Radiohead will play outdoor Wednesday and it will probably rain. I don't want to miss that show.

Have you ever seen a show outdoor while it was raining ?

Umbrellas must be very embarrassing ?

Rain during an outdoor show can even be pleasant when it is suiting the music. Like melancholic music or so. I would love to hear Echo & The Bunnymen sing "Ocean Rain" outdoors at night while the rain pours down.

Or maybe Tokio Hotel singing "Durch den Monsun" while it storms :oops:

An older friend of mine was actually at the Tibetan Freedom Concert when a woman got struck by lightning during Herbie Hancock's set (I think they had it on VH1's 100 Most Shocking Moments In Music) and Radiohead had to cancel their set until the next day because of the rain (this was 1998)

This whole conversation about rain and Radiohead reminds me of the song "Sit Down. Stand Up." where Thom repeats the words "the rain drops" like 50 or so times.

Thom Yorke is an AS too.
Some inspiration for budding AS musicians out there.

I'm not sure if Thom Yorke is AS. Is it confirmed?

I think he's just eccentric.

It's like a jigsaw fallen into place and a bit weird, 'cos for a while now I have had that exact thought, i.e. that Thom Yorke could perfectly be an Asperger. I think he is one of the greatest musicians alive today. A melodic genius.
But is it a quess, as mine, or is it really true? I really like to know that.
Another quess then; Jimi Hendrix probably was one too.

I saw them a couple of months ago; it was amazing. Who cares if it rains, just wear a jacket with a hood you can put up or something. They truly are amazing live... you think they're good on record, just wait till they're in front of you!! I've been to lots of outdoor gigs where it's rained, it's no biggie, just get wet and then when it's done have a hot cup of tea or coffee or hot chocolate or something from a stall and go home, have a hot shower, get into some dry clothes - no harm done!
