Re: Congratulations for this great initiative
As I say before, I lost all my PAiA FANSiTE on Geocities, maybe I could have a backup but now I'm living 10.000 km away from my parent's house (in another country). It's a pity, because I know that I have those emails from John stored in some place.
I remember a funny story about the EGG, something he and Craig Anderton was very excited with the new prototype and run outside the house to show it to the first person passing and resulting a neighbor that John never talked and the guy was very surprised "being attacked" to test the EGG, from that moment they both started a good relationship as neighbors.
The other story was something about the Proteus, but I can't remember very well, that was something about the many troubles John had in the development stage and when he finally got a very reliable instrument the world was plagued with japanese keyboards with FM, PD, Romplers, samplers, etc giving almost no market space for instruments in kit form.
This is the short version from I could recall from my memory, maybe you (Scott) know this stories (and many others) or Linda, or many others more close to John than me and with better english too...
About the pictures, well I have MANY pictures of PAiA equipment, some mine, some from the net, covering almost all the PAiA product list, and from all the angles. You name it and I could post a picture. Also I have lots of manuals and catalogs... and also some Polyphony mags, like one with a young Scott with the remote keyboard on the cover
