I guess everyone here remembers where they were or what they were doing when they first heard Asia or saw their video.
Detroit didn't have cable for years and I missed all the MTV videos, but the HOTM video was shown on a basic channel and my 3 year old son and myself danced to it on the living room floor.

I remember hearing Asia after I had heard all respective groups all the members had came from.. Obviously I'm young for the crowd on this msg board. I will be 29 in Nov. but in Chicago I used to listen to Alen Stag on 105.9fm 'Sanctuary'. while I was in High School.. I was a big Beatles fan and knew about a few Rolling Stones songs..Also knew some Elton John as well!!.n  anyways 'Sanctuary'  was an awesome radio show and Alan Stagg introduced me to all of the great Classic r0ck staples in a time where Alternative music and Nirvana, Pearl Jam and other bands at the time I had no interest in!.. I wanted to rock out and find out about this thing they called Rock and Roll... I chuffed some Nugg and rocked out to YES, The Buggles, alot of Led Zepp and then after getting sick of the market main stream Classic rock songs I started to buy albums which lead to me investigate more in all types of Music.. .. This is where I was introduced to ELP, The Who,  Pink Floyd, Aer0smith, Hendrix, you name it, I heard it... I was so000 into YES that I started to want to listen to more Prog Rock. and as I started to learn how to play guitar I always wanted to learn the licks of SH and how he plays such rocking songs but maintains this very classical and yet well trained aspect to his playing.... It wasent sloppy or anything.. After hearing 1st 'Owner Of A Lonely Heart' which TR plays.. I then was introduced to Original AsiA and have been a fan ever since.  I believe I heard Original AsiA for the 1st time when I was 14yrs old.... LOL im such a n00b . I have listened to other songs by AsiA and AstrA is by far my favorite Steve Howeless  AsiA album.... Im also very fortunate to be able to make contact with the voice of AsiA and the strong Bass playing as well as UK's voice and also the voice and bassist of KC for a few years!!. John, I think you web site and guest b00k are by far what the Internet was made for... This place is very very very special and I just want to let the community know that I'm really happy to have met people on here and also be able to speak with you John...basically about your work or anything in a very c00l fashi0wn..its not normal for rock stars to open up as much as you do and I just wanna say thanks its really freakin c00l d000d ... you really make me and I'm sure millions of others very happy phans!! John you r0ck and the music you play dominantes!! peace

yeah Sam, WCKG and the Loop were my stations and they turned me on to some great music. one of my teachers used to turn on XRT in class every now and then, and my music love grew even larger. Alan Stag's name i have not heard in a LOOONG time. i always liked John 'Records' Landecker, Bob Stroud, and Larry Lujack. Jonnie B. get's a mention as well.  giggity giggity
