Whoa...!!! Didn't see that one coming!

Definitely interesting. Jimi struggled on the early material last year (or was it the year before?) so it'll be interesting to see how Dave gets on. But I feel really bad for JP.

Andrew - are he and Jimi still on good terms after Jimi's return to Survivor? I know they were talking about doing more albums together after Crossroads Moment (which I absolutely adore BTW!). My guess is that's being blocked by Frankie/band management as a clash of interests and that, as long as Jimi's with Survivor, we won't hear another full-collaboration with JP (except for the odd songwriting credit as on Kimball/Jamison).

With regards to Jimi and Dave returning to the band... it's gotta be about the money, surely? Especially after that interview when Jimi left the last time, describing Frankie as "demonic" (or words to that effect). Dave's voice isn't what it used to be, but I think they'll be a good support to each other live. Won't be surprised if we don't see Dave at any more World Stage events for a while, either!

Like everyone else, I'd love to see JP return to the band and I don't think it's Survivor without him, but I respect him for following his own path, especially given Frankie's somewhat dubious business practices.
