Man. You just can't trust anyone these days. . .
Our PBS stations are running their never ending fund raising marathons and last night one station aired nostalgic British rock music. One segment was Denny Laine doing a couple old tunes with some kind of band, maybe a tribute band or makeup band, IDK. Anyway. . . During the performances, the cameras switched from this angle to that angle every freakin' 1.0 - 2.0 seconds (drives me nuts) so we get to see close-up shots of players doin' their thing. Trouble was, they were all fakin' their thing - on both of the songs.
They're on a large stage in a large theater with a massive audience and everyone is freakin' MIMING! Now why would Denny Laine be lip-syncing and miming guitar to his own material to a live audience? I'm not guessing about this, it was seriously obvious while watching. Drum hits were not matching, Laine's mouthing of lyrics that weren't there, guitar player's playing not matching up to the music..
What's goin' on here?
