4:13 Dream Lyrics

Okay, you asked for it, and here's our best effort. The unofficial lyrics for 4:13 Dream. Plenty of mistakes, I'm sure, and plenty of holes still to fill in (especially on It's Over), but it's a very good start, I think. Hope it helps you, as you rock out to the new songs. And as always, a million thanks to V for working with me on this.

Update: The lyrics have been updated with the album versions now. : ) Still have to work on parts of THANWY, and It's Over (an impossible song!).

Snow White lyrics in 4Tour book

We discussed this in the Rome show chat, but I keep forgetting to post it. Some of the lyrics for Real Snow White were printed in the 4Tour book, and we didn't even know it. : ) (Thanks to Rayanne for the reminder)

Trilogy on Blu-Ray!

Is Trilogy coming out on Blu-Ray? CDOn has it listed for release on Jan. 28th, 2009. I've contacted Eagle Rock to ask about it, so maybe we'll have an answer soon. Hope this isn't another retailer error. (Thanks to BillOddity for the tip)

Update: Well that was incredibly quick. Yes, Trilogy will be out on Blu-Ray in Jan. 09! Here's the official reply from Eagle Rock: "Yes it will be released in January of 09. Keep checking our website for more info as it becomes available."

Porl and the BR-9

"The instrument that Porl is playing in SIRENSONG is a GIBSON Electric LAP STEEL GUITAR BR-9 and the last one was manufactured in 1959... Porl's is missing the original knobs; He is using a stand similar to a Keyboard stand that is why maybe some folks in the crowd believed he was playing the Keyboard when in fact he was playing an Electric Lap Steel Guitar. A couple of links with more info about the BR-9: National Music Museum / Guitar Center" (Thanks Daniel)
