Default Gossamer

How do we feel about Gossamer in 2020?

When I was young and dumb, I thought Gossamer was a colossal waste of time, but now, I kind of appreciate it? It was maybe the last gasp of SP1 psychedelic self indulgence like the MCIS Silverfuck or Transmission.

Also the Grand Rex version with The Stooges 1969 tease is cool

Also this is one of the most humiliating moments of SP2. 5 years prior they were playing it at Rock Am Ring. Then, playing it on the concourse of an arena with a truck in the background.

I think it's great. It's a shame there wasn't a studio version. Not necessarily a 30 minute studio version, a good 10 - 12 minutes would've done me.

I love this song.

I still would really like a studio version, even if it's the one recorded back in 2008.

Loved that Rock Am Ring version and from that tour. But I think the 30 minute ones went on far too long right.

Call me old fashioned, but I think any song that goes over 5 minutes is far too long!

the 15-20 minutes versions they played in May/June 2007 were great, as were the versions on the 20th Anniversary Tours. The 30-40 minutes versions from the residencies just ran out of steam.

Agreed. Especially because the Fillmore versions felt like they were just fucking around on purpose to be antagonistic.

yeah, kinda funny how casually people are voicing their love for it in here yet I still have to watch my back anytime I give a positive nod to Zeitgeist. Sad!

Took speaking on something he likely knows nothing about? Next you'll tell me there's been a delay on Shiny Heino!

i've always loved me some GOSSAMER. I even liked billy's solo acoustic gossamer from 2017 solo tour. TORONTO 2008 GOSSAMER is wayyyy better than TORONTO 2012 GOSSAMER that's for sure. FUCK mike.

Mike couldn’t play the intro to Iron Man even if he had a drum trigger
