This week I undertook the 45 minute drive to Fry's to find a connector cable which it turned out they did not have.

Given that Fragile was one of the first RECORDS I bought from the Record Club of America I felt very, very old.
Dig this Pops.... King CrimsonThe keeper of the city keysPut shutters on the dreams.I wait outside the pilgrims doorWith insufficient schemes.The black queen chantsThe funeral march,The cracked brass bells will ring;To summon back the fire witchTo the court of the crimson king.genre

I saw Asia at Summerfest this year. We didn't stay for the whole thing, it wasn't that good, don't get the wrong idea about me.But each memeber got to play a song from his previous band, so Steve Howe did Long Distance Runaround. With all the freaky guitar work. It was quite good, actually.But Howe looks like he's several months dead. Seriously dude. Get some rest. Have a sandwich.
