too much touring..no, sorry, ed, not at all.
it is obviously helping him keep a bright, well-centered and creative perspective with a sharp and a clear outlook on his art.
sure, it'd be nice to see some new stuff...but i'd much rather wait and get some really good stuff than take the chance on rushing it and getting anyhting less than the stellar work he's been doing for most of the last 30 years
as far as i'm concerned, almost every album has been pretty great to excellent for nearly that long, i believe he's found the groove that fits him and his muse the best...so let him have it his way
only a blue meanie would not notice the greatness of, at the very least, the last 3 albums
i would agree that he should hit other areas pf our great big blue with more frequency: north america is not the only place around, and it seems like he's here quite alot.
but, heck, he's been all over the place quite a nit, actually, give him time.
at the end of the end it's the start of a journey to a much better place and this wasn't bad so a much better place would have to be special...no need to be sad...
