hey umm.. steve... assuming any of us can get there- any reason why we also could learn the parts and join them on stage?

after all, 125 sounds better than 120 ;-)

Hey, we're really lucky we got to do it once. Don't keep harassing the poor guys to let us do it again. They already know we'd be willing, and if they wanted us to help i'm sure they would have asked. Sitting back and enjoying the whole concert from our seats will be nice too. Just basking in the Majesty of the Royal Lords of Hammerdom will be pretty flippin' cool. ;) :lol:

If there's no-one familiar in the choir then I suppose I'll just have to throw beer bottles at the singer as usual...ho hum...

I tried to get the choir gig with these wankers. Afterall, humming and wooing ain't that tough, eh? Oh no! They stuck me on keys instead. Yeah, learn some of Fred's parts. No biggie....

Arghhhhhhhhhh! (sung in a really choir-like way.)

Of course at this point I draw a discrete veil over the precise meaning of the term "Wa*ker" as I couldn't possibly comment :twisted:

being a personality

Post by Lazarama » Tue Jun 28, 2005 4:25 pm

In high school, when someone referred to you as a personality or having a nice personality, it was synonymous with a solo prom night.

It was with great a bit of pride gulping that I changed the GH link on the SH page, noting that Mr. Babb and Mr. Schendel are now *legends* whilst my comrades and I languish in "personalityville." However, I wasn't able to swallow enough of that particular deadly sin to adopt the moniker from the GH website championing them as "America's Greatest Progressive Rock Band." There's humility...and then there's simple self-respect, eh?
I flirted with an addendum such as "America's Greatest Progressive Rock Band in the state of Tennessee"....but obviously that didn't solve the dilemma. So I considered "America's Greatest Progressive Rock Band from the Southeast." Same problem. My last candidate was "America's Greatest Progressive Rock Band in the Eastern Standard Time Zone"... Which I really liked as we're safely in CST. But by then my pride was turning me into a flower and before all my petals sprouted, I decided to leave things as they are, provide the link, and let discriminating folks decide. (But go with Salem Hill and you'll get free stuff!)

Ah, but no one's immune to the lure of disco. Any of you Kansas fans remember David Ragsdale's solo CD "David & Goliath," which was released in '97 and accompanied by 5 or 6 live shows? I have an audio recording of one of these shows, and right in the middle of one of these prog gems, the band's rhythm section plays a coupla measures disco-style. It'll crack you up if you ever have the chance to hear it, especially if you've listened to the studio version of the song.
Quikrete - the biggest name in concrete since Jimmy Hoffa.
