Unpredictable can be exactly that


So The Columbus Dispatch and the Cleveland Plain Dealer have reviews of a recent Todd Gigs and the unpredictable grouchy Todd did not go down universally well with the reviewers -or indeed some of the commentators "He is so talented but can be patronizing. I do not bother going to see him live anymore, I don't know why he still tours, he doesn't seem to enjoy it".

I recall his shows at Ronnie Scott's a few years back and my gf certainly thought he was a bit of an arse on one of those nights. Maybe it explains why usually he doesn't talk much at his gigs and just plays the songs.

He's kind of a puzzling guy all right. I imagine his wife has to be extremely flexible about stuff.

I've had the pleasure of talking to him on a few occasions and he has never been less than pleasant. I wouldn't be overly pushed on the covers he is doing in the States right now but his 'unpredictability' is part of the attraction and intrigue!

Thanks for the comment Anthony. I agree. Also, I met him last year and chatted to him for a while and he was a delight.

I'm glad to hear your guys had a good experience dealing with him.
