How long have you been a GH fan?

Post by Sam Gamgee » Fri Jul 22, 2005 11:25 pm

We've mostly all shared our first finding out about GH stories, but I thought it would be interesting to have it in a poll to see what kinds of fans are more likely to make it here. I'm kind of curious. :)

(On a side note, don't you just love how we get a new album pretty much every year? ^_^)

Back in the days of "Just Add Water". :eyebrow: I believe it all started around 1985 or so...

If Babb wasn't there - it certainly wasn't Glass Hammer! 8) :lol:
But you have 87 wrong anyway! I met Fred in 86 and he was already living in Chattanooga. That's about the time he let me here the Just Add Water tapes. So you probably go back as a GH fan to 84 - though I insist is wasn't really GH :(

Oh it was really GH baby... :lol:

Glass Hammer will always be the evolution of Just Add Water to me.. I guess it should have been "Just Add Babb" all along.. :D

I didn't have enough poll options for you, Thor. Sorry. :( Or Steve and Fred, either.

1984 is probably accurate...Steve, do you know what year(s) the Six Flags thing was???

You know something, I'm so crap with dates that I can't remember and it was only a couple of years ago :lol:

I do remember that it was Tales of The Great Wars on Delicious Agony that hooked me and I thunk to myself "Excellent stuff, right where's me plastic?"

I've now bought everything GH-related (I think) and Wyzards too! I tend to go for it when something enthuses me (Tolkien for a recent example).

You know Morbius is directly responsible for there being a Glass Hammer.
