I think it's truly wonderful that we have the internet. There are a lot of things wrong with it but it is the best tool ever for staying in touch with people you would certainly have lost touch with by now! When I was a lad I started drawing an imaginary group (some kids had imaginary friends...I had imaginary Bands!) and in my youthful manner I gave them a silly name, 'Mudhens'. No idea why or even what they were supposed to be...only R 'n R.
I'd be interested in knowing if there is a site for musicians from the Big Land...or maybe if there isn't, perhaps I could start posting some. Of course that is something I would have to learn to do...but I'm doing ok so far!
