Hydraulic failure of almost Spinal Tap proportions but what is really bad is Paul's voice. Just fucking awful. Give up.

Wow, his voice is terrible.

That performance is so lifeless. I get that they've done it all thousands of times, so there can't be much spontoneity—it's all muscle memory at this point—but it's all so utterly drab. Point at the audience, stick out your tongue, stomp two steps here and then back. It's a Big Mac and fries kind of performance. Everyone knows what they're going to get, it's not special or good, but it's familiar and reliable and that apparently is what everyone wants.

Good on Gene for not letting that get to him, at least in the performance.
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

I can't believe how loud Heston screams when he catches one of those plectrums.
