The band is still going, LGM. In fact, they're trying very hard to become a Pink Floyd clone band and do covers. I still go to the occasional
practice just for the halibut.
I prefer to join in when they're not trying too hard to do Floyd and just jamming for fun and entertainment. My material usually consists of
different themes I've written before and then I 'wing' the words into the melody.
My biggest claim to fame was a tribute to the B52 (not the band, the BUFF) during the Viet Nam conflict.
"Bombing hills into valleys and valleys into hills"
Another piece which has been saved for an eventual release is the song 'Azariah', which was captured on a fairly cool sound track with me playing
drums. Ya never know...I could someday be famous.
(not holding my breath, though)
The practices are still happening in the same place, but the pics on the site are like 10 years ago and the spot is now a full-fledged recording
BTW...the lead guitarist, Dr Floyd, is also an amazing amateur astronomer who has made a bit of a name for himself. A little scan through the website
provides some excellent pics he took as well as the observatory he built on his roof (which is now enlarged and upgraded.
