New Band... soon

  • I wouldn't bet on an announcement before the new year. I've certainly given up on it. I've followed Glenn since 1973. He's been a huge influence on my music and career. But this year-long protracted 'secrecy' thing is ill-advised, in my opinion. I never heard of Andrew Watt before Glenn flagged him. He may or may not be great, we'll wait and see...but if the new band consists of him, JB and Glenn, then this is a huge amount of expectation put on his shoulders for what I can see as no good reason. Why the secrecy? I don't see how this is different to Glenn working with Chad and Luis Maldonado. The constant teasing is ramping up the fans expectations, and with the best will in the world, I can't see it as anything other than counterproductive. More knowledgeable marketing and management men will probably beg to differ, but I've stopped looking for news now. When the new music's out, we'll see.

    Thanks a lot, Kev Moore, I'm not following Glenn as long as you do but I also don't understand this 'secrecy thing' when there's nothing announced at the time it should be. That's putting fans off instead of getting them more excited. Teasing is okay as long as the cookie is presented in time.

    But if you don't have a cookie (anymore?), you should tell the waiting puppies whose tongues are hanging out with expectation. The harvest would be understanding instead of growing frustration...

  • We've been teased about so many projects especially recently that haven't come to fruition that i'm feeling the same as Kev.

    All teased up with no place to go!!

  • ...direct from Glenn today :thumbup:

  • Better to keep it under wraps and make sure its a go than have another Hughes Travers or Hughes Thrall II where they announce it, get together and then find one side ( Not GH) can't produce the goods.

  • JohnH - I take your point, it's a fair one about the Hughes/Thrall follow-up. I just feel the sheer protracted-ness (is that a word?) of this 'under-wraps' deal is counter-productive, which is a shame. It seems that it's down to 'the lawyers' which doesn't surprise me in the least! -It reminds me of the old joke:

    "What do you call a hundred lawyers at the bottom of the ocean?"

    - "a good start!"

  • Just a swift one from me as Glenn's former PR guy. Sometimes you just can't say. It's as simple as that. So many factors. I am only guessing (and don't have insider info) but I am imagining that Glenn doesn't want to announce something unless it's cut and dried. I doubt very much whether the 'teasing' is some ploy. The fact is that if you announce things too early, it can **** up a whole load of contracts, agreements, goodwill and stuff that might not quite be fully cooked. One thing is for sure, Glenn's heart and soul will be into this new set up and he will be champing at the bit to bring the news to you as fast as he can ;)
