  1. Hello and thanks in advance for any help here, my fellow Zep fans. I'm curious if anyone knows where John Paul Jones currently lives. I've been told somewhere in California, but can't verify this. Does anyone know? ;^)

  3. Bassist Billy Greer is hardly new; he's been with Kansas for nearly 25 years, and his vocal contributions to the group's live shows are immense. Kansas is one of my favorite bands of all time, and without doubt one of the best bands to come out of the American prog rock scene. ;^)
  4. Yeah...more often than not, I saw this group referred to as Kingdom Clone. And there was a reason for that, lol... ;^)
  5. "I know I'm threadshitting at this point, but another board had this...totally cosmic timing: straight dope bbs QUOTE (WordMan) The scene: a top recording studio in London in the early 80's. My buddy is getting one of his first big engineering assignments - Asia's second album. His job? Setting up and doing the engineering prep for the legendary Carl Palmer, drummer for ELP, Asia, etc. My friend showed up for work hours early and used all of that time tuning Carl's kit, placing mic's, checking all the effects associated with each mic - you name it. And since Carl has a kit the size of, well, a huge freakin' drum kit, my friend had to crawl underneath a few rack toms to get in and out, so this was a physical, hectic, stressful situation for our first-time engineer. But it was worth it because he was doing it for the legendary Carl Palmer. After all this, the Producer (my buddy's boss on the project) comes in, sees all the excruciating work my friend has done on this, his first job, and kind of snickers to himself, but at the time my buddy doesn't put 2 + 2 together. They both remain up in the control booth, finalizing settings for that day's recording. Later, the legendary Carl Palmer comes in, blithely gets behind the kit (not sure how he did it blithely, but my friend assures me he looked smooth), picks up the sticks and....proceeds to rip off a drum fill that sounds like a cat falling into a stack of cookware. My friend looks up at his Producer, who says something along the lines of "well, that pretty much shatters your fantasies, don'it?" Apparently it was common knowledge that Carl couldn't keep proper time and was all about the fills -- which couldn't sound great if you can't keep time!- nice time to tell my friend! Weeks later in the session, my buddy was playing the kit to check a mic set-up he had changed and Geoff Downes and Steve Howe both came in and tried offer my buddy the job playing drums since they found Palmer's timekeeping so bad. I doubt they were serious, but it was a way to get under the legendary Carl Palmer's skin - and there was so much infighting that they couldn't pass up the chance..." Sorry...having seen Palmer numerous times over the years, I'm calling absolute bullsh!t on this fairy tale, lol. ;^)
