    Appearantly it ‘s a taboo to dream as well.

    Although, for now I have ” a bad feeling” I hope for the best and thus his complete recovery.


    Jon’s situation has not stopped us rambling about anything elsewhere on this place for facts AND opinions.

    So, where’s the line of decency?

    I don’t think 1 meant not well.
    If so I say CUCKOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Another great episode in Purple related history that won’t make it to the STATES. Should be a good one. Hopefully all this outside Purple activity that is going on as of late will generate a large spark of regenerated Purple interest within in the band which will produce an interest in making up for the last 7 years of no-new material. Maybe…..just maybe, they will heed the call of the Fan masses and do a little catching up on lost time over the next couple of years.

    Might be far-fetched, but you have to admit, it makes a lot more sense than what #1 posted…..

    And still no sign of a new DP album…I fear it not going to happen and the guys will tour collectively and individually till they drop.
