We are struggling to find observations to make about B.A.D.?
:mrgreen:

To be fair not many BAD fans on this site but clash fans that have a liken to the band because of Mick Jones.

The promotion and marketing of BAD at the time and throughout its career was just appalling (thats another observation)

Bazarboy's recently posted interviews reminded me of a lesser-known (slightly) BAD-related piece of trivia: The massive early 90s hit, the 'bootleg' version of The Source featuring Candi Staton's "You Got The Love', was made in André's studio.

Learned a little bit today about the gigs the band did in Brazil in 87. They played four nights in Rio, August 13-16, then in São Paulo for three, August 21-23. Was able to also find via pics and videos from Mick's R&R Library, a couple sets from those nights. In Rio on one night (possibly the same gig as the video), the did: Medicine Show/Sony/Hollywood Boulevard/BAD/Poontang/Sambadrome/A Party/V Thirteen/Stone Thames/E=MC2/Bottom Line/C'mon Every Beatbox/1999. And in São Paulo, they did: Medicine Show/Hollywood Boulevard/BAD/V Thirteen/Sambadrome/Poontang/A Party/Stone Thames/Sightsee MC/E=MC2/Beatbox/Bottom Line/1999.

Why does Don play guitar in the E=MC2 video?
There's a tiny, tiny hopeful part of me that says you guys are running a Kaufmanesque long con on the board

Because he's a comical little geezer.

It's a good film. Camp and fun and shiny.
Authority is supposedly grounded in wisdom, but I could see from a very early age that authority was only a system of control and it didn't have any inherent wisdom. I quickly realised that you either became a power or you were crushed

Yep. I think he also had Leo in the retrospective vids he did for Bob Marley.
