For some reason I expected this to happen. ???

Too bad though... I really liked his playing!
What is he up to now?

John Jowitt back is of course not a problem! *horns*

Almost the 'classical' Visitor line-up there. With just one surname difference.


All the best to Ian!!! :'(

I hope we'll hear more from him in the future!

Uh  :o

Don't really know how to react, here :)
A crying and a laughing eye? That's a German phrase, translated directly, which appropriately describes what I'm feeling...
Arriving somewhere, but not here....

I hear you there Peter, exactly my thought. Liked Ian's playing, but JJ is quite a personality on stage and his bass playing is excellent 8).

Wow, didn't see that one coming.

Though If I did, John I would be my first choice, well ... if I had anything to say about it that is. ;)

I second all that  :)

So you've come of age
And so you want to meet God
Sure you can
He's right here next to me

I was surprised to see Ian Salmon playing in the Yogi Lang Band this weekend at the I0 Pages Festival in De Boerderij, Zoetermeer.  Dont know how permanent that is, but there he was anyway.

That's the first thing I thought about.

Love it! What a fine bunch they are. Lol

The Fury

It's been a while and we still haven't heard anything about why Ian left.

Does anybody know more about this?
Why do you laugh at my hopeless appeal for your mercy?

I was thinking the same.

I hope the current line up will stay then, but we never know.
I thought they already had a nice group: Rob, Mick, Clive, Ian & John.
But now Rob left and Ian, luckily they found new people in Paul Manzi & John Jowitt
Well the last one isn't new he was there in the visitor era...

Good luck the new team!!!
