<BR>Ok.... I have heard some people saying that they are going through some kind of GB withdrawl.... without any TV appearance, concert, and new CD... this year is the quiestest year. At least ever since I started paying attention to what Garth is doing since 98.<P>Well.. last year was supposed to be a lay-low year, but with Chris Gaines and the new Christmas album, Garth was on TV more often. And with 2 new CDs, we can't whin no more...LOL<P><BR>Now... we have one new song to cheer for :) But what's next? The song is not released as a single, and there won't be any TV appearance except the second part of Austin City Limit :D <P><BR>Is anyone feeling the <B>withdrawl</B> gradually?<P><BR>A month ago I had a pleasure to see Garth in concert (Equality Rocks)..... but Garth just isn't on the news like he used to. And this is a real lay-low :o<P><BR>What do you think?<P>TommyN

Come to Europe and you would know what REAL GB withdrawals feels like. :)<P>You have no reason for that over there the first 2 years :)<P>BrianN

LOL.. oh come on... <P>I think I am spoiled by Garth's frequent TV appearances.. but again, I live in North America where Garth lives.. so it's natural to see him more often here...LOL<P><BR>TommyN

LOL.. I mean, he lives in the United States... isn't he supposed to spend more time here? At least he had toured Denmark right?<P>Back in Taiwan, people can just wish some big names would come and do a concert. But never... there are many teenagers who like Backstreetboys in Taiwan, but I doubt they believe BSB would ever tour Taiwan. It's just not possible. In your case, Garth DID take time and tour Denmark.. It's not like he never take time with his European fans. Besides, country music not popular in Europe (or at least it's not played on popular stations).... it's reasonable that he has doubts for another world tour ;)<P><BR>TommyN

Country music is not all unpopular here :)<P>They still play a lot of Shania :) And the most amazing part is that it is her country versions they play the most :)<P>You are right he live in the states, but that's a lame excuse I think :o Other huge American artists doesn't think that way :)<P>He has played 1 concert here in DK :) back in 1994 :)<BR>And with the risk of starting a war (which I hope won't happen because Tommy force me to answer this ;)) I will say that he has promised several times he would tour here again in 1996, 1998 and obviously also 1999.<BR>So the last time he took time with his European fans was in 1994 (except Ireland).<P>Just think about what has been going on between 1994 and 2000. A LOT of Garth stuff.<P>BrianN

05-28-2000, 04:40 PM
Oh come on... except Shania, I doubt anybody is that popular. If your station likes country, then they should have played Garth's a long time ago.... <P>Like I said, I can help you with requesting ;)<P><BR>TommyN

What's all this talk about Garth 'withdrawals'?! I went straight on to the 'hard' stuff with Chris Gaines, and with all the great music he and Garth have left us with, I see no reason to come down from this 'high' I'm on ever! No way I'm gonna get let down easy either. This stuff is for keeps!N

Tommy, They are playing the new song quite a bit on my radio, so I know it's a single now!!<BR>They do a country challenge on there and Garth was against the 12 yr old Billy Gillman "One Voice" and Billy won, but they are still playing Garth's alot!<BR>Donna :)N

I just want to clear on the fact that I am not pushing Garth or anything. Yes, we have a new song, but it's not on any CD. I don't get to hear the new song often because my station only plays it like twice max a day. It's not even on our own Top40 chart :( Then I don't get to see the new video on TV because of some problem :o<P>Fresh_Horses, I am not pushing Garth to do anything... I am looking forward to the second part of Austin City. But again, the rest of the year might be quiet unless there are some news about THE LAMB, which I am very looking forwards to as well :)<P>Personally, I am glad that Garth could take a break from mass media. But I am just thinking what might happen next... <P><BR>Tommy<BR>N

Garth's got the goods that doesn't grow old. His songs are more important now then ever. What's wrong with you people!?N

Fresh_Horses
05-29-2000, 03:22 AM
I agree with fuzzwuzz. How can you not listen to the old stuff? Who cares if it isnt new, its Garth. He can't release a new CD every single freakin day like you oviously think he should. You know what, he is thinking about retiring which you probably have known for awhile, I think he makes it pretty ovious there that he isn't going to be releasing that much more material. Just be thankful he gave you all that other great music. N

I too miss seeing and hearing Garth on TV, but I am so glad he is finally getting the time he needs with his family.<P>I have been dealing with my GB Withdrawals by watching videos and looking at old pictures. It's amazing how fast memories come back and one can feel immersed in GB all over again.N

