- The Liverpool Stadium's website also contains info on a previous Uriah Heep gig: a 1973 ticket
stub, a 1973 tour programme and also reviews from fans. There is even a story included of a few
guys who came in as so-called Heep roadies and played "The Wizard" on Mick Box's guitar! Check it out here:
http://www.liverpoolstadium-rockyears.com/id16.html .

- Thanks to the great work by Heepster Konstantinos Takos from Greece lots of live dates
from Heep's past were included in our website listing. Konstantinos speak: "At last it's
over! I have no other dates for the time being. This project lasted 7 months and I humbly
contributed 313 dates (not bad I guess!). I think that the Hensley era giglists are almost
complete now and give a very clear picture of the heavy touring schedule Heep had in the
70's". His latest adds were from 1975, but in any way the complete list is available here:
http://www.uriah-heep.com/newa/giglists.php . If you find any dates missing or wrong, please let us know!

- Heep-related news from several web sources posted all the time:

- Trivia time #1: a Uriah Heep sandwich??? Yes, that's "Uriah's Heep", check it out here:
http://www.uriah-heep.com/newa/sandwich.php .

- Trivia time #2! On November 25th on the "Top Gear" motoring TV programme in the UK, the intro to "Traveller in Time" was used twice! The piece was a tongue in cheek "celebration" of the 40th anniversary of the formation of the British Leyland motor group (it no longer exists) where
the presenters each purchased a classic BL car from the 70's to show how "well made" they were
and performed in a number of challenges. Thanks to Pete Wharton for the info.

- Trivia time #3: Jason Morris speaks Heep: Jason Morris - Heep Fan and U.S. Judo Olympic Team 2008 Coach for the Beijing, China games updates us on the progress of his training:
