Al Green
« on: January 20, 2011, 08:33:36 am »
Was scouring videos On Demand and stumbled upon Al Green performing on Soul Train, the keyboardist on the right of the stage is using a Coliseum of some kind.

Great video, great singer, great performer. I wonder if he was having monitor problems though; he keeps going a bit flat, particularly on long low register notes.
Perhaps "busted wing" pain killer induced control issues?
Regardless, one of the all time great R&B/Soul vocalists. Nice catch!

Yea - thanks for sharing.  Al's even performing with an injured right arm or something.   8-)

Yes, most definitely a great artist overall.

During the Q&A moment of the show some guy asked him what happened to his arm?
He said it was fractured and he was actually getting it off later that day.
