The Verve Are Totally in the Tank for TFC
2 weeks ago I was all hot & bothered about going to see the newly reunited The Verve at MSG. In a nutshell, their guitarist Nick McCabe reaffirmed my belief that he is the best guitarist of his generation to come out of the U.K. Better than Bernard Butler for sure. Better than Graham Coxon. Better than Kevin Shields. And dare I say it better than John Squire.
And now that he (along with bassist Simon Jones) has been spotted sporting an MLS kit on stage --the band played across the street from BMO Field at Toronto's Ricoh Arena the night TFC played NY-- I think I love him even more. Even more fitting was that he put it on for the encore of "Bittersweet Symphony". I'm so damned easy to please.
