    I don't know if anyone else has seen it, but its really quite awesome. Jack Bruce looked reallly old, but he's still awesome. Anyway, my main concern was that he rarely (if at all) used his warwick signature reunion bass. He used his fretless corvette most of the time. Anyone else notice this? I was dissapointed... :(

    Bruce alludes to that in the interview section of the DVD...That some rehearsals were performed with the retro gear (EB3/Marshall, possibly including the Warwick signature version) but the results were unsatisfactory in the context of modern sensibilities.

    The chops and tone were there...wonderful intonation on the fretless, so I chalked it up to 'dowhatchalike' and enjoyed the show.

    I dug it! I thought they played great....and Jack's vocals are still some of the best rock has ever produced! IMHO :cool:

    It's been tough for me to forgive Ginger Baker for chugging his way through his first liver while others (especially kids) are still on a waiting list through no fault of their own.

    That said, I'll still check out this DVD sometime soon.

    Just seen it.
    Jack is the man.
    One of the main reasons I picked up the bass.
    He still played great.
    An what a voice.
  6. The DVD is very good!!! Highly recommended... Eric Clapton is good, but Jack is GOD!!!
