Did Ringo say anything about George, e.g. during intro's?

He had a big hit with "No one is to blame" written by (Phil Collins) about 10 or 15 years ago and that's about it...

Nice to hear from you again Roger. How are the screws in your eye glasses these days ?.

Oh sorry ABCKO was looking for you on the 4 page tour thread. Guess you servived. Ringo did not do much on drums in Minneapolis. Played but nothing real great. What he did do he made it look so effortlessly. Would have been nice to see him show off. He did one short solo but not impressive. Sheal E it is - was fantastic!! Roger Hudson was with Supertramp huh? Ian Hunter Mott the Hoopal? Who is Howard Jones? I thought he was very good at keyboards. Did Emerson Lake and Palmer with Lake very well. Same introws to the songs. I could see 2 busses parked by the stage (was ooutside). He and Shela E flerted a lot.

I must give Howard Jones some more credit cause I remember more hits.

Howard Jones released his first single, "New Song," in England in the fall of 1983 and it became a big hit, peaking at number three. His second single, "What Is Love," was released a few months later and it reached number two. Humans Lib, Jones' debut album, was released in the spring of 1984 and quickly rose to number one in England. Thanks to repeated exposure on MTV, the album became a moderate hit in the U.S. Later in 1984, "New Song" and "What Is Love" became American Top 40 hits, while "Pearl in the Shell" became his third British Top Ten single.

In 1985, Jones phased Hoile out of his live show, formed a touring band, and released his second album, Dream into Action. The record became his most successful album, reaching number ten and going platinum in the U.S. and spawning the hit singles "Things Can Only Get Better," "Like to Get to Know You Well," "Life in One Day," and "Look Mama." In the spring of 1986, he released Action Replay, an EP of remixes that featured a new version of "No One Is to Blame" from Dream into Action. "No One Is to Blame" became Jones' biggest U.S. hit, peaking at number four. The relatively weaker chart placement of number 16 in the U.K. was indicative of his future in England — his next single, "You Know I Love You...Don't You?," taken from his third album One to One, became his last British Top 40 hit.

Jones released his fourth album, Cross That Line, in the spring of 1989. The first single from the album, "Everlasting Love," became a number one adult contemporary hit in America, reaching number 13 pop. However, the album stalled at number 65. Jones returned three years later with In the Running, a set that saw him abandoning synthesizers for piano. The album didn't make the charts. Following the release of The Best of Howard Jones in 1993, Elektra dropped him. Instead of seeking a new record contract with another major label, Jones hit the road in 1994, performing acoustic shows. At the 1994 shows, he sold Working in the Backroom — an album he recorded at his home studio and released on his own label, Dtox Records — at his concerts. For the next two years, Jones continually toured America and Europe. In 1996, he released Live Acoustic America on PLM Records; People followed two years later

Thanks for the info. So, he's not a 1 hit wonder after all.

Still, "No one is to blame" is the only song I remember hearing from him...

But as far as he being an All-Starr, my problem is'nt with him, his keyboard playing was very good especially on the Greg Lake numbers. It's just that keyboards were not meant to be used On "Yellow submarine", "The no-no song" and so forth...

My screws are still in place ABCKO. My grandson sat on my glasses and so I'm bent a little. I'm not spending as much time on the net as I was. A work thing. Yes Shena (or whatever the name) was easy on the eyes. The sax ect. etc. player must have been there to fill in instruments that were needed. He didn't have any songs nore seemed to be considerd an all star.

The sax player is a sideman from Billy Joel's band, and seems to have been on a few tours with Ringo and at least on this last tour served as the musical director.
