"Thanks for the laugh! I'd actually find it very amusing if you were all sitting in retirement homes somewhere, spitting your dentures out in anger when replying to the likes of Khalil Turk!"

...Personally, the denture thing isn't a problem for me (yet), but d@mn, during that whole Khalil/Escape fiasco I sure had a hard time typing with that greasy Ben Gay stuff all over my fingers.




"For real!! I'm 23....which means when I started posting I was around 21 or so.... Why's that surprising?"

...Oh, I don't know, probably because two years ago the average 21 year old was more interested in Chumbawumba (sp.?) and Jewel than The Storm or Harem Scarem.





"Anyway, I also agree with your choices, but I haven't heard Prism, so I was surprised by that one. Isn't that the band Jim Vallance and Bruce Fairbairn were in?? What's it like, is it really old?"

...It is amazing to me how many people south of our border haven't heard this band. Y'all are missing out, ya hear? During the '70s and '80s up here at Santaville, Prism was as much a household name as Foreigner, Styx, Journey, or any of the other AOR giants. I'm not joking. And although they don't sound like any of those bands, their music fits right alongside those other bands. In fact, the compilation I mentioned is only minutely less important in my "Most Important AOR Albums of All Time" list than Journey's g/h compilation. It's just classic, classy, cool AOR. You can't imagine how many good memories I have of slowdancing to the gorgeous ballad "Night to Remember" with cute girls at school dances! I'm getting sweaty palms just thinking about it, LOL! And tracks like "Spaceship Superstar" and "Armageddon" are still regular radio fodder around my neck of the woods on FM stations. I had a friend of mine burn some copies of the compilation I mentioned for me to share with some of my European friends. When I get home I will check to see if I have any extra copies left over. If so, you are getting one for sure. You NEED to hear this band!!!
Cheers yourself, and please pass the All Bran...
