I think you might have a few points there... I have always had the feeling that Jim had more to do with the stageing of the live shows than Meat admitted...

I have only seen Meat live 5 times, and during those times he's had enough chances to improvise to come off as having fun and not giving a shit... for example when, during the WTTN tour... the curtain wouldn't drop... and he turns to Patti and says... that's your fault too... the look on her face... wonderful...

but yes... bring back the original fun they had... and that would fill houses....
