I think Muse are still are better live band, personally can't imagine anybody beating them.

Also what do people think about meg's ginger hair, I think its looks awsome... but yes it is about the music, I'm just letting my feminine side out

Never seen Muse live, but I'm not a big fan so...

Zero interaction made me kinda think they were just doing a job instead of really enjoying it. Don't get me wrong, they kicked a lot of ass...it's just a minor objection...if that.
Well I'm sure it has to do with Jack's idea of art. I mean, Rembrandt doesn't interact with you when you look at his works. Nor does Michaelangelo, Stravinsky, or Keats. I think to Jack, people are there to take in the art and too much stage presence would be (in his mind) self-glorifying. We're also talking about a man who could care less for the press. I think part of him shies away from coming off like artists he might feel aren't really artists.

This is no attack man, im just spinning it in perspective. When i saw them, he was the same. I felt it was par for the course.

After two years, you're still not sure how I'm gonna interpret your posts? A little more credit perhaps?

Anyhoo, I disagree, music is nothing like literature or painting, it's much more interactive than that. Why do gigs if not to please the crowd and connect with the fans? If they were just satisfied with making music and letting people enjoy it, why not just put out cd's and music videos and leave it at that?

As far as stage presence goes, he has plenty of it, he's a rock God and acts it (these aren't exactly geriatric shows), but it seemed to me like he was trying to faze out the crowd, like he was avoiding looking at us or acknowledging our existence...maybe he's just too into his music...

its not released in the UK until june 18th RT. I think the best song is Catch Hell blues or little cream soda, as far as the album goes, it has the potential to be my favourite stripes album but it isnt there yet.
