thx for the support. Tom announced today he will have forthcoming live unreleased Brad Delp material to follow, but i can't help but wonder what he will do to butcher it. I know there's some good youtube stuff out there of the 2004 tour with Brad and Fran sharing vocals. I think Heaven on Earth is probably the best Tom can offer, it's not the worst, but simply doesn't even hold up to even the material on Walk On. Guess we just have to take what we get. It's a era that's truly nearing a end. I will look forward to seeing them live. I think Tommy and David do a kick ass job, just hate Tom could not capture it. He has the tools, just not the songs anymore or direction.
