And Tony Levin's band is opening the show-how incredible is that. Jobson is much nore intersting to me on electric violin than keys, the whole band sounds HOT!

This could be great. I love Jobson's keys work and his violin playing. His style (though not sure we can assume much about what it might be like now) would seem to mesh well with Trey Gunn's playing. I don't know the other guys but am definitely looking forward to hearing what they come up with.

I talked to Eddie Jobson once, but didn't know it until I hung up the phone. He was promoting some women's choir project and opened an account with the media research company I was working for at the time. I talked to this nice, polite Englishman named Edward about his account. And then as I hung up I was reading the account and realized who I had spoken to. Love his work in UK, and his "guest' appearance with Tull. I've never heard his "Green Album", but I always hear great things about it.

Oh wow- you lost a chance to geek out! :D This new thing sounds cool, but I'll believe it when I hear it-though this sounds more stable than the other UK project he was talking about for the last 8 years or so.

Yeah, I was bummed after hanging up, but didn't have the nerve to call him back. Another co-worker there was working on an account for ZZ Top. She ended up speaking to Billy Gibbon's Mom, of all people! As to Jobson, you are of course referring to the UK Legacy project that fell apart. That one was delayed for years. I wonder if any of that music is ending up on UKZ?

If this really happens, and based on various other events in my life, not to mention the temperatures around here lately there is no other rational conclusion than yes, hell is in fact freezing over.

Well, I could be wrong, but I think it would take mucho dinero to get them. They are all based in different countries, so the travel expenses alone would be considerable. Their album was done over the internet. Also, Jobson being the perfectionist he is, I'm not sure if he could bring himself to leave so much to chance with a timeslot and shared stage. But I could be wrong...!
