Newbie here

Post by runningshoes_66 »

Hi everyone,

I'm from the Niagara Falls area.

I found the forum while looking for information on Syd Barrett's visit to Abbey Road during the WYWH sessions.

I've been a fan of The boys since The Wall came out. A kid on our school bus had a radio and ABINTW pt. 1 was the huge hit at the time, so we heard it pretty much every day. Since then it's been a love affair. I saw them in '87 in Toronto. It was great show, but I've always considered the post Water's era more of a Gilmour solo project than anything else.

I saw and met Roger during the Pro's And Con's tour in '84 and have since seen him on every tour except Dark Side. I saw David once in '84 at Shea's Theatre in Buffalo, NY.

Looking forward to getting to know everyone

Well snifferdog, I thank you, Keith and another fellow in one of the threads for welcoming me, but I'm not apt to hang around a forum where only three people bothered to even say hello.

I think it might have been something I said. I'm not usually one to toot my own horn, but I thought this might make for interesting conversation. I'll probably hang about and read once in awhile because there is some interesting stuff here and some members obviously know a lot about my favourite band, but I highly doubt I'll be participating.

Well, we can't hang around 24/7, ya know!
Couldn't pay the internet-connection without those daily eight-hour routines, I've been doing all my life - but welcome to the machine my new impatient friend!
:D

I must be an ill-mannered forum member. I think I just barged in and started posting, whether anyone wanted to read my drivel or not :lol:

You make me laugh, Misty.
I did the same thing. Barged in like a complete lout, got in everyone's face, took my shoes off and put my feet on the table. As you can imagine, I was the belle of the ball.

Stephen!!

Are you still here??


Beat it!!
