Squire, John : Liverpool University
Apparently you could hear the singalong in Manchester...
"So, d'ya wanna hear some more Roses tunes?" he drawls after 'Joe Louis' and 'Shine A Light' have received summary dismissals. Which, let's face it, is a bit like a tour guide in Memphis asking a coachload of Elvis fanatics whether they'd be interested in seeing Gracelands. 'She Bangs The Drums' and 'Waterfall' then arrive swathed in his note perfect warble. An epic final 'Time Changes Everything' then achieves the previously unheard of medical remedy of catharsis via guitar solo. He encores with 'Tightrope'.
