You have done a
For a band of your size and stature, you have handled your legacy and your recorded output better than anyone. However, it's frustrating to see you come so close to perfection and then blow it. Now with the release of the Rose Bowl DVD, it's come to our attention that the show's opener, "Breathe" will be omitted from the DVD but available on a deluxe (and more expensive) 2 disc version. Why?
I understand that some DVD's get shifted and songs get dropped for the 5.1 sound, alas, it's cutting up your legacy and leaving an imperfect and incomplete document for the remainder of time to be viewed. Plus, over 10-million people watched the YouTube broadcast of this show, so it's not like people won't realize that a song is missing. More importantly, "Breathe" is one of the better songs on your last album. If you had to cut a song for the 5.1 sound, why not "Boots", easily one of the worse singles of your career.
I love you guys and you come so close to perfection, why not go that extra step and secure history the way it happened? You wouldn't cut out a family member from pictures, would you?
