Q & A session review

Posted on September 29, 2008 at 7:15pm 0 Comments

I cannot remember all the questions, so if anyone wants to chime in please

do so.





Favorite Heep song to play live

John said Firefly, the rest said July Morning. I had asked this question of

Lee earlier that day, and he said he gets goose bumps still when he plays

it.



Favorite Heep Story while in the band:

Paul told about the time he went to a bar and met a beautiful woman. He

later found out it was a transvestite bar! Yikes!

Lee,… Continue

Trouble in HV Paradise

Posted on September 29, 2008 at 7:11pm 0 Comments

As previously mentioned by a few folk already, Ken missed the meet and greet on day 1. The next afternoon on day 2 I ran into a list memeber and aksed him when he arrived. He said yseterday morning and I said how come you missed the meet and greet. He said "we did not know about it". I blurted out "that's what Ken Hensley said and people were upset". Not sure how I worded it but can you say Heepster Foot in Mouth disease? Anyhow I then asked him what hotel he was staying at. He said hotel… Continue

Heepvention 2008 The Greatest Show on Earth, Day 3

Day 3 has finally arrived, Saturday night, the Greatest Show on Earth. Yes

the HV that all other HV's write home about.



My day started in the cafe of the hotel, in which I attempted to order

breakfast. I could swear what I pointed out on the menu was Ham, Egg and

Cheese Sandwhich. But what I got was not exactly what I would call in the

USA an Egg McMuffin! It was a really hard stale roll with a lump of cheese,

not a slice. On top of the lump of cheese was a… Continue

Heepvention 2008 The Adventure continues, Day 2

Posted on September 28, 2008 at 7:00pm 0 Comments

What an awesome HV so far! By the time I got to bed it was near 9 am when I woke up. I found some Heepsters at the El Cruce downstairs and had a leisurely breakfast of long flat roll with jelly on it. That seemed to be what everyone was eating so I assumed that was the only item on the menu. It took me several minutes to order a coffee, and what I got was something like what we in the USA call expresso. I am one cranky s.o.b. in the mornings and need my caffeine fix so I accepted the beverage… Continue

Day 1, Sept. 18 2008



This is the full monty now, when it comes to Hv reports. I sent the blurbs

as HV happened, but now for the details for those inclined to read. I met up

with Esa, Ron and Mac at the airport in NY city and had an eventless flight.

After landing, Ron and Mac went one way, Esa and another. What is an Hv

without adventure? Esa and I had difficulty finding car rental office at

the airport, lost an hour there. (I was also later to find out, the… Continue
