In 09 he got 60, it kind of makes me upside down.

By the way ... why does he sound younger and rougher nowadays, and so well refined in his young days??'

Nowadays he's pouring plated gold over diamonds, and that's too much for my likings. It doesn't stick, I'd guess, and it's too much of preciousness. I mean, why do your intrumentals have to flood your tunes, Tom? You have to overpower them, and that honestly doesn't sound like an improvement to me.

Y'know what the folks around me here in Sweden say: tårta på tårta: a cake on top of a cake.

In the upside down way of time thinking: I would love going to his concert in Chicago ten years back. In 90 to be correct.

I'd scream 'We love you, Tom!' and he'd scream back 'I love you too, babe!'
