Who reads this forum ?

Do you read EVERYTHING ?

OR do you skip-over threads
....like gigs that you can not go to
....or technical subjects....or random thoughts ?

How often do you check the forum ?
Is it still fun ?
Do you feel that you have made friends here ?

Is anyone surprised that a music forum could
produce such great friendships ?

love
Gogo
PS...tons of people read this forum and do not post,
which I think is fun too....what the heck, you know....

A-HA !!!!!

I knew it !
Just as I thought !

NOBODY reads this forum....!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

In fact the whole thing is ghosted by Lenny
and translated by a MACHINE !
----------------------------------------------

Really:
Does everyone know that this forum has three
moderators; each one a fan from a different nation.
(And all three met in New York City at the first UKZ concert.)

This is a really modern and TRUE way to run a forum !!!!!!

We can, at our discretion:

Moderator-Functions:
Edit Post
Delete Post
Move Thread
Close this thread
Hide Message (and answers)

And to date, I have not had to do much of anything.
(I deleted some spam once.)

If anything, I try to provoke, more than anything else....

And I do not write to Eddie all the time.
I think that, (like all of us memebers on this forum),
we just have an understanding that IT'S ALL GOOD.

This, just in case anyone wondered how this forum works.

All of that and not one word about snacks.

I don't believe it.

Who kidnapped the real Gogo, and what do we have to do to get him back?

I want to go to at LEAST one of the UK
gigs and bring everyone some delightful smoked salmon !

That is my secret dream.

It is really good.
There is an amazing cannery here.

There are so many varieties !
I just can not get enough !!!!
And around here, it is a gift of high respect.

Dicky and Adrian, I feel like I
cheaped-out on the actual smoked salmon when
you were here. I will make it up.

I thought that the gig on the reserve would produce better
results than cold dead heavy pizza.

I often think of the cheese and tomato pizza you shared with me in NYC. And the banana and that burnt potato thing and all the tea.

Many lovely memories.

Hmmm...maybe this needs a re-think.....



Advantages of playing keyboards for Pink Floyd

1) Easy desk job
2) You get writing credits on the biggest selling albums ever.
3) You get year-long vacations between tours.
4) The drummer seems nice.
6) You get to play your mini-moog in quad.
5) The bass player does all the actual work.
8) You get to see The Beatles record LOVELY RITA.
9) The only people who know who you are are so hard-core
that they would not even believe it if they saw you in Walmart.
9) um........$
10) endless $$


Th sad part about the gig:

1) You have to plow through years of jamming
before Echos Part 1 finally gets written.
2) You don't get to wear anything flashy or wild on stage.
3) You do not get to smile on stage.
4) The other guys in the band are always mad at you.
5) Some journalists are disappointed because they
thought they were interviewing Wakeman.
6) When fans bake nice cookies for you,
chances are they have too much pot in them.
7) You have to do your own laundry because there
is no wardrobe person amongst the army of technicians.
8) When The Soft Machine opened, you thought it said 'Soft Margarine"
and you had already put the toast in.
9) Syd Barrett became way more famous than you and all he did
for years was get his picture taken while taking little bags
of garbage out of him Mom's house.
10) The drummer won't let you drive any of his wild cars.


Ok I change my mind.

RANDOM #54.

You know why so many parrots
today are not very good singers ?

Becuase they are TAUGHT to sing out-of-tune.

I am watching all the you-tube videos
of singing birds, and the keepers are terrible.

There was someone, all super proud, on TV,
with her tropical bird singing ROXANNE
with an interval of 1.25 steps.

HORRIFYING !!!

What ever happened to that pretty bird that sang
I LEFT MY HEAAAAAART IN SAN FRAN SISCOO-O-O-O-O

Well, another approach is to
simply take you favorite exclamation
and over-use it to the point where you
are combining words.

Take....Bizarre

Tell people that you just had tea at the Bizart Gallery.

Or ask a farmer where his Bizarm is located
or ask a soldier if you can join the Bizarmy.

Ask at the canteen for a Chocolate Bizarre....
or ask a biker why he drives a Bizarrely Davidson.

You may not get the answer you are looking for
but you will get a chance to Bizarre-out the common man.

