Here's the Plan

Postby LTinAspic on Sat Dec 26, 2009 9:18 pm

This past year was a rough one. My father passed away on March 29th. At the time, I was obligated to conduct the interviews for the ProgPower USA festival, but -- as you would imagine -- I wasn't up to it. So I asked friends to help conduct those interviews. I only did half of the PPUSA interviews this year. Even at that, it took four months. (PPUSA is a labor of love for me. That's one of the most well-known and best-run metal fests in the world. And it's great to be associated with those folks.)

This fall, I started back into my screenplays. My wife started back into my King Crimson transcriptions. Then the holidays hit.

Busy, busy, busy.

Thankfully, life is getting back to normal.

Elisabeth is at work transcribing my second interview with John Wetton. After that, she'll start in on some of my interviews with Ian McDonald. Then, maybe, Ian Wallace. Or Mel Collins. Or Keith Tippitt. Or Dik Fraser. I don't know. I'll see what i have and what needs to be transcribed.

My plan is to have one Crimson interview posted per month.

That's the plan, anyway. You know what they say about the best laid plans...

Anyway, I hope you enjoy the three interviews I posted today.

Feel free to leave comments. I'll be back as soon as possible.

Happy New Year! :D
