Claude, Patrick and Sweet and Sour et al, talk about the MELODY TOTALLY disappearing, I had thought  Williams and myself was the ONLY ONE'S who was hearing this RUBBISH, after the band's start with what they call and introduction, U may hear what they call the MELODY somewhat,the rest is " bram , bram, bam bam bram, paka paka paka paka bram", I'm so extatic that Yo' all are hearing it too, the last good panorama we've heard was in 1976 or 78 with "Do do Ye mah" with Starlift, after that NADA, the MIGHTY TERROR WAS CORRECT, talk about PAN IN DANGER???...

Claude mi' amigo, I beg to differ on this one, the "Piano" was ALLEGEDLY invented in ITALY in 1710 by Christophor "piano" Forti, who really only modify it's ACTION, or the arm where the hammers function, but it was INVENTED in France by "Clavichord" and called the "CLAVIER" the keyboard of a musical instrument or an early keyboard, before Christophor"piano" Forti claimed it as his calling it a "Piano", something like when the "Antiguians" were claiming that they invented pan or, like Brian Copeland claiming Pan Am North Stars BIG TENOR as his first of it's kind Genesis G-pan, I know about the "PIANO" because I tune them as well, but I'm better with the pan as I was Tutored by Williams himself...

CLAUDE MI' AMIGO; U actually believe that it can be seen as a CELEBRATION of SUCCESS, I'm some what disapointed in U Mi' Amigo, for not knowing that it can only benefit the Diaz PT regime, and as for competition, NO FOREIGN BAND is goin a defeat a T&T band in this THEATRICAL GIMMICK UNLESS, the PT regime gonna get more tham 10%, or let's say about 25%, we'll see what happen's by next week...

Problemo Nada Claudeo, things are being taken care of, as the "Pan" technology IS Copyrighted through the U S Library of Congress Washington D.C, licensing a form of permission for the reproduction of the 4ths & 5ths tenor Pan is being implemented, as this is warranted, and U know the U S, they don't play with there TAXES and COPYRIGTH, Uncle Sam want what's HIS...

I am fine thank you and certainly not offended by your response.There is need for a forum like this to give the otherwise voiceless and often frustrated pan lovers an opportunity to air their views and engage in candid conversation, which provide much food for thought. There are many factors that must be considered in this argument and all must be fully explored if the pan movement is ever to get out of its sorry financial state. Of course, our conversation will be merely "ole talk" if the administrators of the pan movement do not take this forum seriously. Blessings!

WST membership won't be interested in my vacation. Bertel taught we knew one another, he will like to meet you, he took very good care of me, I was introduced to his wife and a few WST members. I meet him nearly every night in Phase II pan yard, I went over the stage with Phase II in the semis and in the finalsI left them at 1:30 am on the drag went to St James buy a bake and shark and reach home and watch them perform on TV. Trinidad is such a beautiful place most people are happy, the sun is HOT like hell. I only went into town j"ouvert morning with phase II, we meet Despers and Renegades on Fedrick St that was like old school. Carnival Tuesday I reach as far as Carlos St in Woodbrook and went back home. I went T&T to go Panaroma and did'nt go I stayed with my friends in Phase II and had a good time. I plan on returning Next year maybe you could join me and we will check out T&T.

i agree. it is the politics. We got to stop looking to politicians and find ways we can help ourselves.

Most people don't seem to want change, they just want to argue.
