I don't watch a lot of video, so maybe I'm late to the party. Does Russo use felt mallets very often? I've never seen it. Great option for a small venue and for dynamic tracks like Dark Star. More old day feel. Very cool to see.
You aren't interesting or clever when you write or speak in the lyrics of others. Rather, what are YOUR words?
Yes he did smile a bit. I do not know whether it was the quality of the video and appreciating their interplay when playing (though I have seen them a number of times up close), or if they were having a unusually fun time in such a small venue so close to home, but I nevertheless was heartened to see that they appear to still be having moments of fun and hopefully joy,still playing their music after all these years, I am sure many times it has not been so easy.
