How can I not post something here after meeting the man himself! I used to think I couldn't possibly appreciate Craig more than I did already. I was wrong. So, soooooo wrong! Laughing Even after a huge gig and a very long night, he was really amazing to take some time out for me and I really do appreciate it! Craig. Is. DA MAN!!! cheers

Can't believe that tomorrow, I'll be off to appreciate Craig in concert for the third time this year - holy cheese, I never would've imagined I'd get so lucky! *preparing to initiate full-on Craig appreciation mode* Very Happy

I appreciated Craig ENORMOUSLY in Atlanta this week! I particularly appreciated Starlings. It was a really great show - and, though it goes without saying, I'll say it anyway: Craig is DA MAN!

A Craig fan =)
That's cool, sadly and mostly, basic people only see the singer (and that a true thing, just check how many people are following Guy and how many follow Craig on Twitter, the difference is huge ) but a singer without the rest of the band is nothing special. He's just a singer. Piano adds so much emotions in songs ! I love Craig's part too, in a lot of songs, especially in some riots (I also like the violin version but piano is more touching) he made me enjoy piano and keys so much that I bought a keyboard and started learning ! Very Happy

He also looks like a nice guy, from what I see on Twitter for exemple he seems to answer quite often to fans, contrary to some others who never answers. But well, I really can understand, Guy for exemple receives way too many messages...

I have huge respect for Craig! I love his piano work, it is beautiful stuff! But more so I respect him for his production skills on Seldom Seen Kid. I am a Sound Technology student so he is a big inspiration to me as an aspiring producer!

I loved watching some of the videos he is in showing how they created some of the sounds on the album. I love the fact that Craig used some real unorthodox recording methods and techniques which had great effect! I'm a firm believer that recording a track should never have a set process, and Craig has proved this is true.

Overall I find his production style is wonderfully "human". It really gives the album the feeling of being right there listening to them play, as apposed to heavily manufactured and edited sounds that some bands are exposed to nowadays. =)

You're right. I thought about tweeting Guy he should make advertisings to follow Craig and Jupp! It's strange, I don't get it either. I follow and write all three of them. *LOL* If they want or not. Very Happy

Although I'm admittetly a Guy girl... Btw. He's not just a singer - he's also the lyricist.
But I get your point. All five members together make Elbow what they are - the greatest band.
It's the same with U2. Bono on his own - noone would care - as a band, yes.

So we need all of them including Craig with his amacing taste for music!!!!!!!!
