Shirean: Enters Chat
David: Hello there!
Shirean: Guess I didn't miss anything
David: Not yet!
Shirean: Oh well maybe CTC was enough for them at the moment
David: Yeah, it was a bit of a " phone book", eh!!
Achim: Enters Chat
Achim: Good evening, mates! Hope you're all fine there
David: Hey Achim - welcome...
Shirean: Hi Achim
Achim: David and Shirean, nice to meet you again here in the chat
David: Doing great....
David: Did you get HTP yet?
Achim: There isn't much going on yet, I hope we can gather a few more people later..:-)
Achim: Today I got my copy of HTP!!
Achim: It's sooo great, I can't say that enough ...
David: Yeah, we had a slow start last time around...
David: Excellent - so what's your favourite track so far?
Shirean: David, I'll be back in a few minutes
David: ok-i-doke my love!
Achim: I got it over amazon and they sent it very quickly ..I'm very glad about that
David: Japanese or German edition?
Achim: On the Ledge is the best one ..I would say ..it has the best of everything
Achim: German one, without the bonus track ..
David: You can hear the bonus in the "JukeBox" - Monthly Pick...
David: Can't Stop Rock'n'Roll is my current fave ....
Achim: To my surprise it wasn't that expensive..only 16 Euros ..which is not much at all
Achim: Thank you for telling me, David!
David: That is a good price....you're welcome, keep it to yourself :-)
Achim: Cant sto is also awesome, great riffs and vocals ..
David: Paul Gilbert is actually damn good - I wa surprised !
Achim: Indeed, he did a great job. I was very astonished about Vince di Cola, who is also breathtaking
David: Yes indeed, I was thinking about checking out his solo CD's...
Achim: Beside that, david, I wanna express my appreciation for this website. It's a fantastic one, you're doing a great job, no doubt about that
Achim: That would be an interesting idea....
David: Thanks Achim - we've tried to make it the fan site for everyone to enjoy - we're pleased you enjoy it...
jon l.: Enters Chat
Achim: These days there were some "strange" fans posting a lot of non-sense on Glenn's other website, as you might know. It's so frustrating sometimes, how only a few people can make such a trouble in a forum ...unbelievable ..but that is something one cannot avoid completely, of course
David: You can find some of Vince's stuff here - http://www.tdrsmusic.com/vince.html - there are other pages out there too....
David: Welcome Jon
Achim: Hi Jon
Achim: Thanks David, I will check this out very soon
jon l.: hi
jon l.: just seeing what everyone is talking about
Achim: Believe it or not but right now I have HTP on my headphones and let me tell you ..I turned on the volume VERY loud ...hahaha
David: We were just talking about some of the HTP tracks plus how good Vince DiCola & Paul Gilbert were on the CD...
jon l.: yeah, i was really surprised at how good htp was
Achim: I can't get it out of my CD player ...impossible thing to do ...hahaha
David: Lucky you - it's 12 Noon here in San Francisco and I'm at work !!!!
jon l.: i'm at work, too. taking a break
Achim: I'm so sorry ...hahaha
Achim: It's evening here in Germany right now ..:-)
jon l.: i'm writing from detroit
David: Cool - mid-west, west coast and europe - a real Funk-fest !!!
Achim: Greetings to Detroit! Nice weather there?
jon l.: has anyone heard anything about hughes/thrall II?
jon l.: the weather is a tad chilly for the first day of spring,but not too bad
David: I think we'll be waiting until next year at the earliest ....
David: It's not that it's not "done" - just that PT and GH have so much else going on....
Achim: I guessed that too
David: plus they're waiting for the right "deal" - no point putting it out without good solid backing....
Achim: I admire Glenn a lot for his working pensum everyday, it seems that he is only 30 years old ..amazing
jon l.: too bad, but what can you do?
David: and he sounds like he's 18 when he belts out some of those verses!
David: as you say....amazing!
Achim: Yes, that's very true!
jon l.: yeah, his voice was incredible when i saw him with VOCR last summer
jon l.: his b/vox on toto's 'africa' were sweet.
jon l.: yeah, windsor
Achim: Since Glenn is also a keyboard player, how about replacing Jon Lord in Deep Purple and adding some outstanding backing vocals ...*just kidding*
Pete S: Enters Chat
David: ha ha
Achim: Poor Ian Gillan ...hahaha
jon l.: i like the steve morse purple stuff - purpendicular is a great cd
Achim: Yes indeed, I like it too
Pete S: howdy folks
David: jon - did you see these pix in the Fan Forum??
