    I just joined a progressive rock band named Hysterical Society. After being together 8 years without a line-up change, their bassist up and quit without looking back. This is a dream come true for me though, and I'm more excited about this band than any other band I've played in!

    Check out some of the videos which feature the old bassist of course, but soon enough there will be some with me and I'll be quite pleased to share them when the time comes!

    Sounds good! Gotta add capes though. It just ain't prog if you aren't wearing a cape.

    I wasn't joking. Well, maybe a little.

    Seriously serious, though, it's cool to hear that Mahavishnu influence. I could stand for a little less of the Alice In Chains influence, though, and more of a Genesis vibe. Genesis always had really interesting things going on at each level from the vocal melody to the drums. And, of course, you can't go wrong channeling a little (or a lot of) Gentle Giant. Those guys were the masters.

    But I digress. Anyway, the next time you guys have a release, send me a copy; I'll review the heck out of that bad boy. But you have to become British citizens and start wearing capes, first. Only cape wearing Brits can make prog rock. Don't blame the messenger; it wan't my idea to include those as prerequisites.

    I really dig the vibe of the band. Having the capes would make the band even more awesome.

    Congrats and have fun!

    Cool stuff! With the light settings on stage the guitar player looks like Mike Rutherford back in the 70's, the bass player (you) reminds me of Tony Levin (could not see if you have a mustache), and you sound a bit like Levin ;)

    Thanks a lot gentlemen! I thought some of you might enjoy this.


    That is actually the old bassist,lol. I just joined the band, so there aren't any videos with me...yet. :smug:

    The guitarist and keyboardist are about 35 years old. The drummer is 53. I'm 29, so I'm going to be the "young buck" in the band,lol. I'm glad I'm on par with their abilities though. :bassist: -Luke
