That was something real special from Frank there. Love Cowboy Chords and the amazing, as always, stage presence.

I must have listened to Photosynthesis live about a million times, yet, every single time I get goosebumps for that last bit. Absolutely magic.

You can proxy to it if you like.

On firefox go "tools>Options>Advanced>Network>Settings>Manual Proxy Configuration"

And this proxy is working for me. HTTP Proxy 77.103.25.219 and port 6515. Then click the "Use this proxy server" and OK.

And FINALLY A decent version of Cowboy Chords! It's a really beautiful song.
I'd rather be the one who loves than to be loved and never even know.

I would caution you that if you are planning on doing this to only use it to watch this video and then immediately remove the proxy server afterward. That IP address routes back to someone's Virgin Media home cable connection in Manchester, and I would think it unwise to browse any personally sensitive data through it, as it would be easy enough for them to capture it and use it for their own means if they wished to.

Am I the only one who is finding it hard to pick a new favourite song? Between Polaroid Picture, Good and Gone and Cowboy Chords, Frank is at his absolute best with writing right now, and I haven't even heard Four Simple (little?) Words yet, which I only heard about when someone mentioned it here and I couldn't find online yet. Y u make choozin so hard Frank.

You've all seen footage of the screaming hysterical Beatles fans in the 60's right ? Up until very recently I wondered how the hell someone could get that emotional about something as simple as rock n roll. And those evangelist congregations in the US. As an antitheist I can't understand their emotional reaction to the words of the preacher. Until about 5 minutes ago.

During Cowboy Chords there is a guy that appears to be wiping away tears. I thought, yeah man, its an amazing song, sympathise with you.... but pull yourself together. And then a few minutes later I found myself openly weeping tears of joy at Photosynthesis. I'm a forty something happily married father of 3 so not homosexual in any way. Wtf? Maybe I should get out more...

Those audience members were surely the luckiest people on earth for that hour and a half. Even the guy who appears to get his phone out during Peggy (out of shot reaching for something and then face lights up as screen comes on ?).
Never let the things that go without saying remain unsaid

I have my first real gig on Saturday, all be it only as a support act, but it's in one of the roughest pubs in my area so I'm shitting it that little bit more.
Think I'll use this as a little guide, see what I'd be comfortable doing when I get up there, which chatting insane amounts like Frank does is likely not to be one of them haha.