Achim: He brought a lot new spirit and inspiration into the band
David: Here's the URL... http://fanforum.ghpg.net/2/OpenTopic...4&m=7263027243
Achim: Hi Pete
David: Hey Pete...
Pete S: have'nt got htp yet
Achim: I got it this morning...it's awesome
Achim: I saw Glenn about 7 times in my life, he has always been an outstanding experience for me
Achim: First time, I was about 5 years old when my father brought me to a DP Mark III concert in Germany..and I can still remember that day!
David: Lucky you Achim.....looks like you'll have the pleasure of seeing HTP in Sept/Oct as well!!
jon l.: saw them. cool. i submitted some to the gh site after that windsor gig
Achim: I will do anything to see him then. In 2000 he played in Karlsruhe, just about 20 minutes from my house and I got the chance to talk to him very shortly ..it was great. It was on the ROCK tour
jon l.: he's a good performer
Pete S: a-you lucky person
jon l.: very underrated bass player
David: Pete have you seen live recently also?
Achim: In my opinion, Glenn is at its best when he can perform "live", he has always been ...
Pete S: d-not a chance,waiting for uk tour
Achim: That's very true, Jon. I like his kind of bass playing very much, since I'm also a musician
David: Hopefully then in Sept/Oct for you too - nothing confirmed yet, but sounds likely....
jon l.: i would like to see glenn at a small club show
Pete S: my birthday present sept. 17
jon l.: seeing him with VOCR was cool and the show was good, but....
jon l.: the atmosphere (a horse track) and the whole event was ...
jon l.: kind of like near the end of spinal tap! very un-rock and roll! :-)
Achim: Mee too. A small club, performing some songs that he normally doesn't do ...
David: Yeah, same thing in Maui this past January...solo and a club is best by far...
David: although we had a blast, and Glenn does put on a SHOW - solo or not !!
David: He loves the camera!!
jon l.: yeah, glenn kind of didn't fit in with the rest of VOCR - he rocked a lot more
David: it's almost embarrassing for the others !!
jon l.: at the end when they were leaving, the guys were all piling into a mini-van and calling 'shotgun'!
Pete S: what was the mix like?
David: although Alex Liegterwood really surprised us
Achim: Would love to hear some more funk tunes live ....
jon l.: it was funny to watch the reaction of some of the other guys when glenn sang - they were blown away
jon l.: my friends saw AL at the Sarnia show and said he was really good
jon l.: i was impressed by Bobby Kimball - great voice
Achim: I agree. I heard him on rockforever.com, doing this unplugged session. I'm sure David knows what I mean. He did a song of Stevie Wonder "Blame it on the sun" together with Bobby Kimball ..it was a lot more than just outstanding
jon l.: JLT and the guy from Loverboy sounded ok, but were embarrasing to watch up there
jon l.: blame it on the sun was great
Achim: Even better than the original version ...
jon l.: i woudn't go that far - its hard to top stevie wonder!
Achim: Their voices are indeed very similar, aren't they?
jon l.: yeah, except glenn's voice keeps getting better, while stevie's has not
Achim: Glenn is a great shape, mentally and physically ...better than every before , I would say
Achim: in great shape ....sorry
Achim: my fingers ....:-)
jon l.: yeha, his voice is simply incredible, especially when doesn't pull a Mariah Carey and over do it
Achim: I really hope that the duet with Coverdale on his next album (which is in progress) becomes true
Achim: Glenn was talking about it and David as well
Pete S: burn
Pete S: that'll be good
Achim: By the way, David is in the process to stop smoking these days ..I just read this on his website
jon l.: coverdale lost his voice big time, though, at least the msot recent stuff i heard
Shirean: Hi I'm back
jon l.: he sounded bad on that live version of Burn they did together last year
jon l.: howdy
David: got called away, will be back momentarily.....work, I dunno :-)
Achim: Hi shirean, nice to have you back in the chat
Achim: We already missed you:-)
David: Shirean keep'em company, I'll be back in moment...
Pete S: how do
Achim: No Prob ..David
Shirean: So did you all enjoy CTC
Pete S: yep,thanks
Achim: Yeah, I just read the #48 issue, it's full of interesting news
Pete S: it must take a while to compose
Achim: Great job, Shirean
Shirean: Thanks, that was our second "Biggest" issue to-date!
jon l.: haven't read it yet, but usually enjoy it
Achim: I mentioned that! I got the impression that it will probably never end ...hahaha
Shirean: I don't want to cover old ground here so does everyone have HTP yet
Frank: Enters Chat
Pete S: nope,we've got a lousy record shop here!!!!!!
