today, at noon, i walked across the street to see asia give a brief acoustic performance at the j & r music store before they sat down to sign copies of their new album, "phoenix." but performance (even "set") was an overstatement. "pair" would have been correct since they did only 2 songs. then they sat down to sign cd's.
as lame as that sounds, it was worth spending my lunch hours to to see these guys. yes was the first group i went to see in concert - way back in 1978. so watching steve howe play guiter was a trip down memory lane. i was also into elp (and wore out the grooves of "brain salad surgery") so the carl palmer connection a bonus.
