Behave yourself!

I had exactly this conversation with Geoff Downes at an Asia message board about a year ago. To be fair to him he was both amusing and accepting of the flak but his justification of Asia ran along the lines of "the production's great" and "look at all the people we get to play". Believe me koogles, if you had enough money, Al Pitrelli would play in your back garden for you ... while you were out. I agree Vinny Burns (ex-Ultravox) is both a person who plays music for money (nothing to be ashamed of - I'd rather do that than what I do - but it means that there's not necessarily any kudos to having him on your project), and if you step back from the confines of this board he is hardly a major figure in world music. Palmer & Howe are old buddies who haven't done anything important for 15? years... Wetton's got a glorious voice maybe that's why Payne has trouble getting acceptance - I'm no card carrying flag waving Asia fan, just for me the quality of singing and songs is so obviously different now..
