Hello,
My name is Marc (as you could easily guess from my very original nickname !)
I' 43. I've discovered Troy thanks to Iona back in 95.
I'm a huge fan of Iona and was very sad to learn, a few days ago, that apparently, Troy has left Iona.
It's been hell to find it but in 2001 I finally managed to find thoiugh the Interne,t the first solo album of Troy, which I loved instantly. I loved THe Pursuit ofg Illusion just the same, maybe even more.
I think Troy is not only a great insturmentalist, with incredibly eclectic tastes but also a great composer.
I never had the chance to see him live with any of the bands he has contributed to, nor to meet him. I hope to change this sooner or later.
We just exchanged a couple of e-mails in the past, oh, it was a long time ago, in 2001 and 2002, when he had the time, I guess. I wrote to him to give him the translation of some reviews of albums by Iona and him that I had written. He kindly answered me and offered me his first live album with Midge Ure (of Ultravox fame, who evolved a lot though his solo career), which was really lovely. I love Midge Ure, on the top of that ! So that was a special gift !
I've bought The Madness of Crowds but hadn't the time to properly review it yet. Been so busy this year... that it was  not even funny... Sad
It's a fairly complex album, not "immediate", but I love it, yet.

Apart from Iona and Troy (and Dave Baindridge works with him!) , I love a lot of old masters of the progressive golden era in the 70's, like Pink Floyd, Yes, Jethro Tull (is it prog, really ? I don't give a damn) and Genesis. But from that era I also love Queen, Led Zeppelin and many other bands, hard rock or not. I Also enjoy some more modern progressive or non progressive bands, progressive and symphonic metal, a lot of virtuoso guitar music, classical music, folk, synthesizer music, well, many many  artists.. just have a look at my page on MySpace : you'll understand ! Wink
Thanks for reading ! I'm really happy that this forum was created... That's nice, really.
Marc
