    To see Van was to appreciate on a higher level his musical genius. When you see him change from the piano to the guitar to the sexaphone then play the harmonica is so impressive. When he used to live in Marin County California I always hoped I would run into him. I told my husband the ultimate on my bucket list will be too see Van play live in Dublin or Belfast.

    YOU WERE VERY LUCKY TO SEE VAN LIVE.
    I’M A 69 YO AUSTRALIAN & I HAVE LOVED VAN MORRISON’S MUSIC FOR ABOUT THE LAST 40 YEARS.
    EVERYTHING HE DOES IS JUST AMAZING & TO REALISE THAT HE WROTE MOST OF THE SONGS HE SINGS.
    THE QUALITY OF HIS BACKING GROUPS IS UNSURPASSED.
    WELL DONE

    Bennyjazzful…. Van the Man,
    If you have problem, Van has a song with Answer To It. He has helped me
    through many a problem, Move into new houses with only his music, in fact one workman asked, Do you live here Alone ? I Nearly said NO. with van morrison 🙂
    seen him twice, reason for posting 1st. time all seated event Yes it was an experience, with his Band. 2nd Time Standing Event, he walked of after 2 No. but Dylan was on Next “bottom line,only buy CDnow as his shows are exact same.

    you are so right! when it comes to conveying the Soul of a singer, Van is in the same class as the immortal Otis Redding & Sam Cooke. I cannot think of another white man with this ability. There are many excellent white male singers,,,but this boy has a real deep SOUL APPEAL. No imitation like the God-Awful Michael Bolton! YUCK!!!

  • bennyjazzful:

    I envy you.That must have been amazing.Somewhere i saw that he had written over 300 songs & what i am in awe,is that every song is so different.
    He is the only white soul/R & B artist who sounds like the American negro soul singers.
    Also the backing musicians he gets are so,so good.
    I’m a 69yo Australian & have loved Van’s music since i was about 20yo.
    Can we get him to perform in Australia—it would be Heaven.

    Nancy:
    Your video is surpassed only by how Van simply owns a song. Both are smooth, seamless, in fact; however, the real force of any of his songs begins with, and ends in, his tortured soul. Bering on stage is the only tonic he knows; if he stops these gigs–good night, Van.

  • Vanfan8:

    Saw Van play this live in Boston a few years ago; he played alto sax and brought me to the verge of tears it was so hauntingly beautiful – he actually played it to sound like the record and put some effort in to actually singing the vocals, not talking or shouting through them – timeless memory.
