And as always, a special hello to the lovely Lady Of The Lake, Kath.

I must behave myself, or I may find myself thrown into said lake.

I hear both Chris Squire and Geddy Lee influences in the bass. Robust.

What's that phrase.... "a bridge too far".

I was not indicating a desire to have one, just an observation. :)

Evening to you all.



No flashback for me, not knowingly having heard of this band before. Have only slowly started to enjoy some Yes - when a few of my peers were I was a blues (& Beatles) bore. Pre war blues preferentially.




Enjoying it so far, the instrumental sections far more than the vocal.

When I bumped into them in a burger bar after the gig I almost asked them if they had ever heard of an English band called Yes :lol: I was only 13 - I didn't know any better. I'm glad I didn't say that though.

Great story - what Tull tour was that then - I saw all the Tull tours - perhaps Starcastle didn't support on all the gigs