If you see something anything close to
that in Canada,
there is a REALLY good chance that
it was Government Grant money.

There is an EAST COAST MUSIC AWARDS show,
and it is just grant-mania.....every act is a major
grant-pig. And the local "industry" has to promote
itself....or they will stat to not get all those grants.

And the only way to GET a grant is to be IN
with someone who already gets them.

I could not get one to save my life....
aaahhhhh

This may be way off topic,
but we talk about ideals...right ?

This music is based on an ideal,
so why can life not be like that too ?

So I asked one of my bands once....
given one wish,
what would it be ?

musician #1 That everyone treat everyone with the same high respect.
musician #2 Money
musician #3 Peace-of-mind
musician #4 To have his son back
musician #5 friendships like he used to have in high-school

It really is a big question....WHAT DO YOU WANT ?

This is good.

I think we are narrowing-it-down.

hmmm.....Happiness

Sure.
But for whom ?
And at what expense ?
How does out Happiness affect others ?
Happiness NOW on this spaceship or for eternity ?


The KING, having a great time while people suffer.
The ADDICT having a great time while his parents suffer.
The WIFE happy while living another life secretly.
The MERCHANT happy while gas prices go up and up.


Can we somehow BE happy
while making others happy at the same time ?

And would it not be nice as well to have some
emotional, physical and mental stability at the same time ?



I think it all comes down to really bad pizza on the reserve.
balance breeds happiness

and Justice is a bonus too.
eveil does exist.

Good question ! I think if you are constantly stressed it is difficult for those around you to be truly happy. In my own experience a strong character is capable of bringing the mood of a whole house up or down depending on that persons state of mind. I spoke to my friend about this thread last night and asked him "why are you so bloody happy all the time" although he couldn't really answer my theory is that he's never been unhappy and doesn't realise how satisfying it can be !!!!!!! Maybe it's about loving yourself which in turn would enable you to love others therebye achieving some happiness for you and your loved ones. Can I get off the couch now Dr gOgO

Ah very good
thank you.

You can do both.
Of course.
But you have to decide if it all matters or not.

If you play drums for UK,
and people enjoy UK
then you should also have fun doing so.

If you ARE happy
you are more likely to affect others that way.
That is your gift to the world.

Everything you do is important.
It is a good thing to keep a good vibe.

If you drive a truck,
feel the power.

If you walk in the rain,
BE the rain.

HAPPY SUNDAY !


Yesterday I invited eight friends over,
including one who had never held a guitar before.

Everyone else knew the two chords I had taught them
.....so welcome to the Sunday guitar circle !!

I had a fire going and we sat and passed around
eight different 6 and 12-strings as I guided everyone
through one and two-chord songs.

I also worked on groove with bongos, Pink Floyd songs,
old old folk.....lunch, dinner...the whole thing lasted 6-hours.

One foster-child said that it was the best Sunday he had ever had.
I liked it too and can barely wait to move it al to the beach in
several months from now.....

HEY we just rocked a fund-raiser at the chruch basement...
EAT YOUR WAY AROUND THE WORLD.....
10 food booths and about 400 people....hey....I was on a DATE !!!!!

I volunteered by leading the sing-along with loud old folk songs.
Kids danced and sang and I scored tons of leftovers for the kids here.

I not sure what century it is, but suddenly I LIKE IT.

Whatever it takes to keep the vibe alive....I'm IN.

The big grey and brown modular synth is an

on the first UK album (the high twinkle-notes after
the ALASKA intro)....pretty neat.

This is the only arp synth that I know of Eddie using.

Gogo - let me interject, the 'twinkle notes' were a Triadex Muse, given to me by John Entwistle (it was a speeded-up version of the "Light of Day" sequence with Roland Space Echo delay). Trident Studios big ARP 2500 was the main synth used in the electronic section of "Nevermore." The fat sequencer sound during that section and at the very end could only be from a giant modular. The ring modulator hits in that section were CS-80, and the vocal sustain was literally a tape loop on two machines.

I used the smaller ARP 2600 with Zappa, as well as his huge modular Emu and several other keyboards that I will let you guys speculate about.

