An old friend of mine sent a youtube link about your analysis of the Mellotron.
Thanks a ton, as i don't think I will get any sleep.
I will watch ALL of your videos.
Saturday, I saw the Musical Box in Toronto at our historic Massey Hall.
It was almost 40 years ago exactly, that Genesis did SEBTP on the same stage.
Thank you for your enthusiasm for the band I cherish more than any other!
( well, Maybe ELP is close)
All the best, Tom
Hellay, Tom !
So sorry for the excuse to lose even more sleep (than you are likely getting, already, like all of us ;-) - but, so very pleased you enjoyed my very heartfelt feature on the mighty Mellotron!
Have you, by chance, found my Analysis: BankSynths Vintage Instrument Tour video - with Sound of Contact's keyboardist Dave Kerzner and my collaborator Tom Lord-Alge discussing The Lamb's use of the early BankSynths stuff?
It was such a GREAT time filming them, as they talked (like little kids in a candy shop, I swear! LOL), surrounded by all of the vintage keyboards that Tony Banks used during the Lamb era. It was a GAS! *hearty chuckle, recalling the memory*
As for The Musical Box 's SEBTP Tour - please look above to see the picture that TLA snapped, the other night, in NYC - at the end of Supper's Ready: New Jerusalem. LOVE THAT BLACKLIGHT MAKE-UP, Denis Gagne !!!!!! 8-D
I have no doubt from your enthusiastic e-comment, you had just as good a time seeing the show as Tom and his brother Jeff did!
(I get to see TMB, in Los Angeles, after the New Year - when CalProg brings them out west - to spread their early-Genesis, black-lit magic. Yippeeeee!!!)
Thank you again, for matching our passion...it's great to have your esteemed company (and support).
