Shawn I have this theory that you are Mark Kelly posting under a different name...

If I said I was Mark Kelly would any one believe me???

The one great thing about the internet, you never who you are talking too.

I was actually hoping he was really Kenny Rogers and would be funding the whole cd and tour :lol:

It would be cool if Mark posted on here though ...
I know some guys that work for Kenny. One of them goes to church here in the KC area. I don't think Kenny is as loaded as he used to be. I never got to eat at the chicken place. Have you guys?

To think that this whole thing started with a "What if" question, and now it is all coming true.

Well...looking back, some people said this would never happen. Funny.

I did not win the Mega Millions lottery, tho I DID try, and therefore could not fund the Petra "home coming" concert video, with everyone living from their history motivated (paid DARN well) to participate.

That's what I had planned to do with my winnings.

HEHE I too was going to have the homecoming concert and also bring in a gospel choir for "Just Reach Out" and "Love" among others. There was to be a Degarmo and Key tribute, hopefully with Degarmo that also could use the choir for "Destined to Win." Siloam might have made an appearance too.

Which version? There were several. I have personally heard "Sweet Destiny" sung by three different singers. I have a demo version of the song sung by a guy who never even made it onto an actual album.

"Siloam" was basically Brian Lutes (the drummer) and whoever he could gather together at the time, it seemed. Still, I enjoyed the music.

Reviving another ancient thread, just to say: that's a very well-stated analogy with the surf theme.

Maybe you should have been a song writer for the Beach Boys. :lol:
Sing to the tune of "Little Old Lady From Pasadena"...

It's the crusty old timers from Classic Petra; (Go Bobby, go Greggy, go Marky go!)
Got a bunch'a classic tunes and they'ra gonna get'cha'; (Go Louie, go Johnny, crank up and go!)
And parked in a Tennessee car garage, there's a musty ol' dusty ol' tour van by Dodge...;
And everybody's wond'rin which one is cleaner: is it Volz, is it Schlitt, or some other screamer?
They sing real fast and they sing real high, they can hit some high notes that make a hound dog cry;
It's the crusty old timers from Classic Petra... da da da da...;

Thankfully no sharks were jumped during this surfing incident!

I'd go see them just because I never got to actually see that lineup in concert. The only Petra concert I was ever actually able to attend was in the "Midnight Oil" tour. It was excellent, of course.

I have seen Greg X. perform solo, though. So, it would be great to see the old Petra together once again.
One of my biggest wishes is to go to a Petra concert. Even though John's better I'd still see Greg, but that'll never happen, :cry: :cry:

Petra still does occasional shows I think.
