feel welcome here, I am not peter, nor will I encourge you to think, that he comes around here (OK, one never knows).
But what about joining in for talks on the first topic side?
I have seen a few of your fotos and stuff only by now, but some of the fotos are really interesting in my painter's eyes! Arigato!
And I have been in Japan myself a few times, but do not speak Japanese very well, and reading is even worse, gomenasai.
So, don't be shy and enjoy your stay, we also have a special poem thread over there. You may like to post something there too? I will help you to find it, but others will surely also do on request.
Just feel welcome, please!
(If you happen to catch my avatar with the beard, that is just one of the games amongst us, for fun.)

Thank you for answering my message.
The theme of my blog is to say, "Curiosity more than denial".
And, a scholar who would be toughest did not disregard by the desire and had shown up when the article exceeded 80.
But he has started smiling,
"Unexpectedly, are not you late?"
He finds big "Mystery" the great achievement and through life of Macedonian "Great king Alexander" up to now.
The title "Great king" historically certainly had only "Alexander".
It is while he is setting up a new hypothesis with a simple doubt in the thing.
I was very encouraged.
I pursud psychology at the university.
And, contradiction of a historical fact and a clear lie are exposed learning to ancient myth study,
especially a Greek myth, and it makes it public while entrusting it to poetry.
It cannot be said that there is not danger either, but now you come to appear as my friend who lives in different Nation, and encourage me by your message.
We think about "Secret things" together learning mythology with the songs of P.G,guided by the Lord who created this Space.
Thank you very much.
With my best regard.
Are you English?
Do you vsit my blog?
Can we work by create "Secret World" filled with our own
How do you think aout it?
Please let me know.

thanks for all the informations and yes, I did visit your blog, although surely too briefly. That has nothing to do with you, but with limited time and power onmy side.
I am a german artist and culture manager and researcher, from Berlin, you can look at my profile easily.
At present I am doing several journeys again, while scanning and cleaning my fotos from there. By now, I almost reached Xian again on the silkroad trip (from the west), which also went through Pakistan, thus Alexander has been a theme as well in this. . .I will ry to find the according parts in your blog thus
My interest is also linked with psychology, by the way, plus any mythology in the world, that comes across my paths. If I can help you in something, just let me know.
I might have something fitting within my archives, so have many others here, if you ask.
Joining into a blog, would eat me up now, also, because I should make an own internet presence, plus have been asked to make books with my fotos and stories, that I so far have spread here and there in some internet forums, to test, if there is any interest at all. There is!
By the way, a nice young dutch lady, that also visits here from time to time ("White shadow") made an extra forum, called "secret world", where some of us visit now and then.
But that has nothing to do with your strongly inspired idea and should not discourage you at all.
To see, that PG's work also has some growing seeds in Japan, is very nice to know, BTW!
So, why not taking your time first and tell us your story, or how and what made you connect with Peter over there. That would be interesting to know.
You might know, that Peter at least did have some interests in Japan himself, as for "Snowflake" (google!)and his former samurai(ish) haircut. Yes, it was Japan related, as he told me himself.
In all cases, exchange and compare are the keywords for sure.
You may as well like to try to write to him via Tina, who sends posts further on. Look into her competition page for email adress.
No one can garantee any answer though, but just to let you know.
But don't be shy.
Best wishes from a Japan lover!

I forgot very important thing to tell especially Mi-CHI.
I have been in Geramany a few times, when the wall was
But I remember very well.I loved west Berlyn,which Lou
Reed sing in his own album,like "In Berlyn,by the wall,
you're five foot ten inches tall,it was very nice."
The American music magagin "Rolling Stone" called Lou
that he is go clazy at last!As he just talk very low
in front of the mic,and do not sing to the end of this
concept album.I laughed and laughed like rolling stone.
and Hamburg,yes, I visited the girls staying in the nice
rooms and each room has a big window.
Any way I come to write here again, but I have to tell
my friends that my days of teens were in the dreams of
German Progressive Rock.Klaus Shulz, Tangerin Dream,and
New･･･gomenasai, I may wrong Spell, But when Klaus visited Japan to produce Japanese Band named
"Far East Familly" I have met him as the promoter was
my abcent elder friend's friend.I met Klaus and he
wrote my T-shirts "keep open your mind." when I was just
15years old.I was so happy, you know.
Mr.Phaedrus, your name is very impressive to me as the
"Phaedru" was also make Tangerin Dream very famous in
Japan.I loved "Phaedru" so much,and I was so effected
Now,I have something must to do yet,Will you please send
me e-mail which adress is I write down bellow.
Mr.or Miz Whittie ofcause you are friend of mine already.
So now, Mi-CHI and friends will you visit my brog,too.

