Q & A session review

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


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

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

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.

Heepvention 2008 The Adventure begins, Day 1

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
