    We are all fans - and don't let anyone tell you that they're better than you.
    hear hear...
    hahahahahahahahahahaha
    It's incredible how words may be misunderstood.
    That _REAL fans_ was a joke for some young Roman fans.
    They tried to organize a meeting couple of months ago and it was a failure in terms of info and material.
    Some of them were with us so they well learnt how to do...

    TJ in this case shows a certain coda de paja! (really don't know how to translate this typical Roman sentence) :-)

    Definitely in agreement with TJ about fans.
    The point about Rolf was that he was a long-time fan who used his love of the band to make more fans, while at the same time using his extensive knowledge to keep a mysterious band's history as accurate as possible.
    And he did all that without being an elitist.
    I wish I could have met him in person.

    I was introduced to the band as a kid when 'Money' got a lot of airplay.

    The first Floyd album I bought was 'A Nice Pair' and with that there was no turning back.

    I'm forever grateful to everyone and anyone who have been nice enough to share some great moments I was not fortunate enough to have lived.

    "A Nice Pair" were my first LPs´too! Strange because ´75 was "Wish You Were Here" and "DSOTM" much more popular, but I wanted to hear or have the early ones first. Maybe that´s the reason why I´m into the early stuff more than anything till today? Was an kind of heavy embossing I believe now....

    And also I´m endless grateful to people like Grolsch and others which kept the tale going till today.
