1) I'm jealous of all the awesome prog shows on the East Coast.

2) TFK backed out of ROSfest because of financial reasons, and now they're playing 3RP? Does that seem a little odd to anyone else?

1) I'm actually more jealous of all the European shows. We get Magma once every 3 or so years, but they play a dozen dates in France every year. Of course, if wishes were horses, all of us would be swimming in horses...

2) I think there are some serious questions that need to be answered, to be honest. And no one is answering them, despite the questions being asked by many people.

2)It may be true, seeing that the Flower Kings aren't that well known therefore they may truly not have been able to afford the travel expenses, but I don't know where the ROSfest takes place.
But TFK play Pittsburgh a lot because their American record label in there, Inside Out Records I think it's called.
Also, they may not have had a drummer at the time of ROSfest.
Maybe you can try contacting TFK somehow and see ... their web site????

There's things that may have come into play with TFK having to cancel their ROSfest performance, and I am thinking some of them really can't come out for a variety of reasons. I may be speaking with Roine in the next few days, and may see what he has to say depending on how the interview goes.

How is it that you can get an interview with Roine that easily?
TFK do have a web site, just Google it, it's pretty cool.
Roine's other projects are cool as well, i.e., TransAtlantic and Tangent. Great musician!

PS. Has Neil Morse of Spock's Beard really gone Jesus Freak?

It's not easy. But I write for several websites, and I have contacts.

And as for Neal, he is born again.
