Welcome Jonpod

To my delight the major German Cd mailorder allso have Lex Rex and Live at Belmont in store so the way to the stores are shortening. Hope so for England too.

Hey, thanks for the welcome guys! Hi Brian and Bozo. Plus, it's great to have a band like GH who actually talk to their fans. Hi Steve! Amazing!

Steve, as for distribution, I don't really know to be honest! I know the guy in Wales who sells your stuff on ebay. Got most of my GH stuff through him. He is great but obviously does not advertise nationally. There is a local prog band called Magenta who just sell stuff over the net too. It could be that a lot of people distribute that way now. Not really sure, duh! Should have thought more about that one! :lol: My main wish is to see you play live here! Any thoughts on that?!

Which of course means that my view on the filming/recording of the Tivoli gig is - absolutely to both! How are we going to see/hear it otherwise?!

Hey - another thought - I speak fluent Welsh which sounds a bit Elvish... how about some on the next album?! :)
(I'll understand if you don't come back to me on that one! :lol: )

John

P.S. Is Fred no longer FredProgGH or whatever it was?
come to britain!!!!!

Should say Hi to you Sam too! Great work on the Latin and Elvish on TIS by the way! Read my comment about Welsh above! Are you familiar with it? Old Welsh poetry is amazing. I'll dig out some stuff one day if you're interested?! :)

Thanks!!

No... way.... fluent in WELSH? Ok, you are officially my hero. Welsh poetry? COOL!!! I'd love to see it!! Unfortunately the only exposure I've really had to Welsh is through the blog of a good college friend who's right now taking the two-month crash course in Welsh at Lampeter, I think - so I don't have a clue how to pronounce anything, but I fully intend to make her speak Welsh to me when she gets back. I really wish I was learning it too.

Steve!!! Can we have the next album in Welsh? PLEASE?!???? *puppy eyes* It would be almost as cool as having a Beolwulf concept album in authentic Anglo-Saxon...

Hi Jonpod!

Hey there everyone. I'm the current FNG here. The name is Tom, I'm 26 and currently stationed in SC with the AF. I first found out about GH while doing a Limewire search for prog music (2004). I was hooked and immediately ordered two of their albums. I now have half the collection as well as the latest live DVD. In my spare time I like to photograph trains and plunk away on my bass and keyboard.

Cheers!

Welcome aboard! You'll enjoy it here; this forum is a friendly bunch.

Did you know there's a prog band based in Sumter? http://www.farpointband.com
Quikrete - the biggest name in concrete since Jimmy Hoffa.

New member of the forum, and relatively new fan of the band too.
I don't have any of the CDs yet but I own the two DVDs.
I'm a biology professor in western Pennsylvania, married with 3 kids aged 21, 14, and 9. None of them really like prog, but my 14 y.o. son is a big LotR fan. He watched a bit of the Live at Belmont DVD with me and really liked "the guy with the Tasmanian Devil T-shirt." :)
I got into prog by way of Led Zeppelin to Rush with a fondness for the longer songs, leading to my first Yes album in about 1980 (it was "Yesshows", not the best intro to Yes but loved the 2 epic tracks). I now have something like 2200 CDs of mainly prog, classic rock, and jazz fusion and can usually find something to like about most every genre.
I don't know if any band members post here, but if so:
Hi, thanks for the great music, and please continue!

Hey, great - thanks for the welcome.
I just read on your bio that your favorite TV show is 24. Mine too! The new season looks excellent so far...

No spoilers though, because Fred hasn't seen it yet! Jack is my hero!

Steve I didn't know you watched 24. My favorite part of all the seasons would probably be in season 4 when Tony showed up and saved Jack. That was a nice moment. Maybe we should make a 24 thread.
