    Hi Deet.

    Nice to meet you. I'm also 27. Yes it is a good idea, but what surprises me is that this forum has so many members and you are the ONLY one to reply to this topic. It would be very nice to get to know everybody here and where they're from. Lets hope more replies will pour in.

    Do they really call them "villages" in LA?
    Not towns?

    Just wondering.

    The use of the word "village" is sort of a joke. Where I live would be refered to as a town by most. Yet on the sign as you enter, it says, "Welcome to the Village of Plaucheville." So I call it a village, and I may be the only one who does so. I did not grow up anywhere near here. Peace.

    Hello to everyone. I'm a 16-year-old boy from Finland, which is located in Scandinavia, Northern Europe. I've always been into music, and I got interested in Yellowjackets a half a year ago through my drummer friend.

    I myself like to play various instruments. I'm studying percussion in the local Conservatory, but on spare time I play bass, piano and somewhat guitar. I compose sometimes a song or two on piano. I feel great while playing, it just relaxes me so.

    I like many kinds of music. I try to keep my musical taste range as wide as possible so that I could have an opinion on different genres.

    I sent a message earlier about YJ wearables specifically t-shirts, have the band ever had this type of item available ? I hope that might be something for the future ?

    I am Paul from the UK and chatted with Russ at the gig they did in Birmingham last year, along with Jimmy, and apart from listening to the music of the band it is also a pleasure to have chatted with such nice down to earth people.
    Also of all the CD's I have ordered through the Buzz Store there has never been any problem with either the transaction or the delivery, so well done to you and all those involved.

    I am Bert from the Netherlands. Discovered Yellowjackets in '86-'87 and have been bitten by the YJ bug since then.
    I play some bass in my spare time, I'm not as good as Jimmy though, but then again only a few are...

    Bought Time Squared and Altered State last week, Mint Jam is on order, these were still missing in my collection.
