Didn't anyone else see...?
« on: August 31, 2010, 09:33:29 AM »
Just caught the #live4pakistan webcast where Ben had to play an electric keyboard with no sustain pedal.  Did some really fun stuff - 'Great Balls of Fire', 'Raindrops Keep Falling on my Head' and a lovely version of 'Lullaby'.  Just made me really cross to have missed the other webcasts (interview and playing) this summer.
I think I'll write a screenplay...

That was lots of fun especially Great Balls of Fire where he didn't exactly know all the words and almost took out the mic halfway through the song.  The solo in Lullabye was killer!  I heard they recorded it and it should be viewable online later...

I would have loved to have seen "Great Balls of Fire" and the others but I had to work. I certainly hope it shows up online sometime soon. :)

...'Raindrops Keep Falling on my Head'...

I would have really liked to have heard that one.
I like toast!

Here, I uploaded an mp3 of the raw audio here: Live for Pakistan.  Enjoy!

EDIT: By the way, the weird ping throughout part of the broadcast was not me, but someone in the studio's Gmail chat going off, much to the chagrin of the chatroom spectators.  Eventually they realized it and turned it off, but it does spoil some of the songs a bit.

Thanks for posting, great set and really good to hear raindrops, it's been a while!

A set with no sustain peddle, what can I say, the man has talent  \m/

Good show! Hopefully they will put the video up eventually.
There's always someone cooler than you, so learn to live with what you are.