Thanks for bumping, Phaedrus + Wittie!
Wow, Byakuya, you have met someone, that I know quite well, Klaus Schulze. . .
My ex husband became his manager, btw. And I have been singing with other parts of the Tangerine surroundings for a while, for example the Ash Ra Temple.
Also via my ex I have met Peter Hammill (van der Graaf Generator), and later on I met Peter Gabriel. . .
To top it all, it all started, because my ex and me once saw an announcement in a german Jazz-magazine, where a tour manager was looked for. He was very unsure, if he could do this, but was a great record collector, basically Jazz those days, but I also switched him on to other music.
However, I very much encouraged him to apply and he really got that job!
After a few Jazzy musicians first, he then got a Charisma package from London, where also VDGG was included.
So the train went on. I did not meet PG via PH actually, that is another story. But then, because of PG, I met PH again, haha.
If you sometimes had PH/VDGG over in Japan last years, thats also, because I connected him with his later concert manager from Japan, who visited one of PH's concert here in Berlin. To give you an idea of the connections, once you mention some names.
There will be quite something to talk about, it seems.
I will use your email, but give me a bit time, please.
Nice to hear from you again and I hope, you are well!!
Best wishes and Sayonara,
(sumimasen, watashi no nihongo josu da nai:-])

PS, I really like your:
"I laughed and laughed like a rolling stone"
Thats priceless (GOOD)! I have to remember this. . .

And if there was a female japanese singer in the mentioned band, then I have met her in London, around Klaus Schulze, btw., who just cooperated with Stomu Yamashita, Steve Winwood etc. etc. for the "Go"-recording (I was invited by them).
There still is a foto from her in my bag, from 1975/6, she was a wonderfulll vivid person, I remember her very well, and how excited Klaus was about our immediate and great understanding . . .
Amazing connections between us all, isn't it?
Byakuya18 March 2008 at 8:59pmPosts: 5 (0 today)Status: offline
Byakuya strike back to write here.
I'm so glad to hear that you are very good friend of
I think he was the member of Tangerin Dream, though he
quit just after recorded their 1st album "Electlic Meditation" was'nt he?
And I'm happy you write you know tsutomu yamasita,
"Go" was the proiject of tsutomu yamashita, and recorded
just 2 albums. I like 1st, you Mi-chi which do you like?
By the way I may have very wrong image about you get mad, I confess so honesty that stop you get so angry,
O,K? I thought you are m ale, till you wrote your ex hus
was the manager of Klaus Shulz.
Is he still active and making nice music I loved?
And I ask you that you heard about one of my most favorite Band UNO which appeared after past away another Klaus who was ex member of New.
I have so many little dreams, when I was middle teen.
And one of my dream is driving a car on the auto bahn,
hearing the album of UNO.And this dream came true when
I visited German for the 1st time.I was 24 years old.
In those days my best friend stayed in west Berlyn,
and he is a diplomat.But I never think he has a tape
recorded UNO's album,(and I am the very person who gave
him that casette tape, as I forgot such kind of things completely.So I was so happy listening to the music in
o.o.I think this is the time to go to bed, my daughter
Then see you next.

Sorry, I missed you. . .
Klaus Schulze was indeed in the tangerine Dream, I do not know the exact story though, not would I call him a very good friend, we just happened to meet several times because of common friends, and later my ex. But we had no problems either. We all just lost contact after a while, because I went other ways.
I only know and have the first Go recording, made in London. And there we also had this woman from the Far East Family around somehow, and she definitely was from them, I remember well, that the name was mentioned, maybe she told me herself.
I did not know their relation to K. Schulze then, because I also had other things going on in London. My ex has already been partner of K.S. then.
As far as I know, they are still working, but I lost trace.
Here is a foto from the recordings of Go (from his homepage):
I have a few more fotos at home.
On the rigth is Michael Shrieve from Santana, Stomu in the back, S. Winwood on the right.
Klaus S. is my age, btw. and obviously still working.
Don't worry about me being female, human would be as right.
I can't figure out what this UNO album is, please enlighten me.
You mean this one??
"UNO includes members from OSANNA for a sophisticated Italian rock with aerial flute and rageous saxophone evoking VAN DER GRAAF or OSANNA and keyboards flights ala KING CRIMSON, and other masters of this quiet and lyrical work".
Ohh, sounds interesting!
Anyhow, I will switch to email for more next, but I hope, some readers also had some fun and surplus informations about our letters.
Its pretty late here now, good night, also to your daughter etc.!
(its almost fullmoon, isn't it?)
