No.


I'll be playing a couple songs with Eric as well (hint: Mellotron and also capo at the 5th fret).

On a side note, Eric's band will feature Rachel on cello (who most of you are familiar with) and Emily Grace. Emily has worked with Fred and I since she was very small (she's still kinda small), and sang backups on Lirazel - the studio version.
Hope many of you can make the show!

Sounds like it's going to be a great show! I'm hoping to be there.

I gotta say this- at this point I feel physically and mentally more prepared than I've felt for a GH show ever, going all the way back to ProgDay '95. Everyone sounds great. I'm really looking forward to these!

That's pretty fantastic Fred!

I was thinking it'd be a goodern if from time to time you guys could do little mini-videos of what goes into pulling off a live show... you know, the behind the scenes stuff like how you setup the keyboards for what sounds you want and when, how you guys pick whats songs to sing, how you decide what to change from the 'album' version of a song, etc..

Just a wish =p

I like that idea - I'm just a little concerned you'd see what a bunch of goons we are and lose respect for us pretty quickly <g> But let me think on that one :)
We're going to start up in a couple of hours. Matt's on the road, on his way here.

Come on, Mayor. We all know your specialty is propaganda. Just stage a "live action" Glass Hammer council whereby you decide the songs for the set. You can make us thing WHATEVER you want about your song deciding process - deep scholarship, fights to the near death, thumb wars, computed randomizing functions, blindfolded pin-the-tail-on-the-CD, rock paper scissors, etc. The possibilities are ENDLESS!

I think it would be better if it were "PROG-rock, paper scissors..."

I really wanted to make it to the show, but I just couldn't make it work. Little kids + work + mid-week show + long drive ... it was just too much. And I still almost came anyway.

Hopefully, I can work it out to come up to 3RP and finally get to see y'all live.

Hope the show goes well tonite! I expect detailed reports from those forum members in attendance.

Tremendous show! The Eric Parker Band were great too. Ya'll will love the new material-very different, very fresh! Plus some great older tunes never or seldomly played. Off to 3RP! Great to see Esteban and all of the GH family. Thanks to Matt for hangin out with us at dinner.
