I suppose it seems a bit silly for me to state the following. After all, who I am–a goofy, middle-aged American professor and historian?
Still, when PROG issue 74 showed up in my post box today, I was both thrilled and proud. Yes, the proud part is the silliness. Does Jerry Ewing need me to be proud of him? Well, I am.
After everything PROG has gone through over the past three months, how great is it that I get issue 74 only days after it’s released. Under the previous company, it took about a month for each issue to get here (in the states). In fact, issue 73 just showed up this past weekend. Now, 74 is already here.
And, it looks gorgeous. Jethro Tull, Tim Bowness, The Mute Gods, ARW, Dream Theater, and Blackfield are all covered. And, best of all, Greg Spawton shows up on page 10 and Andy Tillison and Matt Cohen on page 11. Call me a very happy fanboy.
Congratulations, Jerry! You are our leader. No question.
