I feel I should address something. In the issue of “Classic Rock Presents Prog” they so kindly gave Presto three pages!! In this article I was talking about my plans to move to the UK and setting up “camp” Presto. That ended up not happening, and here’s why.
I got my house shut down and made arrangements to start making the move, and headed across the pond. After being there for about three days it became painfully obvious that there was NO WAY that I was going to be able to afford to relocate there. Due to the fact the the U.S. dollar is next to worthless at this time, my money was only going half as far as I needed it to. I ended up staying for the length of time my room was booked, drank a lot of great beer, and then came back stateside. I will just have to get Presto “launched” from here. So there you have it, just in case anybody was wondering what was up with us moving to the UK.
It’s something I would still very much love to do one day. I really dig the UK and the music scene for prog is very healthy there at the moment. But until things change with the global economy, we will have to settle for playing there as soon as we can, and as often as we can. Hell, I’d settle for just being able to find a drummer and playing a show anywhere!
I’ll rant about that later.
Thanks for reading!