Achim: I got it this morning ...amazing stuff!
jon l.: yeah, HTP is great
David: I'm back..
David: Hey Frank...welcome..
Shirean: Hey Frank welcome
Pete S: hi frank
Frank: Hello to ALL
Shirean: I agree its great stuff with I was going to Japan in May!
Achim: Hi Frank!
jon l.: hi frank
Shirean: I meant to say "WISH" I was going to Japan in may
David: Hopefully it'll be on DVD for Christmas :-)
Pete S: shame we can't see it online
Frank: Are HTP touring all over Europe or Just UK? Anybody know?
Achim: My wish would be to get a live concert on DVD or VHS anywher, but not a bootleg, but an official release. Would be great
Frank: In the fall that is
Achim: In Oct/Sept. it is most likely they will tour through Europe
David: Think it's both - Germany and UK have been mentioned so far...
Frank: DVD would be great, probably unlikely, but at least a double CD at least I'd settle for
David: but again, nothing confirmed.
Pete S: David,would there be any chance of a chat online with Glenn in the future?
David: It's unlikely....at least not in this format....it would get deluged!! Maybe more of a Q&A format....haven't approached him on it, may be during a quiet time......Summer perhaps....assuming he's not busy....
Pete S: that would be cool
Achim: A great idea
Frank: As a suggestion, you might invite him to drop by unannounced sometime. He might be into that
David: plus it would probably be more appropriate to be on gh.com vs. here - although of course we'd be more than happy to accomodate it :-)
jon l.: you guys do a good job on this site
Achim: will be back in a momet, just trying to catch a sandwich ..:-)
David: he did a online CHAT a couple of years ago at the "Monsters of Rock" in South America - it was short and sweet...
Shirean: I hear ya Achim I'm eating my chicken nuggets
lynchguy: Enters Chat
Shirean: Hi Lynchguy
David: Hey lynchguy....welcome...
Pete S: hi lynch
lynchguy: wat up
lynchguy: where my man glenn!!
Pete S: David,i think you've got the answers anyway
Pete S: all the....
Achim: I'm back ...with a sandwich ..:-)
lynchguy: i saw glenn last year at voodoo lounge gig--anyone there
David: Shirean and I were there - bloody cold that night!!
lynchguy: in new york
David: bummer about the stabbing the night before, put a downer on the evening...
lynchguy: yup--thats the gig
David: Pat Thrall was going to play that night, but because of the short-set there wasn't time....but he did show up!
lynchguy: david & shirean ---backstage
Shirean: What a nice guy!!
lynchguy: i saw thrall there--did you see richie scarlet and bruno
David: sorry, don't know them....
lynchguy: did glenn play black cloud? i remeber medusa
Shirean: I did see Aldo Nova and that Ronndelli dude
Achim: Just listened to some stuff in the Jukebox, awesome stuff! David, where do you get these material?
David: New York set-list... Stormbringer, Muscle & Blood, You Kill Me, Medusa, Coast To Coast, You Are The Music, Your Love Is Alright, Gettin Tighter, You Keep On Moving. Encore: Way Back To The Bone, Burn.
jon l.: i love aldo nova - saw him at a little club in windsor 10 years ago
David: Trades, the net...as far as the rarer stuff...
Achim: Amazing live stuff!
David: Hopefully they'll be less Purple now we have HTP and all his solo material to choose - don't get me wrong, I love it....but I'm sure you understand....
jon l.: i could do without purple
jon l.: i could do without songs like 'coast to coast', too
Achim: I totally agree, David. Glenn do have enough outstanding own material
jon l.: live, i mean - great stuff, but let's hear something new
David: He actually understands our frustration, but the shows are billed as "ex-Deep Purple", so his hand is dealt by the promoters.....
Pete S: In England the Purple stuff goes down great
Shirean: I could do without BURN
jon l.: though, he does switch up the arrangement of coast to coast sometimes, so that makes it more interesting
jon l.: yeah, no more Burn!
David: it sucks, but if that's what sells tickets....
Achim: I guess, it's also hard for Glemm himself to choose the right tracks to play ...
