Together At Home has been running over the weekend, featuring rock stars singing online from their own homes.
In the Rolling Stones’ submission, Charlie Watts seems to be playing on assorted pots and pans.
Perhaps this is the future? The Together At Home style. No more huge gaudy stages and studios: instead all concerned crammed into one little room.
Given that so much of their content is coming from people with bad webcams and worse microphones, it seems that the mainstream media are having to dress down and emulate their guests. I was amused yesterday to come across a Channel 4 studio which pretended to be the corner of a room, with bookshelves in the background.
Perhaps they’ll stop wearing suits next, and come on in jeans and T-shirts, with mugs of coffee.
Nobody yet seems able to take the next step, and light up cigarettes as well.
