So I suppose now that there has been this ‘meet’ between Nile and Andy, assumptions are now going to be made that Nile is ‘the man’ and he is going to somehow engineer a miraculous rendezvous with Andy and his ex band mates. Well, that I’m sure that will turn out to be a pleasant, informal, ‘fun’ get together..not.
I can just imagine it - one last crack of the whip scenario. It’s time to shake that money maker - the priority is to earn lots of money from a massive DD40 world tour, no matter how bad the chemistry looks on stage. Contracts written and all business like. No flow, no eye contact - just contemptuous glares while the others aren’t looking. What a happy tone this is setting out to be.
The truth is I cannot rule out a reunion with Andy. He is, after all, the one to make the band the original 5 again - and the only chance of earning extra money for the other four band members. Every artist I’ve been going to see live for the 40th anniversaries have been near on sell outs. If there is ever going to be a right moment to get back together - its now. Its like momentous occasions like the Queen’s Golden Jubilee - the big anniversary. Sell, sell, sell!
And that’s what makes me feel sad. It’s not for the right reasons. Andy has no love for DD (the band) whatsoever - that we do know so can we stop kidding ourselves otherwise? He didn’t want to be there for Astronaut and I can tell you - he will not want to be there for DD40. I have no desire to go watch a disjointed band on the tour, with Andy taking part at least. I prefer to remember them as they were - during the Andy years and the Warren years. Not now.
The connection hasn't been right in a long time - The PR is terrible. Most artists I follow now personally contribute to their own FB pages - tidbits here and there, stories of on the road, recollections of the past, insights into private life or personal opinions. They come across as human and open.
I honestly hope there is no DD40 with Andy Taylor. I’m not really into the band as they are now - but its certainly better than watching a strained relationship deteriorate further into the abyss, leading to yet another split in the camp.
These are my own personal opinions.
