Such a canned answer. Mark is good at those.

They are so far removed from Tom that it's really best to just have a mature, politically correct answer at this point. Deflect and move on. The absolute last thing they want is ANYTHING in the quote that would give these bloggers the slightest amount of click bait material to run wild with. In the past, stuff as dumb as Tom tweeting at Travis about water slides turns in to "BLINK IS BAK" "OMG BOXCAR RACER IS BAK!". He's not worth the time, or headache.

There is no doubt in my mind that Mark cannot stand the man,  don't care what he says publicly.

Yep, no question Mark can't stand him.

 

I agree; its a smart move. It was the perfect response,...........................we respect Tom, we haven't spoken to him. Don't say, he is welcome to join us onstage (that's starts rumors) don't say he is not welcome (also starts shit).

Mark might have even practiced that reply beforehand.

Can... can Mark even sing it now? it's a bit on the high end for him isn't it?

It'll be awkward if its next to BTD on the set list...

This is actually pretty big news and kind of cool.

Not really. HAG is much higher. Some of the stuff mark can't sing is perplexing because he can nail songs that are in a higher range. The intro to Sober is a good example.

Lets hope Matt, can play the intro/pre chorus - it's picking over three different strings so he might struggle a bit.

I actually listened to Adam's Song yesterday for the first time in awhile, had chills at the end. I think it's time to bring it back, anxious to hear it live again.

The first Vegas show is sold out, I actually think these may end up being pretty fun. Very curious to see how many songs/how long they play since I don't think there is an opener.

I am also excited to see what acoustic song(s) they play. An acoustic medley would be sick!

Its so weird because last night I put on Enema for the first time in awhile....when Adam's Song came on, I found myself air drumming it, and I said "Let me sit at the kit and see if I can still play this one". So I sat down, it had been at least 5-10 years, and I nailed it, and it definitely reminded me of how great of a song it was. The drums are amazing. They are actually ground breaking and people don't even realize it. Travis throwing in all the random cymbal hits (that are surprisingly not random there is a pattern) and using the spare floor tom to his left for the pre chorus.

I was just into it.

So this is certainly an ironic thing to hear this morning.

Have you ever done anything that wasn't perfect?

@Olidamus I can't remember, do you play in a band? I'd like to check out your music if you have anything online or anything

Thanks man! I don't. I use to. I wish I could get in another one I just am so focused on my reenacting that I wouldn't have the time.

 

But I appreciate your support. One day I will get back to music.

I could but You won't watch it anyway.

 

:-)

 

Edit: I was ridiculously obsessed with Travis' drumming at one point. The little fill in All the Small things, I can remember taping it slowing it down to about 10% of its original speed and listening to it for about 8 hours until I knew what it was. As a result a lot of my drumming is spot on. I was a perfectionist with it when I did it. Making up fills that were close was never good enough.

What if you combined reenacting and playing music? Ideal.

I didn't watch the guitar one because I didn't remotely care, but this I'd like to see.

Not sure what the set list looked like, but I think they brought back Adams Song at least
