  2. Back when Van Morrison was still great- before he started writing childish anti-lockdown songs. I respect his opinion even though I don’t agree with them, but a man with his talent for lyrics should not sound like a 5-year old having a tantrum.

  3. Well said Mark

    By Trevor Smith on May 3, 2022

  4. I agree with Mark. I think that the 1980s were Van’s high point. He’s done some very good stuff since, but he was consistently brilliant in the 1980s.

  5. I live in Norway, but was not at the concert. Van got off at a wrong train station(by purpose), and said he did not feel for doing the concert. They persuaded him to do it anyway. This is a top-notch band. Thanks to BigO for sharing this!

  6. Wonder if he has had covid yet?

    By HHH on May 3, 2022

  7. I don’t. Shitting my pants and leaving it there for several hours makes people stay far away from me.

    Being an asshole does that too, so I’m double safe.

    By HHH on May 3, 2022

  8. I met Van in Phoenix back in 2012. His pecker was so big, I could barely get it in my mouth. Putting up my ass was even more difficult

    By U L E on May 3, 2022

  9. ANYONE who is down on Van Morrison for supporting
    an individuals right to express an unpopular (with democrats) opinions, clearly has their head up their asses as much as U L E would like to have their penis’s up his. Your welcome, U L E.

    By otis t on May 3, 2022

  10. Thanks.

    By BD on May 3, 2022

  11. I have a feeling that Van knows who U L E blew & i’ ‘twernt he. HHH does Dallas.
    Derreck & The AntiChrist, the sub humans… you should bow to me and call me master. You are not superior in any way. I ‘twernt dark, I been bleached haired.
    Now, will you PLEASE instruct The Big O to deliver some rad, live Pia Zadora for us to chill out to!

    By Yummy on May 3, 2022

  12. LOL at the irony in Mark’s comment. Sounding like a 5 year old having a tantrum indeed.

    By steve22 on May 3, 2022

    By ELU on May 4, 2022

  18. Who starts these rumors? What’s a hogie ?

    By Jocko P on May 4, 2022

  19. Van Morrison was hung like a horse . He was also very short . When standing naked he resembled a human tripod. He also had great stamina . The man could fuck for hours . I would blow him for an hour , he would blow his load in my mouth and on my tits , then fuck me for two more hours blowing three more loads in my Pussy. He wanted anal , but no way Jose . He would have killed me with that log .

  20. Disgusting pervo-wackos at it again.

    By Theo on May 4, 2022

  21. Its like a merry go round aka a pervert go round. Grown men acting like elementary school kids. Men posing as women. Taking it up the ass. I will put up with whopper swappers dry humor. This place has become a total farce

    By Theo on May 4, 2022

  22. Mark is a 5 year old having a tantrum. All the name stealing faggots have fucked this place up. Im not even me. Im not sure if I posted as U _ L-E or Yummy or Pam Des Barris. Im so fucked up

    By Theo on May 4, 2022

    By Theo on May 4, 2022

  25. Bailey Jay is a shemale pornstar. She made me take a shower with her and made me squeal like a pig. The next day she made me sit down to pee and pee on a pregnancy test stick. She swore she would get this femboy pregnant

    By Deliverance Piggy on May 4, 2022

  26. Just looked at bailey jay and im jaggin off to her pics.he/she has a great set of boobs. she can fuck me in my ass anytime

    By swappers on May 4, 2022

  27. Derrick (or whoever)- Van is Irish, and protesting European pandemic measures.

    By Mark on May 4, 2022

  28. Huh?? Whut??

    By Derrick on May 4, 2022

  29. Theo , shut the fuck up , you self righteous piece of shit .

    By T J on May 4, 2022

  30. Theo is probably another one doing the copycat routine here . Another fake U L E , anti , hhh , Mark , Derrick, swappers etc

    By T J on May 4, 2022

  31. I’ve been laying low for some time . None of these recent comments were me . Hebrew Mark is probably Theo as well as his other name stealing bullshit

    By HHH on May 4, 2022

  32. When I comment you can be sure it will be serious subject matter , not the stupid middle school crap about genatailia so popular here

    By HHH on May 4, 2022

  33. I doubt most of these comments are Derrick or anti , Nelson either . They’re probably as fed up with the name stealing idiots as I am

    By HHH on May 4, 2022

  34. Disgusting pervo-morons posting obsenities as Theo.

    By Theo on May 4, 2022

  35. I’ve been laying in shit for some time . It distracts from from the misery of my pathetic life . And it feels good too .

    By HHH on May 5, 2022

  36. When I comment you can be sure it will be just more of the stupid middle school crap about genatailia and turds that’s so fucking stupid .

    By HHH on May 5, 2022

  37. I make most of these comments by Derrick or anti or Nelson .

    I’m a name stealing idiot and a poopy pants bedwetter .

    By HHH on May 5, 2022

  38. Very lame , Hebrew Mark

    By HHH on May 5, 2022

  39. Are you the one doing the genatailia talk too ?

    By HHH on May 5, 2022

  40. Wow four serious comments before the idiot trolls descend! Losing their grip! Then the same old same old, drivelling moronic shite from the schoolboys in their Mommy’s basement ad nauseam. I mean pretending to be the musos on here is one thing but you are pretending to be other trolls?!! Only Merkins could be THAT dumb ! :)

    Hey ho, still here and holding on for the music . . . . . .
    Thanks Big O saw The Groundhogs a couple of times back in the day and live they were great. Cherry Red being the closest to a hit but that sound never really transferred to album. Enjoy this tho’
