CHAT transcript - July 27th, 2008

David: Hi Everyone

Strat335: Hey, David! How are you?

David: Hi Susan/Roger

David: Another quiet start! But no doubt others will show up soon

Strat335: Just Roger, I am taking a break from the heat...

Strat335: I never got a chance to speak to you in LA (it was a little noisey!), but I was curious as to where you are from? Cannock area?

David: No, no...am currently based in Orlando, Florida, San Francisco before that. Moved Stateside from the UK in '86. So almost a native.....well married to one at least

Strat335: That trip to LA was the only time I've been to CA. I went to Daytona, FL once...it was nice. Never been to Orlando.

David: It's different A little too small for me, having come from SF and London, but it's not forever

David: We were in Daytona over Spring Break and then Clearwater (nr. Tampa) for July 4th.

Strat335: I loved Daytona more than I liked Ft. Lauderdale for some reason. I'd like to take Susan there sometime.

Strat335: I bet that was a wild time at Spring Break, you're braver than I am. lol

David: Actually it was 'kinda quiet for a Spring Break - although we did purposely avoid the obvious places! We went to Clearwater in July, as the water is a lot warmer than Daytona's.

Strat335: Why did you want warmer water? Don't you like to see if you can sing as high as Glenn?

David: Can sit in the ocean that much longer of course!

Strat335: Are you a musician or just have a really good ear for music (seeing as to how you know who is the best and all that. lol)

David: No, well not anymore! Used to fiddle on the bass in my younger days, but after I moved here, just didn't have the time for it anymore. Still have it though, a left-handed Fender Precision. My son enjoys strumming

Strat335: What year is it?

David: 1981

Strat335: I love Precisions...I need to get a bass soon. Either that or a Jazz, but I like a Jazz neck on a Precision the best so far.

David: So Glenn's off to Italy mid-week via the UK, then back here for the Rock'n'Roll Fantasy Camp gigs...

Strat335: I have tried to figure out how to go see him in Dallas, but logistics are almost impossible.

Shirean: Hi

David: Hi luv

Strat335: On a Wednesday Susan would have to take off two days of work.

David: I wouldn't worry it about too much, his time on stage will probably be quiet limited. Each city's schedule will be a little different, so some nights he might be on for a while and other's not...

Strat335: And she had already scheduled some time off that she can't change. But it isn't here yet, I may jet up there myself if it's possible at all. Yea, it's a long drive to hear two or three songs.

Strat335: Hi Shirean!

Shirean: Hello how are you?

Strat335: I'm burning up! lol, I'm in the middle of a project outside. Just taking a short break.

David: They'll mostly be covers....but it still great to hear him sing them, it's a whole different thing of course!

Strat335: Yea, I feel bad, like I should represent Texas (lol), but Dallas is a 3 1/2 hour drive ..a really boring drive. lol

David: He's going to make a concerted effort to say "Hi" to as many folks as possible, especially if he's not onstage much on any particular night.

David: Hi Chuck

Shirean: Hey Chuck

Strat335: Hey Chuck!

chutsler: Hello David and Shirean

chutsler: ...and Roger

Strat335: Susan won't let me go by myself, she just told me. LOL

chutsler: sparse crowd today, eh?

Strat335: Hey K!

David: Hi trapezoid...

trapezoid: Howdy Strat

David: Chuck - it always starts slow....no idea why....just always does!

chutsler: Yeah, I've noticed on the transcripts....

Strat335: Maybe people do like Susan...we will be working or walking past each other and go...oh crap, the chat is today!

Strat335: We're scattered that way.

trapezoid: IP is runnin slow 2day

David: yeah, well I'll let folks off the hook since it's the middle of Summer, but come Winter.....

David: So you enjoying F U N K ? It's one of those that hasn't come off the playlist since it first arrived - just got the Japanese version with the "love mix" bonus - definitely worth the price!

