Yeah, Herr Burkhardt...he and I were quite friendly in the late 80s...well beyond Tull stuff During one visit to berlin, i was able to take him to meet Natascha Ungeheuer and Johannes Schenk (RIP) two old time Kreuzberg serious bohemian artists that he had always admired from afar....their crowd included jurek becker, Fassbiner and another wild old guy named Wolf something...with a radio show...anyway...Gerd was polite and intelllegent, but because he was K-berg 63...and they were all K-berg 36, they were bastards and treated him really badly....he was disillusioned and disappointed...kind ironic to watch gerd deal with his heroes on the other side of the equation of always protecting Ian from fans! Gerd was always nice and fair and generous.....I think he was truly offended by some of the adventures Peggy and martin A got up to...like drinking contests that ended with people in the hospital!

JTull 007: Don't give up Bernie. APP could still happen.... Praying for Little Sister's Immaculate Virginity to be winged away on the bony shoulders of a young horse named George who stole surreptitiously into her geography revision.
