JON..WE PROG BASSISTS ARE NOT WORTHY..... I was introduced to British Folk music in the Summer 1970: Pentangle, Fairport Convention..and later, Rensaissance...First time I saw Renaissance was at the Atlanta Fox Theater in ['77 ?]. Gentle Giant was one of the warm-ups..a prog fest if ever. A Georgia jazz-rock band was first..can't recall their name; please forgive. I had great seats up front and on Jon's side. At the end of the first song I felt a strange sensation. I had been lifted out of my seat a few inches and released. I felt this a few more times before realized Jon was playing more on Bass pedals than my other prog idol, Squire ever played on a Rick. Throughout the whole concert, Jon played rolling arpeggios on his Rick, while dancing a jig on Bass pedals and singing harmonies with Annie all the while. I haven't been the same since. Second time was at The High Museum; Symphony Hall..no warm up and lower volume. Thanks, Jon. You have been and still remain an inspiration. PS.. Although not named after your band, Atlanta hosts it's annual "Renaissance Festival" in early Summer, as well as a Celtic Festival in Spring at Oglethorpe University. Please come join us. And thanks for responding to us here, on Talkbass.
