Gentle Giant? What happened? Any Freehand Z out there?
Euhm, they broke up almost 40 years ago.. I guess thats what happened.
The Tower Theater in philadelpia. 1980. I went to see them.. It was fantastic. .Freehand.
The members do anything after?
Derek Shulman occupied a leading A&R position at Atco and signed some very high profile acts.
Kerry Minnear was composing Christian-themed music, the last I heard.
Not sure about the others.
That gives me a start.. Fantastic live.. Unbelievable. . Ty.
In 2009 guitarist Gary Green, original drummer Malcolm Mortimore, and keyboardist Kerry Minnear formed the band Three Friends, which is dedicated to playing Gentle Giant material live. They are the only original Gentle Giant members in the group, with other musicians taking the lead vocals and other instrumental duties. Minnear has since left the band but as of 2016 Green and Mortimore are still with the group. More info here: https://threefriendsmusic.wordpress.com/
Ray Shulman produced the Sugarcubes and others.
Interesting. . I was young then..
So was he.
I nominate the following statement for 'Vague Anecdote Of The Week':
About 20 years ago, a colleague told me that one of the ex-Giant crew was working as an archivist for Worcestershire County Council. I have no idea who or whether this was true.
I recall reading that he signed Bon Jovi to Polygram. Not sure if it's true.
They keep teasing a potential reunion, and there have been a few photos of them (at least Derek, Ray and Kerry Minnear) together recently. But Phil Shulman will be 80 next month, so if anything does happen, don't expect him to be included.
A royal scam without him?
Can u post photos?
This is a screengrab from their Facebook page (not by me).
Fantastic. . Ty.. Ty very much. .
He has been involved in producing music DVDs recently. Some of the Jethro Tull reissues mention him in the credits.
Ty. Songs from the wood
Ty.. all. For being kind enough to show your wealth of knowledge. Ty
He definitely signed Dream Theater to Atco.
All looking pretty good.
Ray also does graphic design now, and did all of the visuals for The Power And The Glory surround sound mix, which are fantastic!
