This photograph shows our audience at a show we did at Glastonbury in 2008. I'm stating that for the record before D. Trump claims it to be the crowd at one of his rallies. These people are lively and happy and don't want to cause anybody any trouble.
We did have some trouble that day, however. There was some kind of an audio mishap between the stage, the sound boards and the BBC, which was carrying it all. It resulted in several minutes of silence from many of us, while the drums continued, creating a nice solo moment for Ronnie Tutt and King Errisson, which has to be regarded as a net gain.
It makes me think about how much I enjoyed playing with those rascals for so many years. I don't want to say I get nostalgic for the tour, but last night I went into the kitchen and opened the refrigerator door. When the light came on, I did twenty minutes.
Unlike Mr. Trump, I'll add some honest details. The size of our audience was increased due to some other acts on the show, including Kings of Leon, Jay-Z, Amy Winehouse, James Blunt, Crowded House, Martha Wainwright, Leonard Cohen, John Mayer, Brian Jonestown Massacre, Gilbert O'Sullivan—all of these on our stage (The Pyramid Stage) alone, along with others, probably including your favorite.
I had time to wander around the grounds a bit, and people seemed to be having a really good time. Then I had a chance to climb up to the area above the stage and watch the stage and John Mayer's band from above. If I could attend this way, I might attend more of the giant festival events, but otherwise I steer clear, leaving more room for others who enjoy crowds more than I do.