Strat335: It's one of those that starts off fantastic and then gets better.

trapezoid: hi 2 Shirean and chutsler

chutsler: I used to by the Glenn Jap imports for the bonus tracks but it got a bit much (moneywise)

chutsler: Hey trapezoid!

Shirean: Hi trapezoid

David: yeah, no what you mean - although CD Japan has reasonable pricing (around $20), not the 40 or 50 it used to be.

chutsler: It's been a while since I've purchased one....

Strat335: trapezoid, liked the song I heard the other day.

trapezoid: Hughes/Thrall bonus tracks are a great suprise

David: yeah, those came out great.

David: just wish Pat would finish H/T II

Strat335: I saw a Pat Travers concert years ago when Pat Thrall and Tommy Aldridge were in the band. Rocked the house.

chutsler: What's his excuse? Too busy?

David: Yes, chuck, seriously

trapezoid: Thanks Roger, when I first started playin' before i found other 3 strings

Strat335: LOL

David: That Travers period was his (Travers) best in my book Roger.

Strat335: Man, I loved that song Stevie

chutsler: I'd still like to see a legit release of Glenn's unrelease album from 1991...

chutsler: make that unreleased!

David: it's good of course, but it just sounds so dated, perhaps one day he'll decide to let it out of the archives.

trapezoid: Saw H/T early 83' wish I haden't lost ticket

chutsler: The Sweet Revenge cd didn't do it for me....I like the demos I had on a cassette from years ago....

Strat335: We haven't heard from Dani and Pete lately, I hope they come on today. Have they signed on to the forum lately that anyone has noticed?

trapezoid: Shirean, did u see Heart is at Wildhorse on the 9th?

Strat335: I've been wanting to see them since '77. lol Never got around to it.

Shirean: No. I'm going to see them in Tampa this Wednesday - Can't wait! Got fan club seats

trapezoid: Roger, Haven't seen their name lately

trapezoid: Vacation starts on 9th. Will just miss them

Shirean: Where are you going?

trapezoid: Cheap Trick was in Peoria Few weeks ago. Still at work, missed that 1

Strat335: I didn't realize they were stil out there.

trapezoid: To the RRFC @ Wildhorse, Then Graceland, Memphis

Shirean: Cool - Graceland I always wanted to go there!

Strat335: Catch some blues on Beale St.!!

Shirean: David have you every been there?

David: No, only Nashville.

trapezoid: Yeah Roger, I think they are Billed with Heart and Journey this summer

Shirean: Yes Cheaptrick,Heart & Journey

Strat335: Oh, yea, I think I heard about them all coming to the Woodlands Pavillion, down the road from me.

David: The Walmart tour I think it's called

trapezoid: I'll try to get photos to post


Strat335: I never thought I'd hear a tour called that. That's anti-rock, ain't it?

Strat335: LOL

chutsler: Would that be because their new releases are Walmart Exclusives?

trapezoid: That's a good one!

David: If I'm not mistaken, there sponsoring the thing...

trapezoid: And I thought McDonalds' ruled the world

chutsler: I know The Eagles and (I think) Journey made their new albums Walmart exclusives.....

Shirean: All I know is that Heart will be able to make there next studio CD after this tour

Shirean: $$$$$$$

chutsler: I haven't seen Heart since the early 90's

Strat335: Well, duty calls, got to get back to work. It was nice to talk to everyone, see you on the Forum! Adios!

chutsler: Later Roger!

Shirean: Bye

David: OK, thanks for stopping by Roger, talk to you soon.

trapezoid: Take it easy Roger

trapezoid: What part of the globe ya from chutsler?

chutsler: Guess Wolfy and some of the folks 'across the pond' must be on holiday....

chutsler: Baltimore, Maryland...

David: Yeah, they enjoy their Summer's over there

trapezoid: Good town! Great crab legs/ seafood

chutsler: Thanks....we're known for Streamed Crabs...

chutsler: I mean 'STEAMED' crabs LOL

trapezoid: Cant forget the wooden mallet either

chutsler: Hi Bill

captmidnite1962: Good morning everyone!