Emerson, Wakeman, and I (if I may put myself in the same group) all played the Hammond C3. The "C" model ("church") was the exact same instrument as the B3, but with the ornate church-furniture wooden body that went to the ground - as opposed to the legs of the B3. A piece of little-known trivia that I may have mentioned before is that my first Hammond C3, the one that I am pictured playing on the "Air Cut" album (at age 17), was sold to Jon Lord when I joined Roxy Music. It was the famous Deep Purple Hammond from 1973 to this day, now played by my old friend and former London neighbor Don Airey.

You are absolutely right about the Hohner Pianet - used with Fat Grapple, Curved Air, Roxy Music, and the so-called "piano" credit on King Crimson's 'USA' album which was actually the Pianet through a Big-Muff fuzz-box doubling all the power riffs.

We now return to our regularly scheduled Random Thoughts programming.

Very interesting stuff. Wish i knew more about keyboards and the technical stuff ( Im not going to try to make up for that by making jokes about the Big Muff Fuzz box either gOgO !!!) Emily has just told me that her college band are playing Love is the Drug at a gig in a few weeks !!! Shes been trying to get them all into 70s/80s stuff for months now as shes into Steve Harley (Hideaway and Cavaliers in particular) and all the stuff i was listening to in my teens !! I think shes hoping for a masterclass on the road so she can play some UK tunage. gOgO and i played Talking old soldiers by Elton John when we visited the manor and Em is going to play and sing that as her solo piece I cant wait to see that. Im so very proud of her.

What do you mean by "very special"? To my ears that means particularly well-written or edited.

With the UK "Night after Night" tour descending upon us, this seems really off topic, but I stumbled across the UKZ "Radiation" video tonight and had a newfound appreciation for it. Some great original parts by Eddie, and that wonderful soaring guitar part by Alex, and the off-the-charts playing by Marco, are among the highlights.

Look at this, Ben, and you know what I mean:
http://foruli.co.uk/books/bill-bruford-the-autobiography/7

There's even a VERY VERY special edition, which don't come with drumsticks but with a cymbal (see at the bottom of the page). But that's not the one I have ;-)

Yeah, but only 25 were made..... worldwide.
I also have the old paperback, but when this edition was prepared I was very much interested in the two lp's that would come with it. Well, some folks spend their money following Eddie all over the world, I like to spend it buying this kind of wonderful looking stuff.

Which version do you own? I've got the Castle Communications-version from 1990 (CLACD 342) and at 2:57 a short wind-sequence interrups the pianopiece, but after that Eddie starts playing again with those typical runs that remind me of Metamorphosis from Air Cut.

And is that also the end of the whole CD? Maybe the download-program sees the wind as the end of the track and starts a new track from there, but I'm not a download-expert, so maybe I'm talking abacradabra.

I know a guitar player who got to drop by the

thank you, am listening to it now....

I have fourty-three '70s Disco songs
to learn for a gig in a bit.....is really
fun...it is easy to learn these after hearing them
(not by choice) for the last 800 years.
Most are 2 or 3 chord jams, really.....

There is a wedding in Tofino
(West Coast Beach Town)
with a 7-piece band called WUNDERBREAD.....and why not, hey (!?!?)

Gigs like that are invisible on the face of the world,
and a ton of fun, with the right people.

I've decided to sign up for drumming lessons, with my son's teacher. He had an open slot after my son's lessons, and I'll start in two weeks. I believe I share my son's sense of rhythm but I've never had the opportunity as a kid to take drum lessons. My son's teacher was familiar with Gary Husband, by the way.

Bautiful lines but quite expensive (Starting at £75,000).

It also comes in orange.

Poor Larry.
needs to pay more a ten shun to (Jules Verne) or someone with a bit more time travel under said person's belt.
Then when you travel from east to west across the date line you're not 24 hours early for your onward!!
when I heard this I almost spilt me beer laffffing.

