    Not sure Monts, but the billing says "Wishbone Ash-Argus LIVE!"
    Is that going to be outrageous or what?

    EDIT: I think it's gonna be as follows:
    Andy Powell-Guitar, Vocals
    Muddy Manninen-Guitar, Vocals
    Joe Crabtree-Drums
    Bob Skeat-Bass, Vocals

    I saw that lineup a few months ago in St. Pete. Pretty good, I think fans will enjoy it.

    I love wishbone ash and know most of the original lineups on a personal level.
    The current lineup is great too. They're the most underrated band of the seventies and a real band for connoisseurs of rock.

    I was a fan back in the day--perhaps my favorite band in the early 70's--my HS band tackled some of the tunes, which was a pretty big undertaking for a bunch of kids--I actually still remember some of my guitar parts. Saw them at the Whiskey when they were just coming up, and later at larger venues, including a show where they were billed over Kiss! Since Andy Powell is the only original member I'm a bit skeptical about the new lineup, especially since Andy wasn't the main singer originally--that said, they are playing in my hometown and I may go--please keep us posted before I plop down my $$

    Love Wishbone Ash...I might check them out at the M15 in Corona, CA. That's a tiny place, but I had a great time when Schenker came to play a couple of years ago...

    They are playing Atlanta soon and I think they are going to play "Live Dates" in it's entirety. While I'm sure that will be killer, I wish I had seen them last time out when they did "Argus".

    I saw them a few years ago in Nashville at a criminally underattended show. I had to get Andy's autograph on the Argus record jacket that I brought. He got a kick out of that.

    Andy's been the only original member of the lineup for a couple of decades now, and trust me they rock. I've seen the Powell led versions several times. Andy does a very good job covering the vocals; his style wasn't really that far removed from M Turner's anyway. They are still what they always were; great guitar driven prog band. They cover the old stuff well, and the new material fits right in and is pretty strong.