David: Hi Bill

chutsler: trapezoid, we call them 'knockers'....

trapezoid: Howdy Bill!

captmidnite1962: Hey..I just got out of bed..so it's my morning!

chutsler: morning?!


chutsler: Oh for the life of the 'rich and famous'........

captmidnite1962: I wanted to see the Fantasy Camp at B.B. King's on the 4th..but I have to work...

captmidnite1962: I guess King Crimson two weeks later will have to do..

chutsler: I think they're in Baltimore at the Ramshead Live on the 2nd......

captmidnite1962: Are you going?

trapezoid: Is Tony Levin still with Crimson

captmidnite1962: Yes he is..

chutsler: Don't know.....it's close to my vacation....

captmidnite1962: Yeah..rthat is one benefit to being here..a lot of live music!

trapezoid: He's advertising something called Funk fingers on his site

captmidnite1962: Steve Lukather will be in NYC on the 27th

captmidnite1962: I think those are the chops stick like attachments he uses..will have to check

chutsler: Gee....I wonder if he'll do 'Hold The Line'...........

captmidnite1962: Well..I got his new CD and it is pretty solid..but yeah, he'll do a few of the Toto warhorses

trapezoid: I have a hard enough time playin' with just regular fingers

captmidnite1962: OK..back on track here....I listened to Glenn's message...am psyched about all he is doing!

chutsler: Bill, he made a statement stating that he was 19 when he recorded Hold The Line....he's 50 now...it was a pretty sarcastic statement!

captmidnite1962: I read that...just glad he is putting the bike in the shed...he had a great run

chutsler: I liked his Candyman album....just wish he'd let Rodgers do more than backing vocals on his cover of Jimi's Freedom....

captmidnite1962: And I will hold out hope for some American shows next year!

captmidnite1962: Did any of you read the latest blog Wolfy put up on Mel's page?

chutsler: No, I'll have to check it out....

trapezoid: It is great that Glenn is keepin' this active

captmidnite1962: Yeah....really touching words from Mel..

captmidnite1962: I just hope he does

trapezoid: Yes Capt. The words he wrote were very stirring

captmidnite1962: If he is going to play shows in the winter..hopefully it will be someplace a littlew warmer than Michigan!

David: It'll probably be Spring time, and hopefully all points in between this time and not just the left and right coasts

trapezoid: Hey, Peoria's not to bad in Winter. Don't get the Lake effect snows

captmidnite1962: Something to look forward to David!

trapezoid: Spring sounds a lot better! Cool

captmidnite1962: I finally gopt the remastered Hughes Thrall...a fabulous job!! I was cranking it in the car the other day

trapezoid: Ya can Tell the Sound is much better

captmidnite1962: And in reading the boklets, Rock Candy has also been involved in the UFO remasters as well

captmidnite1962: Yes it is...i have the CD that was released in 1991 or so...it cried for a remaster job...good thing they found that production master in the UK

chutsler: Bill, did you ever pick up the mini-LP Jap CD reissues of the first 3 Trapeze albums? The Sound is astounding compared to the first cd issues!

trapezoid: Pat Thralls' comment about learning Coast to coast from a recording, was wild

captmidnite1962: I missed the bus on thiose..put them on my list and BAM they were out of print!

trapezoid: Meant to say the guitar part!

captmidnite1962: Yeah...he played Ray Gomez's solo note for note..he had never heard the Trapeze version

captmidnite1962: Regarding the Trapeze set..I wonder what they used for saource naterial...given Mel's comment when he appaeared on the chat..that the Trapeze masters were locked in a tool shed and were left to the mercy of nature and mice!

trapezoid: Hope Glenn is Enjoyin' the time off for the next part of tour

trapezoid: Gotta Step out for a minute

David: He's off to Italy later this week and then home again for the RRFC Summer Tour.

chrisloeb: yeah, better late then never...

