Really though - we *barely* have enough to start drawing conclusions about D's abilities or non-abilities as a guitarist...

A few shows. A few youtube videos. These are dude's first shows in years, and the first shows where he's introducing himself as a guitarist...

Folks are acting like he sounds terrible - he doesn't. He doesn't sound great either, but I'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt for at least a while... especially because you can sort of see him trying to find his groove again (not just at the guitar, but in all of those clips... the *only* place he looks totally relaxed is at the piano for those medley clips)

Fans and critics alike need to stop trying to use these videos as a signed/sealed/delivered judgement on D's current talent. Let's let him settle in before we release the attack dogs...
