HemiBeers Posted May 14, 2015 Share Posted May 14, 2015 Rehearsals are different than actually going on the road. The rehearsals take place in one venue but playing on a tour is a whole different thing because of the travel. Alex may be struggling because of his arthritis or may just be he's not in the tour rhythm yet. I would imagine it takes most bands a week or two to settle into touring mode. Also, he's playing a double neck guitar during Xanadu and i'm not sure how much those things weigh but i'm guessing they're probably a little heavy for a 62 year old man with not much upper body muscle to carry. If he's being careful with his playing and trying not to mess anything up then good. That means we're guaranteed to get the best playing possible from him. I hope it's Alex just trying to play everything right and not his arthritis causing him problems. I give them huge credit for the double necks, but i think they easily could pull off Xanadu with single necks and some effects which might make it more playable for them. There's a reason people don't play double necks unless they really, really need too...they're awkward as hell. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