David: Bye for now Chuck.

chrisloeb: than

trapezoid: Wildhorse says allstar jam. Is that in addition to campers' jam?

captmidnite1962: Chris..have you seen Glenn recently in any of the shows he has played in Europe?

David: Yeah, that'll be all the camp counselors on stage...including GH of course!

chrisloeb: yes I have, Bill. Bratislava. Absolutely wonderful, stunning... great band, great vibes...

trapezoid: See ya chutsler, Have a good one!

David: There's only 2 gigs I think, where they'll all be up there at once. The rest are only if their group of rock campers do well or not on the day!

chrisloeb: Are you going to be at any of the RRFC shows?

captmidnite1962: I wish i could be at the NYC show..but work calls..

trapezoid: Howdy Chris

chrisloeb: Hi trapezoid

David: Orlando on the 15th

trapezoid: Nashville on the 11th

chrisloeb: I'm going on a holiday to Vancouver to visit my brother from Aug 6-21, but as of now I'm not planning to go down to the States to catch one of these shows

chrisloeb: I was planning to see YES on Aug 14, but unfortunately the whole Tour has been cancelled...

trapezoid: How come?

chrisloeb: Jon Anderson - bad health

trapezoid: Sorry 2 hear that

captmidnite1962: Yeah..he has respiratory problems

chrisloeb: look here: http://www.yesworld.com/ywtour-2008-update.html

trapezoid: Here's to wishing Glenn the best of health on tour

David: Yeah, hopefully he won't pick-up any germs like when he got the flu after the recent FUNK tour!

chrisloeb: I was just thinking the same thing. Glenn mentions quite often how thankful he is about his health and keeping his voice and physic fit. Anderson's only a few years older...

trapezoid: Folks' been alot of fun talkin to ya. See ya

chrisloeb: Bye, see you!

captmidnite1962: Take care!

David: OK, thanks for stopping by, talk to you soon.

captmidnite1962: Jon Anderson...man, he'll be 64 in October!

chrisloeb: David - translation of the ROCKS feature is far from ready yet - lots of things to do here. I hope to have it ready before my holiday though...

David: OK, thanks Christian, it's much appreciated.

captmidnite1962: I saw that Oliver Wakeman was going to play keyboards...

chrisloeb: yeah, OW was very disappointed about the cancellation. He's a good friend of Steve Howe.

captmidnite1962: Well..I guess that Steve will busy himself with Asia and his own projects...will Alan White still play with Circa?

captmidnite1962: I wanted to see Circa but I couldn't get the night off..

chrisloeb: Asia is now on hold again until next spring. Wetton/Downes are doing a third Icon album with Dave Kilminster & Pete Riley. White is probably back in Circa

chrisloeb: Coincidentially I ordered the Circa DVD today

captmidnite1962: I did see Frank Marino last week..and met Bart (purplemusic) and his wife..

captmidnite1962: I will have to do the same

chrisloeb: I was just about to ask if you saw any concerts lately - I thoroughly enjoy to read your reviews!

David: Coincidentally, Alan White is part of the RRFC gigs...

captmidnite1962: Next up...King Crimson and Steve Lukather

chrisloeb: You're going to see one of the KC shows!!!!!!!? NYC?

chrisloeb: Tony Levin is back in KC - and Gavin Harrison of Porcupine Tree is now on drums together with Pat Mastelotto. I was lucky to see KC in the double trio format in Budapest back in 1996... a night to remember!

captmidnite1962: I bet it was..there are many recordings of that band live that you can get through DGM Live

captmidnite1962: Yes...at the Nokia Theater in Times Square

chrisloeb: member of the King Crimson Collector's Club since Day 1 ...and subscriber at DGMLive


captmidnite1962: I have downloaded a few of the shows they put up..Glasgow '73 and Asbury Park '74

captmidnite1962: Great suff..and the price is right!

chrisloeb: The 73-74 shows are the best

chrisloeb: Wetton-Bruford are THE killer rhythm section

captmidnite1962: I have a lot of the Collector's Club discs too..

captmidnite1962: Yes they were...
