And nothing more annoying than when the amateuers in the audience are invited to sing along! In fairness to The Searchers, this 'practice' seems to go on in quite a few concerts by other performers and I have never appreciated the concept. I prefer total silence (never figured out why the other girls screamed at the Beatles concerts when I was 12 -- I guess I was born 'old') so I can hear the music and the words to the songs from the band I paid to see.
Even on the live Swedish Sessions track of When You Walk In The Room, Chris invites the audience to all sing along!!! Fortunately, we can't hear them if they ARE singing....what a break!!!
You are right about Chris -- he was ♥ spectacular ♥ obviously, his life was never the same without the other Searchers either. They all needed each other. They each brought something magic to the table, and some of us will always prefer the music that included Chris and/or Tony.
One of my Top Five...
