Right, I am prepared to be slaughtered here, but here goes: Will get it out the way that I think he is a terrific sop, probably the best in the country right now and had really made the chair at Dyke his own. However, what's with all the goofing around on stage? The constant smug look on his face, the messing around, the chatting to his colleague on rep, making eyes at people in the audience. I know I will get the inevitable, 'ah he is just enjoying himself' or 'too many players look serious on stage' type responses, but there is a difference between enjoying yourself on stage and acting like a clown and I think this young chap crosses the line. There are 27 or so other people in that band who all understand the concept of a performance: being respectful on stage, realising a performance is not just about playing the music and demonstrating the type of 'class' that this great band is known for....so why can't he? I am only surprised that he has not been picked up on it before. For those who will say 'bah, you're just jealous'....save your breath (or fingers!), it's not about that. Nor is it a slagging off Dyke (read the paragraph above), I just think its sad that most of the great players who have donned that famous jacket - Smith, McCann, Clough, Roberts, Marshall, Baker, Thornton, Childs et al all knew how to conduct themselves but this young player (who has all the potential to be remembered as a player in the same bracket as the mentioned) doesn't.