Achim: Glenn ....sorry:-)
jon l.: it was cool to hear 'highball shooter' on BTM, though - you rarely get to hear that tune
David: I must say "Mistreated" with Pat Travers in Maui was absolutely amazing - never heard such intensity from the two of them....
jon l.: yeah, i'm sure he gets sick of being pigeon-holed into that purple thing
David: hopefully you'll see for yourselves when the VH-1 Classic show is broadcast.....
jon l.: i heard the soundcheck for mistreated - it was great to hear glenn sing that
Pete S: as long as he doe'snt do KLF
David: oh come on...that's cool !!
Pete S: ha ha
Achim: I also have a live version of Glenn doing "Mistreated", it is simply GREAT, although it's David's song ...
David: ha ha
Pete S: only kidding
David: how about Ape Quartet....that's differnent...
Achim: Sounds very interesting ...
jon l.: the klf song was pretty cool, too. and th eape quartet sounds interesting
David: it's great that he strectches his wings....again proving he's doesn't approve of the pidgeon-holing....
jon l.: i wish he would record more stuff with kotzen
Achim: Richie Kotzen is very much versatile, in every direction. Love his stuff
Achim: He did a very special version of Burn and Child In Time ...very interesting
Pete S: child in time...awesome!!!!
Pete S: better than gillan?
Shirean: I enjoyed that Purple Medley he did at the Astoria
jon l.: have you heard the new kotzen?
Achim: Well, ...better ...let's say different ...
Pete S: S-what was in the medley?
Achim: Kotzen likes to change the complete arragement from the original song
jon l.: there is a great version of Burn with the Kotzen version of Mr. Big
Frank: I'm back to work, nice chattin' with everyone
Shirean: David your gonna have to help me out on this one I can't remember all bits of Purple tunes he played..
Shirean: Bye Frank
jon l.: and he palyed on the Balck Night Purple tribute with TM stevens
Pete S: farewell frank
jon l.: The new Kotzen is the best cd i have bought in over a year
David: Gettin' Tighter/Mistreated/You Keep on Movin'
Achim: bye, Frank
jon l.: i think kotzen is the best combo of songwriter/singer/musician around now
David: Frank has left the building.... :-)
Achim: A very talented guy, no doubt about that...
Shirean: But Achim's back
David: ditto Lynchguy
Achim: I was there all the time ...fighting with my BIG sandwich ...hahaha
jon l.: what is on glenn's agenda for the rest of 2002, aside from the HTP tour?
Achim: The past few years run so fast for Glenn ....it takes no wonder since he was so busy all the time
David: VCR shows, new solo album (recording of), a couple of hush-hush projects (that's all we know, honest!)
David: Coverdale's new solo album (duet)
David: Jeff Scott Soto new CD
jon l.: a new solo cd - sweet. at least we get some more material, as always.
Pete S: it's all non-stop....great stuff
Achim: Jeff is also a very capable singer
Shirean: Let's hope Hughes-Thrall get completed this year
Achim: He did some great versions of Mistreated in the past
jon l.: though i sometimes hate when he sings one song on someone esle's cd released in japan only!
jon l.: i am compelled to pay the $30 to purchase it and the song is usually nothing spectacular!
David: eBay anyone? ha ha...
jon l.: i've dipped into napster and the like for the past year for a couple songs like that
jon l.: i feel i have paid my dues!
Achim: like Anastacia ... :-)
Pete S: uhhhmmmm
jon l.: i downloaded a couple of her songs after hearing everyone on the gh board mention her - i had never heard of her
David: any good?
Shirean: I hear ya. David and I are convinced we have paid for half of Glenn's JAG
David: the front half !!!
Achim: Anastacia is great, she's very famous in Europe ...
jon l.: she's ok - really haven't given the songs much of a listen, though. pretty funky.
Pete S: the female equivalent of Glenn
dave: Enters Chat
Achim: Yes, I often thought so
David: eBay here I come!!
Achim: Hi Dave
Shirean: Hi Dave
David: Dave - Welcome...
jon l.: my brother rips on me for all my import cds, particularly Glenn's - he says the same thing - hughes is happy he can pay his electric bill since you got his new cd, and stuf like that!
David: wardrobe more like :-)
jon l.: she seems ok, but the songs didn't really stand out to me. i'llgive them another listen.
Pete S: hi dave
David: checkout those shades !!
Achim: Glenn loves Fashion ...:-)
jon l.: not a good pic at all!
Pete S: seventies?
Achim: The hair is a bit "strange" ...hahaha
David: you 'gotta luv it!
jon l.: i like the jacket
jon l.: 70's are cooler than JLT's late 80's though!
jon l.: it was fun chatting, but time to go home.