Sorry Larry. get Adrian or EJ or even me to arrange your travel.
I owe you a large one. took me a long time to stop laffing.

best of luck

some coincidences are strange.
Dennis had said to me that Larry would have to leave the show early to get to Tokyo for his flight which was about midnight, and he'd already had one rail faux pas, going north steada south or something.
The stupid old bloke from Billingham said "Ah... an international "time traveller" he'll get home the day before he left Narita"
as we now see his onward was booked without this fundamental truth being understood!
Had 24 hours to kill in LA.
Could have had another Gig in Kawasaki instead.
Dennis is checking his itinerary as we speak (or type really) but he's made the journey before and shouldn't make the same cup of tea

My 9 year old son and I are on vacation right now at the new Legoland Florida and we just got out of seeing Lego Racers 4D, a Star Wars inspired computer animated short scored by Eddie. Eddie's orchestral soundtrack is marvelous--with rhythms, themes, harmonies and sounds that match the characters and scenes so exquisitely well. If you are ever in a Legoland park, you must see this. It's my second time hearing the soundtrack, after watching it in Legoland California a few years ago. My son, who is now a bonafide fan after seeing the Baltimore UK show, and is now composing music on Noteflight.com, said to me "Eddie Jobson is awesome!" as we exited the theater.

Canada Day a TON of fun....very festive and happy,
with everyone dressed-up....if you see some TV footage
it is always funny.

We are a very young nation (one hundred and thirty-something years)
and probably the best little (big) buddy for the USA.

Today we are in Vernon B.C......much like California, HOT,
with a soundcheck soon.... in an hour for the
FUNTASTIC MUSIC FESTIVAL...Lou Gramm played last
night and it rained rained rained....so I hear....I was in DaysLand.

I am so happy that I got to hear UK again, and realize
once again how technical and smooth of a player Eddie is, as opposed
to the big bag of mush that I make every gig out here...haha

It is all good....there is room for everything....
in fact it is FUNTASTIC !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So, everyone have fun...

love

HAPPY (belated) 4th of July
everyone
(South of the Border..)

Eddie was telling us that he saw the fireworks in Battery
Park (right ?) New York City 1976 of the huge Bicentennial.

I loved the American Bicentennial.
It was fun; all the music and great TV and cultural stuff that summer.
And, in my opinion, the best issue of MAD magazine ever published.

I can see how Eddie fell in Love with the USA that year.
(I figure)......as many English people are attracted to the openness
and the energy of that big emerging Nation.

Members of Elton Johns band....and John Lennon....plenty of other British musicians settled into the states, hey.....Jack Landcaster...Keith Emerson...
the Supertramp guy...

I always thought that was interesting, as opposed to how many musicians
move from California to England, and stay there.

Ronnie James Dio was born in Portsmouth. New Hampshire (USA). His family moved to Cortland, New York early in his life. Dio considered himself a New Yorker. I do not think he even lived in England at any point in his life even though he played with Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow and Black Sabbath.

For those into music trivia, Jobson auditioned to play keyboards with Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow in 1977, but was not selected for the job by Blackmore.

Um ... José ... the key to Gogo's posts can be found in this recent quote:

gogo wrote:

> I can not say for sure
> if anything I say is accurate or not

Ok, so Ronnie James Dio was not born in England; and if you examine Gogo's list, there are clearly other instances where he has played fast-and-loose with quantifiable data. For example, it's a well-documented fact that neither Honky or Fonky were born in England ... I believe they are from Scotland, or possibly Pakistan ... Dicky and/or Adrian would know for certain, being that they are much more dedicated fans than I.

Gogo thrives on list-making ... it's about process and pleasure over accuracy. Sit back and enjoy.

There has been much debate on this forum as to the actual Birthplace
((((((and subsequent whereabouts)))))))
of the ever-famous FONKY.



I have found this much (quotes) on various Wiki Pages,
all lacking citations:




"They say I peaked at the BiCentennial...."

" I was so tired of the press calling me
The Funky Fonz, that I moved
to (Post Omitted)...."

"Yeah it was me who sang on all those Bee Gees albums"

"If only I had spelt my name with a U..."

"You know Adrian
(A HONKY tribute artist with a net worth of less than $150 Million)
...now THAT cat can dance !"

"...call me "the preeminent-pre-90s audio draftsmen"
....I delivered the goods, and now the shop is closed."

As I have mentioned elsewhere, that particular piece of Wikipedia trivia, enpdlip, conveys an inaccurate portrait of events. I was not there to "audition" for Rainbow because I wanted to be in the band (I had repeatedly insisted I did not want to be in the band); it was, in fact, the members of Rainbow and their management that were trying hard to convince both me and Ritchie that I should join the band, and that if we just played together it would seal the deal (it did not). I do know that I handled a slightly awkward situation with a lot less rudeness than Mr. Blackmore, who - due to that single encounter - remains near the top of my list of the most obnoxious people I have met in this business.

