Like Ted, my plastic has taken a hell of a beating (quote from the Norwegian, I think, soccer coach when they beat england way back when - football fans will, I'm sure, correct me) in the last 18months to 2 years. And here's me 41 summers long. God bless the internet, that's all I can say.

Its funny, I almost forgot what my first GH purchase was. Turns out it was On to Evermore. But I didn't become a fan till "Chronomotree". It wasn't any dislike of "Evermore", its just that the other album is the one that really clicked with me. It helped having a lead character named after and inspired by me! :roll: OK, I lied about the last part... Good thing, I'm slightly more normal than he is!
I do remember reading about the band back in some old Progression issues, with mentions of the performance at Progscape(?), I think. But it took me a while to check GH out. Something about there being narration of "Journey of..." that kind of turned me off. In fact I didn't buy that album until 2004! Much better than I expected, or another way of saying it, not as bad as I expected! :oops: Nah, I really do enjoy the first half of the CD, and it showed promise of great things to come. One Lex Rex came out, that was it, I was now a GH fan for life.
And now for something completly different...

who are they? Hey, is this a fansite cleverly disguised as a Prog enthusiasts' discussion forum??

But, really, i'd only heard rumours of such an artist before following a link here from some C-Prog (C=Christian) board. I think Steve Babb, (is he a bandmate?), had posted a link in there. And i was rescued. :cuckoo:

Yes, Steve is one of the Main Dudes, and comes here regularly as the MayorofLongview. (take a minute to look at ghfan.net bios if you want a more detailed scoop)

Around two years, I believe.
