“The Beatles Of Our Generation Have Called It A Day”
It is not everyday that a band of this caliber breaks up, but sadly time is winding down on one of the most definitive musical acts of our time. Upon completion of their current tour of Australia, three-fourths of The Wiggles will call it a day. Anthony Field will continue on with three new members, but come on, one does not simply replace Murray Cook’s creative guitar work, Jeff Fatt’s narcoleptic tendencies, and Greg Page’s…uhhh… Greg-ness?? This will truly be a day of infamy in the annals of music history. Murray Cook probably has no interest in rebuilding his former band Katastrophus, as that would be simply awkward. Jeff and Greg will probably not carry on as music critics and journalists for Universe Number Five, but that door is always open. I say the old songs should be stricken from the band’s future live sets. “Fruit Salad” and “Hot Potato” will never have integrity if not played by the original band. To imagine “Here Comes The Bear” without the real Fab Four… it’s just heart-wrenching. It would be a stab to the band’s old school fans. As long as Anthony doesn’t completely sell-out though and make an album of radio-friendly material, I’m sure there will still be a measure of decency to it…
Who needs crap like Metallica when you can have THIS instead?
