    Steve doesn't come to PE much anymore, but he's as busy as ever with Velvet Thunder and with his other writing and editing. He's written the authorized biography of Gordon Giltrap and numerous other books focusing on specific bands. I recently bought his Monty Python guide. He's just had one published on Iron Maiden.

    Thanks for a great laugh at that one. Gotta love Airplane, it still stands up today even with the extreme cheesiness.
    I still quote shit from that movie. Some things were stupid but a lot of the lines/gags are still funny. I think the line I quote the most often is, "I just wanted to say good luck. We're all counting on you." Which comes in handy whenever you want to wish someone good luck. The second sentence, tho, is what throws people. They either laugh or look at you strangely.

    Per anporth and myself wondered about Corbie (Andy) a while back and tracked him down on Twitter, where he was reasonably active, but I just looked again and he has not posted for 3 months, but hopefully all is good in his world.

    I saw a HUGE thread on Hoffman about new prog releases. I opened one of the later pages and most of the recs came from one person. Some guy called...Svetonio!

    Going through some stuff of my dad, I found some cards send to me when my mother died, from Sara and Steve, Kenny Solomon and Rob (Britdude) and Ann (Techgirl).

    That's a special thing, for sure. I remember all of those folks. Kenny was an ardent supporter of ours on his radio show back in the early net radio days.

    I have not seen Kenny in years, but he used to go to ProgDay back in the day and was always a good dude.

    When I was traveling to Miami for business in 2015, I called Ken. He still had the same cell phone no. and email address. We had a drink - in the same bar he'd entertained my wife and me about 10 years earlier He was doing well at that time, and had become a biker dude, with a Harley.

    I would expect that many former members check in from time to time as lurkers, but don't make themselves known. It would be nice if they did, but if they stay out of sight, they probably have their reasons.

    Rob (Britdude) is still out there in FaceBook land, and I keep in touch with him there, he seems to have a chilled family life and still enjoys his music.

    Two former PE regulars have passed, both from cancer. The beloved Uncle Norm from Chicago and the cantankerous Huques from Montreal. RIP gents.

    Found out earlier tonight about losing Uncle Norm to cancer. Hadn't heard anything about him since he had sepsis a few years ago. Had some great times with Norm and greatly saddened I won't see him again.
    RIP my friend.

    Wow, hadn't realized I hadn't seen Norm posting here in ages. I don't think Hugues ever posted on PE3.0

    RIP to both.

    Nope, that one is still alive and well - even if that one also lived in Montreal for two years some almost 50 years ago .
    Hugues was a Québécois proghead enjoying photography and friendly Yves, if I remember well.
    Not sure, I would qualify him or quarrelsome or irascible, but I do remember some mood swings.

    Sad news, indeed. Always got a nice word from Norm when I saw him at ProgDay.
