I dunno, I think he looked exstatic in 69, just happy to be on the job and really belting em out, just watch Thats The Way It Is, does the bloke performing Suspicious Minds there look to you like he’s not into it?

I've watched it two days ago, as a matter of fact. 

great, great performance.

but there is certain sadness and loneliness in his eyes. I see a clear invisible wall between Elvis and the exctatic crowd full of cheering ladies. that was no rock n roll audience, and I can't honestly feel how Elvis felt at home there

Well how the hell is Freddie Mercury (or anyone for that matter?) into it on a stadium stage?

There’s always an argument to be made ;) 

You are trying to annoy me, aren't you?

I took the fact that Little Richard is behind a piano as suitable grounds for omission, but if we are including him it is somewhat a tie between the two.

that's not difficult to answer. the various sing along interactions with the public. elvis never did that.

Why should the public be asked to sing - Rose did with Heaven's Dawawa also? I'm the paying customer. You're the singer. You sing the song you lazy wanker.

the customer is king, as they say.

I want to feel entertained, I want to feel a connection with the artist. otherwise I could just put on a record at home!

He looks like an Easter Egg after he takes his blazer off. And did he wear knee pads?

He’d better have the way he did those jumps onto his knees.

Stadiums are cold impersonal, there’s no such thing as stadium rock n roll, not really.

motley crue, AC/DC, the rolling stones, guns n roses, metallica..... their music comes alive in a stadium setting. fire, confetti, strippers, madness, moshpits...

you know, there was music made after 1959, you're aware of that yes? :P

Rock n Roll ain’t fuckin’ Coca Cola sponsored bullshit, its played in cavernous dives and bars and clubs, stadiums are for selling hot dogs.

Stand a million miles away from a couple of dots of a prefab stage and watch the show on a giant telly hanging over ya...and get yourself a T shirt on the way out for 20 quid, bollocks to that.

on the contrary my dear watson, that must be the single most uplifting performance I ever seen. that's something else than the granny music from the 50s, which my granddad is humming along to, with his pipe and dangling his knee

they are an absolute phenomenon, almost identifiying them with a whole nation. I see "the toppers" I see dutch attitude, partying, laughing, having a good time. it's one of the most purest examples of music directly stemming from a base culture, it basically advertises itself.

I never thought I’d see the day where you’d be lecturing me on modernism :lol:

yeah I guess It's come to something when someone who refuses to go past the 90s lectures someone who refuses to go past the 50s :lol:.

so yeah, compared to you, I guess you could call me a modernist :lol:

It's basically just carnival without the history and tradition behind it, isn't it? Adults dressing up, singing along to medleys, drinking a lot and having a good time. I'd rather get kicked in the balls repeatedly than attend a Toppers concert, but each to their own.
