As I think about it I realize that he's essentially been in the state fair phase of his career for at least a decade, playing for crowds impatiently waiting for the 'What's my name' closer so they can get another eight dollar cup of light beer. 'Doggystyle' is geezer rock. I still have my original copy. Damn damn damn.
Anyway, I am very leery of this idea. The live shows are going to be awkward when us old folks realize that he isn't going to play what we paid to hear him play.
