I've seen plenty of rock gigs in my life where four people were strumming, plucking, and banging away and it was about as interesting as watching paint dry. A successful live performance occurs when the music is good and you're diggin' it. Doesn't matter to me whether someone's sitting behind a bank of electronics or a drumkit, if what they're doing sounds good and there is an emotional connection to it, it's going to be enjoyable. It's strange to me John Diliberto is knocking Robert's live gigs or live EM gigs in general, after all these years of supposedly being a supporter of the genre. But then again, he is not a musician himself, and so when he states an opinion like this, I say "consider the source."
