Dead thread?

Postby nadezalli on Sat Jan 15, 2005 7:26 pm

O.K. I came upon this thread kinda late, but I'm gonna find the DVD first and then the book.

Many bands back then tried to develop too much of a "family" feel; maybe because they lacked it at home?

Paul sings on the 1989/1990 JA Album (Planes), "and his mother didn't want him, and his father was always working . . . so he took off for the skies, I like planes (planes) jet aircraft. etc. etc."

A head shop in the town where I attend college was called "The Family" and at least one of the SF communes was called the family or something similar. Searching for something ideal - maybe?

High or unrealistic expectations are the first step to disappointment.

Then somebody posts a gambling URL - I rest my case. Guess I shouldn't expect that everyone on this group can be trusted like "family" - where's that damn silver dollar I've been saving for a lucky day . . .

JUST kidding - no gambling with the rent money. :evil:

Re-opening this thread :wink:

Anyway, I will receive 'Revolution' in a few weeks.
What is your view on this book?

This is the first JA related book that I ordered (haven't ordered Greg Fenton's one yet) and my expectations are kind of high.
Other musicians like David Crosby are giving their opinions and some the atmosphere of SF in the 60s will be represented.
Reading about that must be a real adventure :)

Received the book and read the first few chapters.
It's a pleasant and overwhelming journey so far....

It all really begins with the story of Marty Balin, in the end meeting Paul Kantner.
There are subjects like 'Planet Earth Rock N' Roll Orchestra' I'm looking forward to read.
Somehow this 'union' of great artists and the outcome of great records, keeps my attention.

Anyway, it is really quiet at this forum...a place I visit now and then.

I'm going to buy this book, or the book by Craig, Take Me to a Circus Tent. Both of them seem like they will be really good. As you read more, let us know how you like it.

I will probably buy Craig's book first, and I will definitely look into Grace's.

No doubt there is not much discussion a lot of the times. For a long time there are no posts. But the spamming problems are being resolved by roman. I know CD and DonRico are frequent flyers on this forum, and so was psychhead (What happened to him?). For those of you who don't visit often or are thinking about dropping out from this forum, what would make you visit more often? The forum is small enough without people leaving! I am not very creative, so I don't really know what I could do to help make this place more interesting, but if there was something I could do, I would, and I know others would too. Tell us what you would like to see here and make you visit.

:) At least we are here...
In 2005 this forum used to be an active place, with alot of different users.
Somehow things changed, but I don't think it has anything to do with the lay out or such things.
Maybe we should work with themes?
An album section (every topic = certain record) and a Jorma corner, Grace Corner etc.

The book is great, read some chapters and had a great time!

First someone complains to whine that there is not enough "activity" on this board for them to stay here...

Like as if, "I will give you guys ONE MORE CHANCE to amuse me, or else I AM OUTTA HERE!!!"

So that is how you feel huh?

SEEEE YA!!! :arrow: :arrow: :arrow:
