Didn't mean to invoke the curse of a Spinal Tap Moment! But me on the floor in a full backbend unable to escape from that trap without the embarrassment of rolling over! ARRRRRrrrrrrrGGGGGGHHH!
I can still do a hand spring! No problemos there! Haven't tried the back bend because, I'm pretty sure I couldn't walk out of it! LOL Guess I should have done a test run before posting!
HAAAA!!! "Roll sideways to get out of a backbend." Sounds like ME for weeks after that Priest show. Seriously. Those broken ribs had me rolling off the bed to the ground and using the wall to get to my feet each morning! I was to the point of getting one of those old folks lazyboys with the lift for a while there...
What you describe on stage has some serious Spinal Tap imagery.
VOM, just a little correction. Rob turned 57 this year, as does all the members of JP except Glen who happens to be turning the big 60 this year, and Scott who is the "baby" around my age.
Ever notice KK quit doing those monster backbends a way back? At my age he could still do them and I bet that if I went into a backbend I would need to roll sideways to get out of it! People age, and we all wish to be young, but it's a shame that father time wont let us stay as young as we want. LOL
As long as I have my sence of humor and an intrest in getting out and doing things, I'll stay young enough!
I admire JP for their energy on stage! Glenn doesn't seemed to have missed a trick over the years, but he never did those awesome backbends!
Here's to the band! The Greatest Band! Still kickin it at late 50's! They will always be the ones I love!

Hey Mysterio, may i ask you a personal question? How old are you? Take it easy i'm not attacking you. Rob is like 59 years old,okay. I'm like 15 years younger. At my age, i wanna jump around more,lol, it's not gonna happen every other night., for either of us. And i exercise 5 days a week. So i'm just guessing your younger then both of us? Believe me, i long for those days to. It's tough getting used to his new persona, but it fits him. Bruce of Iron Maiden is a different horse all together. Kinda like a sports player that should be past his prime, yet he still has it. But that's why i love Priest and Maiden. Both are great, yet so different.
I have been watching olds shows of JP on stage. Does anyone want Rob to be jumping around like he used to. I have the Electri eye dvd, and he's all over the place like Spiderman. Bruce Dickenson from IM jumps all over the place.
In terms of stage movement. As long as I see the JP dance that they do. Thats all I care about. Does it matter to you all to see more JP stage movement.
