You can't understand anything the guy said, whether it be his accent or not is irrelevant.

One of my favorite parts of the new DVD (besides his performance on Pieces of Eight, which I thought was great- relax Deyoungians, you can like both versions and not have the sky fall) is when he's talking and at one point he says "YOU sir... or madame, excuse me..." I thought it was hilarious. JY is who he is and he's just not a great front guy. Shaw and Gowan are great front guys though. Gowan doesn't have Dennis' voice, but he's got a good voice and he does a great job in their shows. As a musician, I'm blown away by the guy's chops.
I saw the GI/Po8 show in Erie, PA and it was his performance of Pieces of Eight that finally won me over. I liked him before that, but was annoyed at time with his banter and spinning keyboard, etc.. after that show I was a fan, I think he did an excellent version of that song.
