You better move on
tu sapessi la storia di Paderno... é un concerto che non é
mai stato fatto. Quel giorno pioveva a dirotto e annullarono lo
show, erano però presenti circa 50 persone (tra cui il mio
amico con il dat) e Willy propose di fare due/tre pezzi acustici.
In pratica Willy suonò unplugged (nel vero senso, gli
strumenti e la voce non sono amplificati) nel bel mezzo della
strada con 50 persone intorno. Infatti se ascolti all'inizio
senti una ragazza dire "gli vedo il numero di scarpe",
inoltre durante alcuni brani sentirai la voce abbassarsi, é
dovuto a Willy che si gira per cantare a quelli che gli stanno
dietro alla schiena e non essendo amplificato da un microfono il
suono della sua voce é più basso. Si tratta di un
reperto unico, rarissimo (il mio amico non scambia, tu sei il
primo ad averlo) e particolare: ecco perchè non dura 22/23
canzoni, non é uno show normale.
Bruno, I thought you knew the story of Paderno... it's a concert
that never happened. That day it was raining too much and the
show was cancelled, but there were about 50 persons (among them
was a friend of mine with his DAT) and Willy started to play 2/3
acoustic songs. Willy went on playing really unplugged (no PA at
all) in the middle of the street with that little crowd around
him. In the beginning of the record a girl says "i can see
the size-number of his shoes", besides that at some point
the voice of Willy get lower because he turns back to sing for
the people sitting back to him. This show is a rarity (the friend
of mine does not trade, you are the only one to get it) and it's
very peculiar: that's why the show didn't last 22/23 songs,
because it's not a normal show.)
same story from the words of David.J. Keyes (Mink DeVille bass player)
(excerpt from David's site:Blues
Here's a story from a concert near Milan...a couple years ago.
We arrived at a festival site only to fìnd clouds thundering and
rain pounding the stage, Everything on stage was soaking wet so
as the early afternoon hours ticked by, we realized that the show
had to be cancelled. Hey, nobody wants to get electrocuted!
But we really didn't want to cancel.
The technicians began clearing the stage and we waited backstage
for the signal to get on the tourbus and head for the hotel. Even
with the hard rain there were hundreds of fans, still hoping
that the rain would stop and the "...show would go on".
Then as it got later and colder, the rain agreed to stop. So
I had an idea, I ran up to Willy's dressing room and he
was hanging out playing the guitar. I said, "Willy,
maybe we should do this show anyway." He said, "...what?!"
I said, "Let's get all the equipment off stage, no lights,
no amps, no microphones. We can remove the security barrier so the
audience can move right up to the front of the stage. We'll put
the girls, (Lisa and Sweetie Wise) right behind your ears and line
the rest of the band across the front of the stage."
Willy rolled his eyes back and thought for about two seconds.
Then he said, "Let's do it" Well, the girls were already
out of their stage clothes and sleeping on the bus. But even they
thought it could be cool to do a show this way. (Whew!)
In about 15 minutes we had the opening act onstage and we listened
to their set - totally unplugged and nearly in the dark! It sounded
cool and the audience loved it. Our show was also spirited with
great singing and dynamics that is sometimes hard to get when everyone
is plugged in on a big stage.
Great moments between Willy and the audience made this one concert
I will remember for the rest of my life.
