We will be adjusting the lineup a good bit. Its going to be me, Fred, Matt, David and Robert Streets as our new singer.

Robert is an incredible singer! I have the pleasure at hearing him sing with the worship band at church. this should be great!!!!!

Those familiar with GH history know that Fred and I were both in bands that 'nearly made it'. Robert was in that band with me. Three years
He's a first class show-man, killer vocalist and a very very very good drummer.
Since this may be the mid-life crisis gig for GH (in more ways than one) I think you can expect to see us trying to prove something with this show. All parties will be performing at 110%.

Should be really interesting with no strings, choir, or female voices. Does limit things a bit, but also opens up alot of possibilities. I can see alot of COA still being able to be played,and maybe even some really old stuff?Robert is a phenomonal showman and singer. I don't know why exactly, but his voice always reminds me of Michael Sweet of Stryper(that is a compliment).

So membership in Glass Hammer is kind of a dynamic thing - that's cool. As long as Susie, Carl, and the AST don't pick up the bassist and keyboardist from a Glass Hammer tribute band and...
wait a second...
sorry just got deja vu

Nah - Carl has his hands full and Susie just put in 2 hours here at the studio today. We're still working with both of them :)

Indeed, it has always been so. We kept a very stable lineup there for a stretch. Well, apart from singers, and that's all we're really doing now.

3RP

Post by yeshead 777 » Fri Dec 19, 2008 1:09 pm

3RP is shaping up. 4 Big slots to go! It Bites sound like they'll be good-lots of good vibes about their new CD, Kino-Picture(two/fourths of It Bites)is pretty good stuff. They should be great live!Any guesses on the remaining four?

Hey,
We're scheduled for mid-afternoon (3:30 I think) on Saturday. And don't worry - we aren't offended at not being the headliner or even the band next to the headliner. I'm relieved actually :)

I figured that ya'll would be in an afternoon slot. I'm excited cause I don't know much about any of the other bands except GH and IQ so far, but they all sound pretty interesting so far. I'm hoping one of the remaining three is Karmakanic, or possibly even Keith Emerson Band.
