Shouldn't that be Man's laughter

Spooky - I actually originally put it down as Man's Laughter.

Which gives us "Great  Man think alike"

How about Man-o-Pause

I refuse to join in this thread in such serious times.....

Well that didn't last long....

MAN-ERG,

Courtesy of Van Der Graaf Generator, a track from Pawn Hearts, possibly their best track ever. A tale of one mans battle with his good side and the demon's within him.
Trying to relate this back to the Man break up, who are the good guys, who are the bad guys.
For me there's only going to be one winner..... mediocrity.

If any of them are going to update the sound, then what about M-MAN-M - rap Ride and the View, anyone? And if any of them start touring, there's always MANdate. I'll get my coat (again) ...

Crikey ! Haven't been able to get on to the Board for a while, so a whopping great shock. Maybe this is good old-fashioned naivety and optimism but if the 5 guys could chat and find a way of working things through, that would be my preferred outcome, irrespective of whether they play together as a band or form umpteen new branches on the Man and off-shoots family tree. ( Have not seen the band with Phil back in harness and was hoping to get in a trip to the Christmas gig. That'll teach me not to miss gigs.)

Even if the guys decide that they can't or won't work together for the future I would hope that they can get to a position where they can still be mates, notwithstanding an agreement to disagree. They have produced way too much great music together and shown so much commitment for a falling out - no matter how heartfelt and difficult - to put a mocker on friendships that must go way back.

Seeing Martin, Josh, George and Bob play in April/May 2007 was a pleasure - and they were fairly cooking on stage, as Dave and Sally and Jules will I am sure agree - just like every Man gig I have ever attended has been a pleasure.

I'll take any combination they choose as the talent that they all share means that it will be great music. But, more important than that, I want the guys to be happy and able to share the pride and pleasure that should come from being part of one of the finest bands/musical collectives/dynasties - never sure that "band" really does the Man experience justice ! Dust settles, and phones, email and public houses will still be there as modes of and locations for communication ....

Yep, yep and yep.

I've mentioned before that for me all parties seemed to be at their peak when Iceberg existed as well as Man in the early 70s, similarly with Alkatraz a few years later.

I'd like to know more about the others in Martin's new line up - can anyone fill me in?

Also....just musing....and thinking of Will's songwriting skills...I wonder what a combination of George/Phil/Will/Bob/Tweke would be like?

I'd buy it!

Now that would be a line up worth seeing....if Phil Ryan was unavailable I'm sure Clint could do a more than adequate job.
