  1. That's some cool family history, Eric! Best wishes to your family and your father on his move. In keeping with the topic, the Liberace Foundation donated the use of Liberace's "Dancing Waters" piano to Styx for a recent run of shows at The Venetian Theater in Vegas:
  2. Not the best picture, but shows my Quik-Lok QL-746 with QLX-3 second tier:
  3. Have you tried contacting them through their website, https://aspenpittmandesigns.com?
  4. Even worse was Johnson dissing them by waiting until they were en route to Detroit to interview him to tell them, "Eh, no thanks."
  5. I hope so. I mean, he did take the Falcons to the Super Bowl... ...where they blew a 28-3 lead.
  6. The team formerly known as the Redskins hiring Dan Quinn as head coach I'm conflicted on this one: As a lifelong Redskins fan, it's hard to be excited about someone who comes over from Dallas. Quinn had a mediocre record as HC with the Falcons. How much of that was his fault versus the organization's? But he then turned the Cowgirls defense into an upper tier unit. How much of that was due to his influence versus the talent on the roster? Losing Quinn might set Dallas's defense back. Or maybe not. Most of the commentators that I respect on Sirius NFL Radio have nothing but good things to say about Quinn. I guess I'll just have to wait and see how it goes, but I don't think this was a hire that is going to fire up the fanbase.
  7. That one surprised me. Atlanta chose a guy who’s 21-38 as a head coach in TB and Atlanta over the other names out there.
  8. According to CBS Sports, he told the team he’ll be back in 2024: https://www.cbssports.com/nfl/news/mike-tomlin-tells-steelers-that-speculation-about-his-future-was-unfounded-hell-return-in-2024-per-report/
  9. I'm hoping he and Hurney are shown the door.
  10. I've been fairly lucky, I guess. My main band doesn't bring our own PA or soundman, so we're at the mercy of the house sound guys. We've encountered a few problem children over the years, but most of them have been very knowledgeable and capable. In fact, I have worked with several of the more experienced ones to help balance my patches and setups. As for rig size, I'm also lucky in that the guys in the band actually like it when I bring more than my usual two-keyboard rig. If we're on a larger stage and I only bring two, someone will ask where's the rest of my stuff. In fact, I was recently thinking about how I might cover our show using just one keyboard rig, and our bass player told me it might be possible but it just wouldn't look right.
  11. Boomer here. All of my keyboards use IEC cables, but I suppose I could picture owning a keyboard that uses an external power supply if everything else about it was optimal. But it seems that many of the keyboards from the major manufacturers that use an external PS also cut corners in other ways, such as scaled down features, an inferior keybed, plastic chassis, etc. For example, compare the Roland Jupiter-80 to the Jupiter-50, Fantom series to the Fantom-0 series, or Yamaha Montage to the MODX series. So while I might look past the external PS, other factors turn me off.
  12. Roland: Fantom 8 Jupiter-80 VK-88 (You didn't say they had to be current boards. 😉
  13. My biggest problem with cellphone videos being posted on social media is that invariably the person shooting the video and/or those around them are singing so loudly and out of tune that it makes us sound out of tune as well (which we sometimes are, but still).
  14. Veering off topic here, but what song is it that he's playing from about 2:08 to 2:20? I know I've heard it, but I haven't had enough coffee yet...
  15. The Fairlight all over Jane Child's "Don't Wanna Fall in Love"
