Came across this photo on Barney Hurley's Twitter the other day. It's one of the few (the only?) photos I've seen from the Circus Money sessions. Surely such a legendary work deserves better documentation. Are there more photos of the sessions out there? Can they be shared on this site?

I rewatched a clip recently of China Crisis recounting their time working with WB, and there was a bit about Walter "blowing them away" with a keyboard part he wrote. By their (cheeky) telling, his playing was on par with Liszt's. Which got me thinking: How was Walter as a keyboard player? Obviously the keyboard was an important part of his compositional process post 1980s, and we've heard sequenced parts he's put down, but that's probably about as much as there is out there. Did he have a piano in the house? Take the playing seriously? Can anyone––@Moderator: D-Mod?––offer their observations? Relevant portion: 4:02-4:50:

I've always wondered exactly what is being depicted in the 2vN cover art. Is that an overgrown golf course? A beach? Is Donald's shadow on a cell phone? Who came up with the art concept and where was the photo taken? One of the coolest parts of this forum is the look behind the curtain. I'd love to give the 2vN cover that treatment here.
