Good find ,that's a really good watch! JDB plays about with quite a few of the solos so he must have been in a playful mood

Don't know if this was mentioned already, but this sad news appeared on my news feed just now.

Disk beginning to rotate, faster, becoming a sphere of paler gray. Expanding -

Inner eye opening to the stepped scarlet pyramid of the Eastern Seaboard Fission Authority burning beyond the green cubes of Mitsubishi Bank of America,
and high and very far away he saw the spiral arms of military systems, forever beyond his reach.
And somewhere he was laughing, in a white-painted loft, distant fingers caressing the deck, tears of release streaking his face.

Some of the production on GT doesn't quite stand up anymore (and maybe didn't even at the time) but it's safe to say that no other producer could have made Motorcycle Emptiness into the absolute beast that it ended up being. He had a massive hand in how that song was built and it absolutely changed their career.

No idea if it means anything significant, but the official Manics page on facebook is busy changing profile pictures, etc (although they don't look like new ones...)
