Re: Pino knew....

I don't know.  Why do I get the feeling that he was used simply to record
RGLB & that's all?  Am I psychic?  ;-)

One song!  That's it!

Hey now!

True.  I guess we'll have to wait to find out.  Anybody know if the Simon
& Garfunkel tour has indeed been extended?  Has Greg Lake mentioned any
plans for this summer on his website?

Right.  Like if Pino can't do it.

But, one would have to assume that the band will vary the set list this 
time around, plus include some new material (speculation, I know).  There-
fore, even having Pino on board will take weeks of rehearsals to work on
any new songs & also the Who songs not played on the 2002 tour.  Seems to
me Pino needs to have his Simon & Garfunkel thing wrapped up by late spring
in order to be involved in this summer's Who activities, if there are any.

> I'm thinking Gregg is the pick.

I'm thinking it's Pino; unless he's contractually bound to S&G & can't do
it.  Pete seems to be loyal to his tight group of musicians.  I'll bet Pino
is choice #1.
