff just say they all got in the same room every 3 months or so? Anyhow, what are we arguing about this morning?  :)

    I've seen videos of band who did shows via zoom or some shit. They didn't even have to travel if they didn't want to.

    Who cares what other bands did? They aren't other bands. Why are you still complaining about the past? Nothing will change it. It makes much more sense to live in the present tense.

    What is this? Can people not want them to be slightly more active? Why does this bother you so much to the point of you quoting a lyric? Weird.

    Lol. Yeah what the hell? And it is presently still their new album. Shame on us for wanting to hear the band play their new fucking songs.

    Not only did they do nothing new new, they didn't do anything for the fans during the pandemic. Metallica posted several full concert live streams on YouTube. A week or two after COVID was declared a global pandemic, so began "Metallica Mondays" where they'd stream an entire show using video from the screen-feeds at the shows. All were free for all to view...of course. What did PJ do during the pandemic for the fans? A show or two that you had to pay to stream?

    PJ has never been obligated even as other bands have demonstrated that virtual shows could be done safely. PJ has lasted three decades in part because they do what they want and not out of obligation. PJ had the ability and opportunity to "share the light" during these dark times but chose not to do so. Pure speculation, but if the reasoning is a lack of want or desire, then that is a bit disheartening.

    See, I can quote song lyrics too and maintain thread integrity. :wink:

    Yeah I see above people take offense to that. 

    To your point above, a band could totally do shit via Zoom or whatever. After all, PJ taped DOTC for some sort of fundraiser thing, which was cool....

    The band doesn't operate based on your individual hopes or desires. It is the same thing. Let them do what they want and stop complaining about every. fucking. thing. that they do or don't do.

    No point in even bothering with someone like you. Good job coming to the rescue of PJ. Well done. I’m sure they appreciate it

    I mean, the band has it's own museum. They've been a nostalgic act now for awhile.

    Along with Superblood Wolfmoon, Take the Long Way really impressed me live. Both of those songs are middle of the road Gigaton for me, but they both had me fully engaged at the show.

    I've always felt that the outro to TTLW was kickass...also the outro to Retrograde.  Both just seemed very unique to PJ
