    Oh man, I was hoping you were going to say he's releasing a new studio album after 14 years.

    wow... not too many artists play AZ... COOL!

    well, actually it hit 100 for the first time this year 2 days ago
    Why is it whenever someone mentions an artist that was clearly progressive (yet not the Symph weenie definition of Prog) do certain people feel compelled to snort "thats not Prog" like a whiny 5th grader?

    Hopefully AH hits Detroit again. He typically does so I'll remain optimistic until the full range of dates are published.

    Kind of like not having heard of John Wetton or Phil Manzanera. He gets around.

    I will make that long six-minute trek to downtown (Northampton) on 9/17 to once again (like the 10th time!) see Holdsworth at the Horse (the Iron Horse Muisc Hall).

    I haven't seen Allan since 1984 so to say I'm excited is a major understatement.
