- A nice anecdote from Heepster Brian (USA): "I was a foreign exchange
student in Yoshkar-Ola, Russia, from 2001-2003 and must say, your band is
a legend in that post-apocalyptic provincial city. They never heard a
foreign band play live in 500 years and probably never will again.
Yoshkar-Olians translate Uriah Heep to "shit pile", you might want to
clarify uriah is not fertilizer (urea) next time! Brian's travelogue:

- Tribute to "The Wall" featuring John Wetton:
. A lot of interest is growing over a forthcoming album playing tribute
to Pink Floyd's "The Wall". Billy Sherwood is producing the tribute to
Roger Waters' 1979 masterpiece, for Cleopatra Records. In January, Alan
White recorded drum parts for three pieces: "Hey You", "In the Flesh", and
"Mother". Geoff Downes will be playing on a few tracks, including "Hey
You" and "Mother" - tracks which John Wetton has contributed vocals and
bass to. Wetton donated his performance fee to the UK's National Society
for the Protection of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC). Others involved
include Vinnie Colaiuta (ex-Frank Zappa, ex-Allan Holdsworth), Glenn
Hughes (ex-Deep Purple, ex-Geoff Downes) and Aynsley Dunbar (ex-Frank
Zappa, ex-Jeff Beck Group, ex-Journey). Thanks to Jay "DeepHeep" Pearson
for the info.
- Former BBC Radio One DJ Tommy Vance passed away on Sunday 6th March,
after suffering a stroke. Tommy started out on US radio before moving to
Radio Caroline, but is probably best remembered as the voice of BBC's "Friday
Night Rock Show" which helped boost the popularity of rock music in the
late 70s & early 80s. In the 90s he presented the "Friday Rock Show" on
VH-1. Tommy loved the music of Uriah Heep, and participated in the
Magician's Birthday Party 2001 event as the quiz master, searching for the
World's Biggest Heep Fan. Thanks Tommy for your support. Rest in peace.
