    Those audition shows don't give the artists more time. Yes this is Boy George, and the makeup is similar 'cause she was in his team (it was already the third round or so).

    Watch this one if you want it somewhat longer:

    Giacomo was one of the lead vocalists of Banco del Mutuo Soccorso (alongside John de Leo) in 2015,
    before Vittorio collapsed. The second part of the song it's Franco Battiato of course.

    Most of it is his top-drawer talent, but part of it is the language - Italian is really easy to sing with simultaneously a huge tone and complete intelligibility.

    Well, it’s not exactly “prog,” but I did hear Journey’s “On a Saturday Nite” at the thrift store today. When’s the last time you heard any pre-Steve Perry Journey in a public place?

    We were at a local Eagles bar dancing to a band we're on friendly terms with. They play standard pub fare, lite rock from the 60s on up. Usually, during their breaks they play a compilation of whatever. Sometimes parts of albums. Last night the drummer was hanging around his kit and I about fell out when I heard Chris Squier coming from the speakers. I walked over and shouted "Fish Out Of Water? Are you freaking kidding me!" He was just as shocked that someone knew it. We talked right through the break and sometime after they finished, talking Yes and prog. He said he never ever runs into anyone who knows anything or likes prog.

    Another bizarre thrift-store hearing: “Love to Love You” by Caravan. I have never heard this song before when it wasn’t me playing it. You could have knocked me over with a feather!

    Truth: I'm in a sports bar watching college football, ......in Florida, and I'm hearing Long Distance/Fish Shindaleria at this very moment.

    I was watching a movie called PRIVATE LIFE on NETFLIX. About a couple looking to have a child by IF. The woman is on the bed being examined, her legs are spread apart and the doctor said to her "Do you like Prog Rock?" I kid you not...
