Default Thomas Dolby

Thomas Dolby on youtube playing Blinded Me With Science. Interesting that him standing there alone and singing is more entertaining than his rock video.

Nice ... though I have nothing to compare it to, I've never even heard of this guy! Nice enough to watch it till the end anyway.

Gad, I thought I posted this to a different forum. But I'm glad you liked it.

LOL! But since this is the Corner Pub - why not? One thing I found interesting is that this was at Bing: I sort of got the idea they regularly organize concerts like this on their premises (employees only?).

It looks like it's a part of live performance radio, with this being the equivalent of a studio audience. And somehow Microsoft got involved with this.

Not THE Dolby?

No -- I see he was British ... and called Ray ...

You might have wanted to use that kind of Dolby on this kind of Dolby.

From what I read, Dolby Labs tried to get T. Dolby to change his name, but the record company refused. The court ruled that T. could use the name, but could not release electronic equipment using the name.

That sounds entirely resonable to me. (Interesting that for once the courts do not side with 'big business'.)
