    Thanks for posting. Gentle Giant has been one of my favorite bands since I saw them live as a last minute, unknown replacement as an opening act for Humble Pie in 1973. I think they never did that well in the U.S. due to the complexities of the songs but they did well in Europe.

    Wow, glad to hear Kerry Minnear is back in action. I'd give these guys my $25 to hear them live.
  5. Never heard of Three Friends. But I love Gentle Giant so I'll have to check this out.
  6. Love me some Gentle Giant! I'd love to see this.

    same with me. just trolling along and found the info. 3 former members of GG. Musically they sound stellar and it's as close as you're going to get to the original band. Mortimer is drumming very fine.

    They are also going to put out some new music. They are in Montreal in September but it's already sold out. They are playing to audiences of only several hundred.

    It never ceases to amaze me that I'm not the only GG fan in America. Been into them since the Free Hand album. Pure greatness. thanks for the link.