A more relevant piece of trivia regarding Ronnie James Dio is that he and I were brief friends around the time we recorded the semi-hit "Love is All" together. In stark contrast, Ronnie will always remain among the nicest people I have met in this business.

Holdsworth moved to Southern California sometime after the release of his album IOU in the early-mid 1980s. He even worked at a bicycle shop in the area for a while.

I believe his connection to pubs is a beer pump for kegs he invented to obtain a creamy head similar to the ales of his home country.

Oh I love when RANDOM THOUGHTS rules the forum !

1) I like the Rainbow story, and it is up for
"longest sentence" award once we reinstate the EJ FORUM AWARDS.

I guess Richie was feeling a bit threatened by the young talented guy.
Total '70s attitude scene, hey.

My friend Dave Stone took the keyboard gig with Rainbow about that
time...he has permanent hearing damage just from the stint he did.

All he ever could say was just how LOUD it was (and what exactly
was hidden in some of those road cases.)

2) I like the idea of the virtuoso prog bicycle shop, (if it was a good vibe).

I insist that it is a good thing for serious musicians to have at
least one completely unrelated interest....one that is hands-on.

3) I had a friend who lived next door to Dio in the '80s and said
that he was the nicest and most fun guy. For sure.

4) The idea of being a nice guy in the bizz, is a good idea.

I really only hang out with Canadian musicians, (cos I don't get out
much), but everyone is really decent and friendly.

From Bryan Adams, April Wine, the Nazareths....everyone is fun, always.
Fred Turner from BTO is probably the nicest guy in rock music.
Randy Bachman is nice, but in his own world.

The American guys are cool too...Mark Farner, the Tubes...
but FONKY......he is dangerous.

OK enough randoms...

Missing everyone....have been run off of
these new groovy boots.

I am at the tip of NewFoundland
and there is a factory here
that turns ice burgs into drinking water.

I had some today, 10 000 year old pure water
(tastes like the stuff in my hometown !)
and they had some still-frozen chunks backstage as well.

The Polar Bears travel on the Bergs,
funny cos they could end up anywhere hey...

They had an iceburg the size of Manhattan this year,
but in my opinion Manhattan had a better
post war abstract expressionist movement.

Anyway, just saying HI
and be careful cos it could end up on youtube....

Hahaha
well,
it is OK
other than I have to drink fake booze out of a big horn.

You know on the road
it goes from having tons of people LOUD
.....to DEAD quiet....
(other than Peter Scheerer's
fantastic new album....)

And on CNN they are all surprised because
a whale beat-up a guy in a swimming pool.

And this BRAND new Hotel has no elevator
(because there is ONE inspector guy in the entire province
and not available until the middle of next week)
.....and one front desk guy carrying over 100 tourists luggage
up three flights of stairs...

And what do I do to help ?
Well I read the Eddie Jobson Forum !!!

PEACE ALL !
love

.....and speaking of The Fletcher Memorial Home....

I was not even going to mention this,
but wow have a lot of people ever packed-it-in, hey.

Brutal.

Way-late at night, well-early into the day
(I think this is called staying-up way-too late)
..........I youtube-search for neat music that I have
not listened to for a long time, and then maybe a wiki-search
to read what the players and singers are up to now.

And then I see the word WAS....you know....
Richard Tee was a pianist, studio musician, singer and arranger....
and then the keyboard player for Lynyrd Skynyrd...
and then the Charlie Daniels Band....TAZ....for Petes sakes.

This happened last summer too,
when I was looking-up a bunch of prog
and psychedelic guys....half of everyone "was".....

OK I will admit that I am not exactly a NEWS-hound....
and that some of these guys have been gone for ten or twenty years.....
but what is a few decades between friends, and fans...hey.

Meanwhile, everyone, stop packing-it-in, please.
and thank you.

love

Interesting read in the Financial Times

"The day the music died" ...

In a rare interview, pro rock legend Robert Fripp speaks about standing up to the music industry.

