Re: 1982 - Petra Live in Atlanta

Those are some awesome videos. Seeing Bob and Greg sing "backsliding blues" together was a real treat.

Re: Expression of interest

This NEEDS to happen.

A recorded interview with John Slick would alone be worth the price of admission, imho.

Re: A New Version of "Classic Petra"

It could be some of both. I know for a fact that when Classic Petra got together and was researching a playlist & set list Mark & Greg wanted to include "Not By Sight" but Bob couldn't get the rights to it; that and "Occupy" were written by John Slick... That's a shame. "Not by Sight" is one of my ...

Re: More Power to Ya or Not of this World

That's quite the coincidence, because I've been playing my "not of this world" cd in my car for the past couple of days... I feel that NOTW has not only some of Petra's best songs (thanks, in part, to John Slick's writing & arrangement ability), but also some of Bob's best solo's. Just listen to Pie...

Re: Poll: Come and Join Us (1977)

I gave my vote to "woman don't you know".

A drum solo with outer space sounds thrown in? Genius! 8)

Re: john interview

John posts every single day on fb just to remind us that "hey I'm here". *THIS* is why I love John… Nothing means more to me (as a fan) than for an artist to make those extra, almost insignificant steps to make the fans feel welcome and that they are a part of the artist’s life. Can’t wait for the ...

Also on "praise ye the Lord"... I don't know how good his guitar chops are, but it helps the image! 8)

Re: Lincoln Brewster

Haha! I love his testimony on how he started playing in church! :lol: Anyway, I like how you can tell that his focus isn't on himself, but on praising the Lord... Which I think has kind of taken a backseat nowadays in the "christian music" sector... I saw him 2 years ago at a music festival, he's a ...

Re: Top Ten Songs to have reworked, rocked harder

Sounds good to me...

If I could choose 3, I'd love to see "beat the system" "Right Place" and "this means war" redone as a Rockin' numbers without all the keyboards (as much as I love the originals)... 8)

Re: John as a guest artist???

And Yvonne said there was talk of maybe a future "Classic Petra" project with John Schlitt as a guest artist. They even said they'd talked to his management about it. Kinda funny, because John doesn't HAVE any management. He manages himself, basically, though I always throw in my 2 cents worth, giv...

Hi All! I was reading some comments from the "Classic Petra management" and some fans on the classic petra blog... And Yvonne said there was talk of maybe a future "Classic Petra" project with John Schlitt as a guest artist. They even said they'd talked to his management about it. And I was just cur...

Re: cornerstone

Awesome! Look's like they're really getting confident playing together again!

And I loved watching Greg's mannerisms on "Clean"... Same old Greg. :roll:
I LOVE IT!
