Of the many musical excesses of the Eighties, this one I find particularly wonderful and amusing. Steve Howe, particularly as he goes into his solo at about the three minute mark, is probably one of the greatest and most creative guitarists to do such cheesy claptrap. But he does it so well. When 99% of other guitarists would do power chords, Howe does arpeggios.

Yes and Asia will share a stage this July in KC. Will have to see it...Howe playing guitar for both. To give you a perspective on the contrast...

hahaha!... no, I just needed a sweet picture of the oberon ale. I assume its html- but i perceive there is a deeper significance.

Not as such...actually its classic C/C++ stuff. Throughout school I had to type way too many includes.

Yessir, got my ridiculously overpriced tickets. No Jon Anderson, but the stand-in sounds pretty decent. Actually quite surprisingly like him.
