Transcript of online chat with Kevin Brandow

Okay, sorry that this transcript isn't complete, but it will at least give a taste for everything that happened. I have removed the messages from a few hecklers who tried to ruin an otherwise-great time. Other than that, this transcript is un-edited.

NetNut_404: not that any of us are anxious :)

Cory1000: he has alot of questions to answer. :-)

Cory1000: so it takes a while

Kevin_Brandow: the record company takes about 5 months to make their plans for marketing

Cory1000: Does it have a name yet?

Guest280: ahhhh.

sue-d: Some of the tunes are from Greg's day... how is it for Louie to re-play those? Is it difficult remembering "past days"?

Kevin_Brandow: i think it is going to be the greatest hits so far.. record

Kevin_Brandow: but you never know, names change

Cory1000: I understand

Cory1000: :)

Kevin_Brandow: louie loves the old stuff! he never misses a trick

NetNut_404: it's always the record companies that slow things down huh?

Kirkman: Kevin... any chance there will be a hidden track.. say maybe something like Lucas McGraw?

Kevin_Brandow: haha, no hidden track

sue-d: I'll bet! I never saw him back then (I first learned of ccm in 1993)

Guest238: shoot! :)

NetNut_404: I was just listening to that song :)

Kirkman: hehehe.. oh well.. I was trying to get Bob to go for that idea earlier this year...

Kevin_Brandow: no, sometimes the studio is booked and we tour a lot too. so schedules slow things down

Kevin_Brandow: where is kirkman from??

Kirkman: I'm from St. Louis... My name is Josh, and we met before the St. Louis concert last year and talked about webpages.. :)

Guest280: is "Rose Colored Stained Glass WIndows" on the album, or are you not supposed to tell?

Guest238: Not to make comparisons, but is there any chance that the new acoustic record will have some of that fast Jars of Clay strumming?

Kevin_Brandow: ok, i remember kirkman now, i knew it was familiar

Kevin_Brandow: lots of fast acoustic stuff for you!!

Guest238: Cool!

** Guest337 enters.

sue-d: Do you recall Sheboygan, WI by any chance? Last October?

Kevin_Brandow: we play rose colored stained windows in concert but it wont be on the record

Kevin_Brandow: yes, i remember you sue

Kevin_Brandow: great cheeze in wisconsin

sue-d: Well, I'm so glad!

Kirkman: no way! you guys are playing that in concert? wow! I hope it's still on the set list in august...

NetNut_404: I love all of petra's songs, but I will always be addicted to the really old stuff

Kirkman: (I think that's when you guys come back to StL..)

sue-d: You bet! Us cheezeheads love our curds and whey!

Kevin_Brandow: the best string cheeze in the world, you just need to get rid of that football team ;o)

NetNut_404: yes!!

NetNut_404: I love that song

sue-d: Why is it that your solo records can't be brought along with Petra?

** Cloudwalker777 enters.

Kirkman: hey cloudwalker! :)

Cory1000: Another zoner!

sacrod: yeah... I was wondering the same thing... John Schlitt never sings his solos on Petra tours either.

Kevin_Brandow: well, john doesnt bring his solo records out, i dont think it would be appropriate

NetNut_404: ugg I can't scroll back far enough...

sacrod: well, Ok

sacrod: BTW, I saw you guys on Friday night... it totally ROCKED!!! =)

sue-d: It sure would be a nice way to get the word out on your solo project, though ..... both of you
