Sigh. Okay, I looked at their review. What I find sad is that it was posted in a dishonest manner - making it seem as though Alvin invited them backstage etc...and most of all, posting Alvin's message to all of you as if it was intended for them. Sadly, that one bit will probably mean that we will share less of Alvin's comments in the future. Clearly, they know that the email I shared on this board was not intended for them.
But really guys, don't sweat it. They actually said nice things about Alvin & the show. If exaggerating a little makes them feel better, who really cares? Sad that they need to do it, but that's on them - not us.
That's really sad that Alvin may share less comments in the future. How frustrating. It's such an incredible treat when he does share.
I think you misunderstood my point. Almost everybody retires eventually and usually people announce their own retirement. It's natural that most people will at some point decide to call it a day. True, we would miss Alvin, but life would go on, and as long as he is happy, I'll be happy for him when and if that day comes.
However, some people need to jump the gun and make these types of statements, best left to the individuals concerned, to make themselves seem important.
I'm from Brett Favre country. I've heard more BS about retirement than I care to remember! If Alvin retires from performing I'm sure we'll here it from him and not some second hand "i heard it from a source that Alvin's done" report. It really doesn't make sense that he would retire from performing if he's got an album coming out in August.(which I'm looking forward to purchasing) If he does, that's up to him. He's paid his dues. I don't think he's playing the States again and unless a money bomb explodes in my front yard I wont be seeing him across the pond. So the best thing I could hope for is a DVD....(hint, hint)

Toni, I find that shocking. How do they have the nerve? How could they have so little self respect? I have heard of their dirty tricks before but now I see it with my own eyes. Appalling.
