Aside from laughter, the only thing I felt when watching him on the telly was relief - relief that I didn't ever decide to shell out £60 to watch him in Manchester.
I couldn't believe how poor he was. His acoustic stuff is great but very little of that made it into the set. I'd never heard' ROCKIN IN THE FREE WORLD before and I hope I never hear it again. It ended about 6 times. That kind of drawn out bullshit is all well and good if you're Jimi Hendrix, but when you're some old witch man who isn't even a good guitarist, it's almost embarrassing.
I was always under the impression he was a genius, but after seeing that cock-rock set of boredom, I'm not going anywhere near his catalogue.
In the past I've disagreed with Pyramid decisions like Jay Z and Arctic Monkeys, but that performance did everything possible to support the idea of putting someone young and different on.