A real shame that another great musician has to focus on protecting his output at the cost of his career. I know he comes across as awkward and exacting but my abiding memory is of him crying for fully 30 minutes on his wife Toyah's episode of This is your life. He seemed devoted to her.

Sorry I disappeared for a bit there...many wild summer of gigs
going on....(it is not over yet)...and I had some SERIOUS bums living at
GOGO MANOR that I had to get rid of...unbelievable how ridiculous some people can be...bums, I tell you. For real.

(Student residents are arriving now...and I have an idea how to
walk away from that project all together....)

I miss everyone and wish to rejoin the party soon.

I am sure that there is a hidden meaning and blessing
in all of it.....maybe not for everyone though...the real
bums that I had to eject from GOGO MANOR
are pretty-much junk at this point...
not much more I can do there....

Some people see love and kindness as some
type of weakness.

Pretty stupid outlook.....cos it just makes us STRONGER.

My Dad started smoking when he was six.
1931....

Unlce Rolie got him started.
(who, by 1974 had lost both legs due to bad circulation)....

Word was that "nobody ever thought that there was anything wrong with it
at the time"....well they also drove logging trucks with no brakes....ok ?

My Dad had smoked 3 packs a day (chain-smoking)...and thenquit after 30 years.

THEN he turned to fish and chips.

For myself....I shunned smoking and went straight for the fish and chips.

This is a good day.. Just got this in the house:

Korg M1 (not working properly - need repairs), Korg M1R, Korg 01/W, Emu Proteus FX, Emu Proteus Classic Keys, Frontline X-8 mixer, Sony DSP M7 sound processor - and a proper oldschool ARP Pro Soloist!!!

The ARP is a loan, the rest I got for free. The EMU's, mixer and M1R is mounted in a rack system.

I got an M1 from before.. I will use this one as spares.. or maybe fix it up and see if my dad wants it :)

Happy :D

Korg M1 (not working properly - need repairs),

--- I don't think there is still one on planet Earth that works
Properly.....the buttons on the front are the first things to go....



Korg M1R,

----- NEAT Blue Oyster Cult had a new Korg that looked exaclty like an
'80s M1


Korg 01/W,


--- what the heck is that ?

Emu Proteus FX,


---fun ! have never tried that/....

Emu Proteus Classic Keys,

---total fun....they got the Mellotron sounds from Dave Kean, and then sent him a unit and he sent it back to them cos he said it was a piece of $&%*.....I liked it.

Frontline X-8 mixer, Sony DSP M7 sound processor -

--- let's go out and gig with this stuff !!!

and a proper old school ARP Pro Soloist!!!

---YEAH !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
does the after touch work ????
Mine is rebuilt, bullet-proof....oh plane loading

The ARP is in mint condition.. Just calibrated and adjusted to perfection.
I just had to tune it as it was a bit too high, but now its 100% perfect :)

More info on the 01/W here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Korg_01/W
Its a proper workstation like the M1.. but with some different sounds.
Mine needs a new memory battery, but I will fix that asap.
Eddie used one for a demo on this record: http://www.progarchives.com/album.asp?id=4655 along with many other great synthguys.

The Emu Proteus FX is really cool.. Lee Ritenour late 80/early 90's sounds on it.. hehe
Short demo here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3yjgSoal1Yc


Need to try out everything tomorrow... Just had a go on the 01/W and Pro Soloist tonight.

The link below is a 1991 promo video Korg did for the 01/W:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NCWnm98gcgo

I have the premier issue of Korg's Proview magazine from the fall of 1992 where they have a one page interview of Jobson where he talks about his contribution to The Best Of The O1/W CD. There are many other artists from the O1/W CD that are interviewed on the magazine and Keith Emerson is featured on the cover. If there is interest I could make a scan of the interview and post as a JPG.

I think I have that issue somewhere.

I can try to scan it soon if I find it. I remember the interviewer asking Eddie about the complex time signatures in his work and Eddie replying that he didn't think in those terms, that he was simply trying to convey emotion in his music. Or something like that. I've never forgotten this. It seems to be the kind of thing that separates great progressive musicians such as Eddie from other progressive musicians whose music comes off to me as mechanistic, contrived, and cold.

I walked around yesterday and the yards

I hope that everyone is snug and happy today.
