Hello everybody!  I've been around the forums for a while just lurking...but after seeing Project/Object at the Trocadero in Philadelphia I felt compelled to sign up and join in the fun!<br><br>P/O puts on a great show.  I was just standing there in the audience during the opening act, and someone who looked like Napoleon M. Brock walked by me...so I yelled out "Napoleon!"  Sure enough, it was him...we got to talk for a few minutes and then over came Don Preston!  Wow...it was very cool to meet these folks after years of seeing them in various videos and hearing them on the albums.<br><br>After seeing the pics posted by white_person, I now know who jimmie d is.  In fact, I saw mr. d there, but at the time I didn't know who he was...next time I'll be sure to introduce myself.<br><br>BTW, great pics white_person!  I've downloaded them as a souvenir of the show.<br><br>-greg<br><br><br>

My students had the unbelievable opportunity of opening for these guys in Philly 3/29, and I just think everyone should know that they are all gentlemen as well as geniuses. <br><br>Their interaction with the kids left them floating on air all week.<br><br>Many thanks to all you guys.<br>PG<br><br>ps-Seahag made my amp sound like it never has before, and probably never will again

When was the last time (if ever) this spectacle made it up here to Minnesota?<br>I never even knew about these tours.<br>I will certainly be more aware from now on. <br><br>BTW, I really loved the MP3 of 'Black Barracuda', Jimmie, Thanks!<br>(and GREAT pics, Y/T!)
