Trail Of Dead - anyone know?

I was looking around recently for some updates on TOD's new album. Didn't know if you guys knew (maybe old news to some of you) but it seems as though the bass player - Neil - has left the band to deal with some substance abuse problems. I went to a fan site to try to get some more info on this and ...

<------- Obviously anything that my avatar Pete has to say.... confrontations: The Filmore East in 1969 - he had to apologize to the audience to cut the set short so they could go spend a night in jail for not leaving the venue (as the building next door was on fire) and assaulting a police officer ...

What about Todd Rundgren? wasn't there an article here about him not too long ago? I don't think I've ever heard anything he's done. I have Something/Anything on vinyl and it's pretty good in the new-bohemian style of the early 1970's sense of the word. Mostly sappy but occasionally rocking, the cu...

Yessongs and even Yesshows to a certain extent are both listenable and accessible albums, and I would also say that on the whole 3/4 of TFTO can become a fun listen if you have the patience to give it 3 or 4 tries (but forget about "The Ancient" - ugh). BTW along the prog-related front, what do you...

I'm so glad that this film is finally getting it's (well-deserved) props. BTW, check out what Roger says during t...
