Some amusing reflections on LC after his recent shows in Amsterdam - plus a nice little tribute to this forum :-)

Nice write-up, jp - thank you for the link. IMO, the Voice just gets better & better all the time (even though it was always incomparably profound & sublime, from day one).

Thanks holydove - yeah, I don't think there are many singers you could say that about. Voices usually build over time and technique improves but inevitably there is then decline. His voice is still just amazing!

ohhh, I'm getting excited!!! ... I still have almost 3 months for my concert but watching those live clips (which I've avoided until now) has me anticipating what we might see on this side of the pond.

Thank you for the link James - a most enjoyable blog write up.
