Twenty one minutes of Bon Jovi is way too freakin’ much, and I’ve no idea why they’re giving it to him (Will Smith, I can understand, but don’t agree with). Hopefully, they’ll sell DVDs of the event, and if not, clips of it will probably show up on the web within a short time.
I was skeptical of AOLs coverage (XM appears to be running their normal programming if you try to stream over the Internet), but, at least on DSL, it appears to be fairly high-quality and free, though you’ll probably need IE and WMP9 (or whatever they’re up to now.)
I think that if you go with the low-quality, dial-up connection, you’ll probably get little-to-no video and decent streaming audio. And, let’s face it, the audio’s the important part anyway. As long as it doesn’t have to rebuffer every 15 seconds.
While Bon Jovi and Will Smith are not much better, you do know that Pink Floyd are a dead band? Its most renowned hit was a “school sucks” whine worthy of a thirteen year old, and Rogers and co have had little to do with popular music in twenty years or more. Indeed, Will Smith and Bon Jovi both have the benefit of being slightly more contemporary.
Pink Floyd is lucky to get the allotted four minutes. That’s all the time it will take for them to play the relevent music they’ve recorded in the past twenty years.
Wow, for a guest you sure do jump right in, don’t you? Us "old fogies’ still like Pink Floyd, thankyouverymuch. That they reunited for this concert gives us hope. You are more than welcome to listen to my share of Bon Jovi nad Will Smith.
