Check out "soldoutfads" post about TFK on the other forum! Amazing stuff.

Another convert!!

You would be the ideal person to write their biography!
Just imagine, a deluxe hardback, with a mine of info on all members past and present, and tons of colour and black and white photos, along the lines of Armando Galllo's famous Genesis book. (Which I bought when it came out, though mine is only the paperback.)

Go for it Nov! cheesy

I bought my Armando Gallo G-book at a 1980 Hackett gig on Sunset Blvd, Hollywood. He was playing at The Roxy. So far, I've had my copy signed by Hackett, Chester Thompson and Armando Gallo himself.

Yeah, I took the book to Last year's Hackett Acoustic Trio show to have Steve and John both sign it, but they didn't come out for a meet-and-greet after the gig. John Hackett is shown in the book as a kid with Steve and their parents in the biography section, I believe. Who knew, looking at those photos, what lay ahead?

Just finished playing the new Kaipa album, 'Angling Feelings', for the second time.
I have to say it's very good indeed! Classic 'modern' Kaipa, with great instrumentation and strong melodies. I think this band are now in my top ten. And climbing. cheesy

I love this band. grin They're probably tied with Genesis as my favorite.

They have too many albums, though; still trying to collect them all.

They are my second fave band, just behind Genesis, though the gap is narrowing all the time.
I have all the albums, except for the two compilations, which I will rectify soon.
(Good bands can't have too many albums, in my book!) grin

Alright Steph! No, met Steve Ll in Bishops Blaize before gig, was great in there!
Then at Twickenham was walking back up an aisle with Nov and randomly bumped into Steve again which was brill! He had a bunch of wan***s sat behind him at OT apparently, which ruined his gig pretty much! angry
So i really hope he had a better time on Sunday! smiley

Really pleased to meet you. See you at the next Flower Kings gig.
