The only thing this thread is lacking is a Thethirdreunion poll.

I'll start the petition! We might get more signatures than his Forth reissue when only jadams and BW signed off.

Good answer. Playing "Come On" without the band would be embarrassing.

About the Verve, there were too many things that made them a truly great, unique band: not only they release some stunning albums, with music so incredible that makes it hard to understand how they accomplished it being so young. The musicianship was great; tight rhythm section, amazing frontman and, the not so secret weapon, Nick McCabe with his genius guitar playing. But there was something else: call it magic or anything you want; it's that special thing that set some bands apart of the rest. That would translate to their live performances: at their highest they were basically untouchable.

Bands such as Doves (and I do think that most of their output is very good) are not even close.

That's, obviously, the opinion of a huge fan of the Verve. I love that band so much and I wish more people could have known them as much as we did.

Btw, it's great to come back here and see all the familiar faces again, along with some new ones! I know I'm always late to the party, but it's always like that. :D

Be Well!