Achim: The sunglasses look like from the seventies, I wonder what these glasses all did see ...hahaha
Pete S: have you seen lenny kravitz ?
David: JLT did a good job on HTP - I was surprised!
Achim: Bye Jon, see ya
David: And live...he certainly still "has it"
David: bye Jon - next time...
Pete S: farewell jon
jon l.: yep, JLT was very good on HTP, agreed, but he really needs to work on his live look!
jon l.: bye everyone. next time, perhaps.
David: I think the HTP stage show will be very "rock'n'roll".....vs the VCR shows...
Achim: I think Glenn gave Joe a bit of a kick, that's why he sounds so good on HTP. They did inspire each other, I'm very sure of that
David: Definitely, if I was in front of a mic with Glenn, I would definitely want to give my all...
dave: I heard they boys sang together on one mic...pretty cool!!!
David: keep it simple....
David: works every time!
Achim: Yes, it was a kind of "live" atmosphere
Pete S: well at least they had the same sound then
dave: Where was HTP recorded?
Achim: I guess, they were fighting "Give ME the mic" ..." No, it's MINE" ...hahaha
David: Michael Scott's home studio (Producer)....amongst other places...
dave: In LA ?
David: Achim you have the CD playing...what's the booklet say..?!?!?
David: Yes, LA
Achim: give me one minute
Pete S: you are all making me jealous
dave: What do you think of John Sykes influence on "Angel"?
Achim: recorded at Diamond In The Rough, Los Angeles, CA, mixed at Westlake Audio, Hollywood, CA, Mastered at Classic Sound
David: thx Achim...
Achim: Sounds great, very similar to "Is this Love" from Whitesnake
David: I like 'Angel' but I don't see what all the fuss is about with John Sykes - he's good, but that's it.....
dave: Thanks for the info Achim
Achim: Sorry, Pete ..:-):-)
dave: Ya.. I agree David
Pete S: ok...frothing at the mouth ha ha
David: Pete checkout the Jukebox - monthly pick - so you don't feel left out :-)
dave: My favorite is "On the Ledge"
Achim: I like his rhythm guitars more than his solos, to be honest
Pete S: tanx david
Achim: Mine as well, On the Ledge is the perfect combination
Pete S: i listened to the demo clip....it's made the wait worse
Shirean: Luv those keys on that track
David: Can't Stop is my current fave, followed by Sister Midnight - they're all good....
Achim: The burning fingers of Vince Di Cola ..:-)
dave: Vince DiCola is the man
dave: Can't stop" is good but corny lyrics
Achim: Hans Zermuehlen was good, but Vince has more "fire"
David: Yeah, it's a close call - different styles, both are good in my book!
dave: Hans was too Jazz
Achim: Shane Gaalaas did also a great job, great drums!
dave: Killer Drum sound!!!
David: Wish Brian Tichy would get on a GH studio album...amazing drummer...
Achim: .....and good bass lines ...what the hell is that name of that bass player on HTP??? ....hahaha
David: Enters Chat

Fedor: hahahaha :-)
David: you won't live this one down!!

David: A fellow Meniketti fan...
Fedor: what website?
jon l.: www.schreinermusic.com
Fedor: There's a new rockmagazine in Holland, which gave HTP very good rating
Achim: My website ...nothing special ...:-)
Fedor: Enters Chat
Fedor: There's a new rockmagazine in Holland, which gave HTP very good rating
jon l.: no, achim - it is well done. did you do it yourself?
Achim: Yes, I did. Again, thanks a lot
David: What's the magazine, Fedor
jon l.: my brother does our band's site. your's is a bit more professional looking, though
Fedor: I forgot the title... [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif[/img] But will look it up later this week
David: Well, as long as it was a good review, who care, eh!
Fedor: Great website you have Achim. Didn't know you were a musician!
Fedor: David: The new 'Aardschok' will be out soon as well. That's like the Dutch Burrn!
Achim: amazon.de, the german one, there is also a review of HTP and it's a good one
Achim: Thank you, Fedor, I'm really blushing:-):-)
Fedor: Anxious to know what they think of HTP
Fedor: Achim: Wow... a Flying V!
Achim: I will translate it for you next time ...haha
Achim: It's an old one, Gibson, I bought it about 15 years ago
David: The older the better...
Achim: That's it!
Achim: I was about 16 at that time ....
Fedor: Cool. Like a 1952 Goldtop
David: The older instruments are better...