05-29-2000, 05:37 PM
I'm not only immersed with Garth. I'm downright permeated, as in 'steeped' in addiction! Withdrawal now would be too painful. At least I know I'm on the best stuff available!N

Tom! Do you mean a duet album with both Garth and Chris Gaines!? That would be neat! <BR> In fact, Angela McCann has already written a song for them to do together. The lyrics are awesome! Merry is supposed to give Garth Angela's song at the Hollywood Bowl in June. <BR> With Garth, you never know what he might have up his sleeve and do next. We'll see!N

You're part of it but I was mostly talking about Major Tom. Who says we are in need of a new CD badly. 2 years ago there was double live last year we got Chris Gaines and the Christmas album. We are in need of nothing. N

Oh and what is that supposed to mean Smitten? <P>Major Tom,<BR>You know what think what you want to think about me. You oviously think I am ignorant and that I think my oppinion is the only correct one. Doesn't everyone think what they think is right? Maybe you do think you are in need of a new CD. I do not because he just released another new one last November. That is not even over a year ago. All I can say is I cannot wait till Garth retires and is away from the demanding people who think they need 3 albums a year. <BR>I'm sure I will be banned now for the next 24 hours since that is usually what always happens to me and since I just posted a oppinion that not everyone in the rest of this topic agrees with. Shame on me. But I might also add that a real Garth fan would never get sick of listening to the old stuff. N

Fresh_Horses<P>I agree with Kirsty :)<BR>You can't listen to X-mas music at summer time, and Chris Gaines is not a country album.<BR>We (Especially us overseas fans) need more CD's from him.<BR>If he doesn't want to, then he shouldn't have started out in this business. He know very well that fans want more and more and more and more ;)<P>BrianN

Fresh_Horses<P>I don't think you're ignorant. Listening to other people's views is how we expand our own perspectives on issues so I never think my opinion is the only correct one.<P>I don't agree with you making personal judgements on other people though - the degree to which I support GB is my decision and I will not be influenced by having my loyalty to him questioned.<P>I love GB's music and when I have had a break from the 'old stuff' I'll listen again and rediscover why I started listening to him in the first place.<P>KirstyN

Well, as for me, I'm positively addicted to Chris Gaines Greatest Hits. I can play it and play it over and over, and it just keeps getting better and better! And because of Chris, I went head over heels for Garth's music now too. There is a sincerity in their songs that never gets old. In fact, it makes the future so bright, ya gotta wear shades. I don't see anything but looking ahead with their music, rather than looking back. Even Garth said, around the time Sevens came out, that "Friends in Low Places" would probably be the big one for Garth in the future. Garth is always looking ahead with all his music. He expects things to happen as a result. And with Chris Gaines, looking back IS looking ahead!N

Can I put in a slightly different point of view. Even if Garth retires at the end of this year, and stops making music, we can always hope that he will, one day, feel like making a comeback. No matter what, we will always have his music and we will know that Garth is still around. I don't know how many of you knew of John Denver and his music. But, I'll bet most of you know that he was killed in a tragic accident. What made his death even more of a tragedy is that he was making a career comeback, he was writing, performing and recording new music. His last album, containing his new songs, was one of the best he had ever done. Now that he is gone, there is no hope of ever hearing the music he still had inside of him, the things he hadn't yet written. We will never get to know how great that might have been. We will never get to see how far he could have gone in his comeback and we will never get to see him perform ever again. With Garth, even he has said that he will probably continue writing. Then, there are the movies that he is going to work on. Garth will still be around in many ways. With John Denver, all I have now is his music and my memories.<BR>Bee<BR>N

Bee, you're right.<P>Of courseI do not hope that Garth allready will retire at the end of this year :o<BR>But one "fine" day he will, but that day will not be the day his musics stops.<P>Wether he's retired or not, he will be with us forever. Isn't it true that most of the artists become more famous AFTER they died?<BR>(Don't understand me wrong ---&gt; I certainly don't wish him dead !!!!!!!!!!)<BR>I meant that whenever he retires, he'll be more among us!!!<P>We will always have his music and our memories.<P>About his (maybe) withdrawal, I can't really give any comment, only that from the day Garth came into my life, I hear and see him more than ever on Internet, TV and radio.<BR>But for me I it never will be enough! ;)<P>At last I would like to say that I, just as everone of you, hope Garth will not retire, at least not now allready. It's much too early! :( :(<P>Lars.<BR>N
