It's a sign of the times. All these guys are used to having a lot of money. Now they get sod-all from investments, so to maintain their sort of lifestyle, they have to keep working, but they can be selective.

The rolling stones are still good .
and probably some of the few who really don't need the cash now, but still love to play.
the last time I saw them was at the Indianapolis speedway, outdoors on a great summer night, the sound was awesome.

That's great, I've seen Cilla black at Coventry sometime before 1979 and the Dooleys at a Worcester club in 1979, both were amazing.

Don't think most of them need money. Phil Collins is worth 260mil range. Billy, Dusty and Frank are over 50mil each. Even the poor guys in BOC are multi millionaires. Need for the stage perhaps. Love of the game. Or just can't sit still.

Missed Rush on there last and final tour, would like to catch ZZ Top one more time.

Max Steiner was a prolific writer of scores for dozens of classic films, including many of Humphrey Bogart's.

Back in the day, apart from rousing themes in big movies there was also "incidental music," because it was used sparingly and either ceased or became muted when some essential dialogue needed to be hear by the audience, so they knew what was going on.

He was a master of creating the right ambiance. Here's the "love theme" from one of my favourite film noir classics.
This theme was heard whenever Bogart and Bacall were having a scene together once the "attraction" had been introduced.


These days we don't get "incidental music" in films and TV dramas, we hadly even get "background music." What we get a lot of is, "foreground music" that can completely mask the dialogue. It's often used to try to get some "drama," into a bit of lacklustre scripting and acting.

Here's a song I heard today, whilst changing channels.

This is Julia Stiles dancing to it in a café in a cheap film from 2004.


The full song is here, by Marc Cohn, I quite liked it.


She starred as Nicky Parsons, in the same year in the Bourne Supremacy, at the age of 23.

She reprised this role in the Bourne Ultimatum in 2007. It shocked me a bit that she seemed to have aged quite a bit in the intervening years.