Fedor: David: Is that true? I once heard that Strats made in the early seventies were pretty bad
Achim: Yeah, a bit similar ..:-):-)
Achim: Are you a musician too, Fedor?
Fedor: as well as in the late sixties, just because they used 2nd best wood
Fedor: (because of the Vietnam war)
jon l.: i just had my mid-80's jap strat redone and it sounds great
Achim: I heard the same thing ......
David: I guess each player has their own opinion - I'm no musician, so aren't really qualified, but I'm told that's true...
Fedor: Achim: No, unfortunately not. I pnce wanted to be one.
Achim: When I was younger, I used to play some Squiers, which made some quite good copies of the Fender strats and they were cheaper ..:-)
pete s: Enters Chat
jon l.: never too late to learn, fedor
David: Welcome back Pete...
Fedor: David: you're right. I own a 'Hondo', so what do I know. Hehe
Fedor: Hello Pete
Achim: Hi Pete
jon l.: bad color! hopefully this will be better
Achim: Jon, I agree absolutely. You are never too old to start
jon l.: my first guitar was a hondo!
pete s: greetings once again,that was a rogh storm!
Fedor: Btw, talking about Gibson... I liked the Gibson JJ was playing with during the Russian show(s)
Achim: a Les Paul?
Fedor: Jon: Ah! You are a musician too?
Achim: Glenn should put the pic with JJ and Fedor into the booklet of his next album ...called as "special guest" ..:-):-)
pete s: mines a ibanes
Fedor: Achim: I dunno whether it was a Gibson, but it is a Les Paul model
Fedor: Wow! There are all guitarplayers here!
Shirean: Enters Chat
jon l.: yeah, i've been playing about 15 years
pete s: mainly vocals,use guitar for songwriting
Fedor: Wow. That's great.
Achim: Very cool, Jon!
Fedor: What music do you make Pete?
jon l.: thanks, though i don't play hard rock much anymore
Achim: I just noticed that I forgot to add the www.ghpg.net link into my link section ....will do that ASAP
pete s: heavey rock and on the lighter side....folk
David: thx Achim..
Fedor: Interesting ! And Jon, you're making funk now instead of rock? Just to piss of your fans? (hehe)
jon l.: i wish!
Achim: There are so many interesting music styles, Jon ...I also listen to a lot of other stuff, including "New Country", even some of you will turn out into laughter, but there are some great songs in that genre
jon l.: the songs i write now are more poppy, modern rock, i guess
jon l.: but our band mostly does covers
Fedor: New country?
David: Shania aka 'Def "country" Leppard' Twain... :-)
David: sorry, couldn't resist :-)
Fedor: Good to hear all this. Seems that Glenn is a musicians favourite.
Achim: My biggest love is "Fusion" or jazzrock stuff, a bit similar to what Tommy Bolin once did make or Colosseum II
jon l.: everything from zeppelin to prince to blink 182 to the cure and even run dmc!
pete s: not laughing A,i think rock is getting a little repetative-there are only 12 notes to combine with riff wise
Achim: Yeah, New Country is for instance what Reba McIntyre is doing or Chely Wright or Faith Hill ect.
jon l.: we don't play anything from Glenn or Purple, though
Achim: There are some really great singers
pete s: thats why Glenn's options of rock/soul/funk is a good varasion
Fedor: Ok! Run DMC.. like old skool rap! Walk This Way?
jon l.: yeah, i like the funk and soul stuff better
Achim: We did quite a couple of covers from Glenn/Purple in the past when I was a few years younger
jon l.: Its Tricky - run dmc! its a fun song to play
Fedor: ok. I never heard of New Country nor Reba McIntyre... sounds interesting though
pete s: which ones A?
jon l.: the main thing is that those songs get the girls to dance, so that makes it all worthwhile!
Achim: I highly recommend it to you, you should take a listen ...
Fedor: ok, thanks!
Achim: We did mostly not the typical stuff like "smoke" or "Burn" ect, but some more rare stuff like "You can't do it right", "Sail away" ect. ect.
Fedor: Jon: that's a very important aspect I think.
pete s: if we had a k/board player i would love to do...into the void
jon l.: yeah, it is!
Achim: Maybe the most important aspect ..:-):-):-)
pete s: nice one A
jon l.: yeah, we always put pics of the girls dancing on our website
jon l.: we even had girls dancing to 'ace of spades"! once you get them started...
Achim: The song of Motorhead?
pete s: jon i would'nt mind taking a look at that
Fedor: Well, I'm sorry but I have to go already.
Achim: a great classic tune
