A bad day of playing bass is still better than a good day of playing cello.

I saw It's A Beautiful Day on April 14, 1973.  They were the band that followed Genesis (on their first US tour), at the Adelbert Gym on the CWRU campus.

Oh yeah, FF are convinced Ricsters. In America, no one just gives a rat's ass about them. Their last album was with The Sparks, but then the US has disowned those two sons too.
It ain't no country until Dave sez it is!

It's cause they're boring (no but really they're actually rather big here too - they just haven't had much marketting push on this side of the pond for the last 2 records so they're not as talked about, but they have a solid following and those first 2 records at least still get a lot of airplay). I just find them completely uninteresting - not bad, just doesn't do a thing for me.
Robert Plant and Jimmy Page (drummer and bassist of Deep Purple, Jake!)

I'm biased. Anybody who plays with the magnificent Mael Brothers can do no wrong in my eyes and ears.

Kidnapped this from the Gibson forum. 4000BG

Wow. Better than anything I've heard Rush put out lately. Ballsy prog. Do you guys tour?
Contrary to what James Bond says, a good Gibson should be stirred, not shaken.

Hey, thanks guys! We're just playing locally every couple of months. Only done 2 gigs so far in January and May of this year. We have a 4 song EP that this track is on. I think I'm going to do at least one more of these "playthrough" vids. Planning to record 6 more tracks to make a full album, and working on more gigs. There's actually quite a prog scene here in Chicago. We were lucky to be on the bill with District 97 for our second show. They're building a real name for themselves and have toured Europe at least twice now. A friend of mine has a Steve Vai tribute band that we're teaming up with as a double bill. Our stuff is posted in multiple places online if you're interested.
