What band were you in?

He, (Yawny) must make alot of money but

from what I've heard of his music I can't find any that I can remember or want to after he played it. He's quite a showman

but so's a circus clown. Where's the Keith Emersons and Tony Banks on the Boob

tube, them and so many others have the real talent and all we see are him and

Connie Sellecca's Husband John Tesh -" Arg!

You indian?

 

Yup. Half Indian, half Irish. Got the MC-307 set to bagpipes and the "sounds of India" collection for my ASR-10. People often think I am part of the Greek Surprise, though, (or the persian conspiracy) which is why I feel an eternal link with Brother Yanni.

 

There's nothing wrong with saying "Greek surprise, " Fear-My-Potato. It applies to categories other than just the moofy.

 

For example:

 

I was at a Greek restaurant and ordered Turkish coffee. The livid waiter helped me to a serving of Greek Surprise.

 

Just when the Athenian anarchists thought they gots a friend in Socrates, Plato hits em up with Republic. It was a Greek Surprise.

 

and so forth.

 

 

Oh yeah...gotta keep this on topic...uhh...Indians invented the wheel, and then told the babylonians about it, who blablablabla pulleys, blablablabla Greek Surprise, blablablabla calculus, blablbala physics, blablabla Cornell, blablabla Moog, and then you had the synthesizer as we know it today. A really amazing piece, if I do say so myself.

 

I'm currently trying to work out the Oscillator Surprise. (when analog circuitry gets cold and I can't play "Jump" anymore...drat...my favorite synth riff, too...)

Fear-my-pertater-

 

It was actually an East Indian conspiracy all along. We had Europe fooled into thinking yous was us...then they did the dirty work...then they realized they had the wrong guys...then they went to the actual India and taught us English...now we're invading the New World with our IT schooners and Silicon Valley Magellans. What people are you anyway, Potato? albany...hmm...Oneida? Had a friend from NY who was part Seneca, and always felt funny about signing papers...:idea:

 

I haven't seen any mention of Carl Palmer playing with Yanni, but I've definitely heard talk that he is a Yanni-type of drummer. But what in gods' names is that supposed to mean?

HotAsh (late 70's - mid 80's)

Voyager (Mid - late 80's)

Mostly progressive/art rock. How about you?

 

* Back on Track*

Saw Chameleon a couple times. Mostly remember the revolving drum stage. Always wondered what it would be like to play drums (or my Hammond M3) upside down. Where would you set your beer? :D

Hell, i'd play pop music if it meant I could look like Yanni and have the women wagging their stuff at me like they do to him.


By the way Billy - the CD's in the mail - should be there soon.

Merry Christmas, jchas

 

LOL!

 

Got the CD, its really cool, but I had to give the cover photo to my wife...

 

Great mix of well played tunes! Very versatile singing voice! This is the type of project I have always wanted to do if I ever get the time...

Haha we had a conspiracy but it fell apart. {censored}ing beads.

 

I'm Mohawk, so I'm still technically living on the land of my ancestors. Weird stuff happens to me when I'm in the woods around here and from the rumors around the village it happens to Mohawks (there are battle sites all over the hills around). So while I haven't been economically disadvantaged by my Mohawk background, it's definately had an impact on my life :)

Holy resurrection of threads batman!

 

Once my wife asked me to make some compilation CDs from her collection for her. I made the CDs and then wrote names on them so she can remember what is what. They were called "Yawn-ee" and "En-yawn". She was not amused :D
