Nice tune, to me it has a Gerry Rafferty feel to it and it has a couple of classic minor-major transitions, a nice uplift in the chorus; a solid deep track, better than quite a few other deep tracks the band has delivered since, IMHO of course.
I had the chance to chat with George a couple times over the years. My favorite interaction was Labor Day weekend 1995 in Southern California. The boys were on fire for three consecutive shows, it was amazing. The second night at the Ventura Theatre they played Astronomy. BD steps off the stage and on to the table I’m sitting at with some other hardcore fans. He then plays the most amazing solo -the space time continuum was torn and I was transported into a Ditko-esque alternate reality. You guys know how it goes.
Anyways, I walked up to George at the soundboard after the show and simply smiled at him. He said “you know, after all of these years, that guy still gives me the chills.” ‘Nuff Said,
That 95 Ventura show was always one of my favorite BOC boots that I have heard. There was some magic going on that night!
