What an awesome recap! I'm too busy savoring it to have more of a reaction than that!

Thanks, details-later! All the boys were in top form during the entire program, so it was easy to cherry-pick fun/crazy parts out of it.

You mean it's not normal to argue shades of magenta? (Must be a Gemini thing...)

Poor Simon. I mean, when you're middle-aged and you look back at youthful bodies in days of yore, nobody ever seems remotely chubby-with-a-gut.

I've got to figure out how to see this documentary. I've never gotten my hands on it.

Cheryl, some kind soul has put up Sing Blue Silver on YouTube in installments; the first part is here. It's a somewhat edited version, but it keeps all the footage of the boys. Definitely worth seeing.

Oh, lord, Nick and his shades of magenta... Nick's brilliant, but sometimes it's amazing the band ever got anything done, what with him getting all control-freaky over everything.

Thanks for pointing me to the YouTube clips. There goes my weekend! Thought I was gonna get stuff done, ha ha!
Morgan Richter said…
Cheryl, I hope you enjoy it. Heh -- there are worse ways to spend a weekend than watching Sing Blue Silver. Getting stuff done is overrated!

The Duranalysis is back! Hurrah! Having just seen the boys perform in my home town a few days ago this could not have come at a better time! I am so delighted. And have always loved SBS so it's all good!

Oh, hooray -- Willow23, I'm glad you got to see the boys! I saw them in October when they performed in New York, and it was plenty awesome.

Well, I watched the Sing Blue Silver clips online and I must say, the moment that Nick is pulled off Galaga screech-wailing like you described is my favorite part. Priceless!
Looking back at how awesomely Simon (and all, including Andy) performed onstage makes me wish I had been old enough to participate and appreciate them back then.

Love Nick's wail, though I also think there's a certain poetry to his "Terrible. Horrible. Vile!" about the lighting. Nick is endlessly entertaining. And yeah, they were all such amazingly charismatic performers. So much fun to watch.

goodness knows I hate to be picky, but the line about "two hands" was Simon. Andy pipes up with the slightly meaner "Roger's still a virgin!"

It says a lot about me (and the number of times I've watched SBS) that not only did I think this immediately when I read your awesome blog, but that I simply had to check the clip to prove to myself I was right!

This is not a good thing.

But this piece was - loved it!!

SarahJay, you're probably right about the "two hands" line being Simon. If I remember right, I think the whole exchange happens off-camera (while the camera focuses on poor Roger looking like he wants to crawl off into a hole somewhere), so somehow I attributed it to Andy.
