Why not? The guitarist and bassist have been very busy making babies recently. Creativity is rampant with their latest generative interpretations of “Child in Time”.
On another interesting side note or another discussion topic, has it struck anyone U2’s massive hit “Mysterious Ways” is heavily derived from tracks in DP’s “House of Blue Light”? I am no U2 fan but heard the song twice one day on radio and realized the drumming is based on “The Unwritten Law” plus the riffing especially also from “Mad Dog” and “Strangeways”. Very “Strangeways” or “Mysterious Ways”!
Round here the accepted wisdom is that U2 ‘borrowed’ a lot from local outfit The Comsat Angels, who they toured the UK with early on… but not pondered the Purple connection before. Does this mean I have to have a listen next time it’s on?
I can envision the Purple Daddies listening indulgently to their little tyke’s wails and screams and nostalgically recalling past DP concerts where it reminds them of a particular scream or wail let lose by Ian, David, or Glenn.
