Fred Makes the Paper

Post by esteban » Wed Sep 05, 2007 8:20 am

And no, it wasn't the funny pages!

Apparently the Chattanooga Times-Free Press called up some old fogies at recording studios around town to get their thoughts on the 40th anniversary of the Beatle's Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band release. I would have missed this completely if not for my lovely wife; despite Fred's chronicling his complete physical makeover, I didn't recognize his mug shot first time through. My, but you have changed.

Too bad they spelled Schendel incorrectly in the article, adding an extra "L". I was hoping the mug shot caption would read "Prog Music's Frank" :lol:

A sample:

"They were incorporating classical elements into what they were doing, and they were making all these crazy amazing sounds in the studio, none of which I could understand at the time. I had no insight into how they were doing these things, but I definitely was interested in finding out."

Anyone who has listened to GH knows he found out!

Oh cool, I already forgot that was coming out! I need to find a copy and see how incoherent I come off sounding. Which day's paper is it actually?

Well, whattaya know? And they spelled your last name correctly in the sound clip box! But...I can't get it to play. Then again, I'm on a very limited laptop right now; I'll try again when I get to the university.
