Just thought I'd stop in and introduce myself. My Name is Tony Clayton and obviously I'm a TSO junkie. I live in Tucumcari, New Mexico, recently moved from Roswell, New Mexico. Been a TSO fan from the first record. Just recently getting into Savatage. I've seen TSO in concert 15 years in a row since 2000 in El Paso. Other locations include Las Cruces, Lubbock, Amarillo, Albuquerque, San Antonio, Houston, Las Vegas, Denver and Colorado Springs. Saw all 3 BLN shows. I manage a couple of small radio stations in Tucumcari and been in radio for 23 years. Although I'm not a very good actor, I've presented CEAOS with my narration on the radio almost a dozen times beginning in 1996. Hope to be a regular here and meet some cool people.

Greetings Tony! I do remember you from the Express Board (R.I.P.). For those who don't know me, my name is Dan and I am in NJ (hence the clever nickname used here). I have been a TSO fan since 2006 and usually see them either in Philadelphia and/or North Jersey, though I have traveled to Baltimore, Reading, Hershey and Wilkes-Barre as well.
I also have a pretty popular series of TSO-related interviews that I have been doing the last couple of years, whenever I have the time.
I too plan to be a regular here - hope this board takes off like Caffrey's old board or the TSO Express did. The Facebook TSO group(s) is a little too heavy on photo-ogling and video-spamming - hope this is a spot to talk about real TSO-related news and music.
This is a great idea. Still using my old user name from the old TSE site.
First saw TSO in 2003 on an extra ticket from my neighbor's wife. Just thought it was going to be a interesting way to spend a sleety Sunday afternoon, I had no idea. Been to a minimum of 2 shows a year in Hershey and I've done road trips to D.C. Saw every BLN show at least 4 times.
I'm a big fan and supporter but I'm not one of those that cares about who's fighting with who, what Al's birthday is or what Chris had for dinner last night. And pictures are good, but the posts on the facebook page for Dave are over the edge. Video's are great but I think a VIDEO thread for only video's would be a great idea.
Woohoo... I finally made it in. Registration kept locking up...
Looking forward to TSO (and related) discussions "the way it used to be"!!
p.s. My family & I "discovered" TSO in 2008 and my husband & I have seen them I think 9 times now, including all 3 years of Beethoven (college finals have interrupted the kids' concert goings for the past few years).
My thanks to Dan for sending the link to this board. I was on the Express board until it went belly up. It's nice to see a few familiar names and this will be better than good ol' FB.
I'm jumping in. Thanks to DanfromNJ for sending me a referral.
Came to TSO while trying to see what was up with Savatage around 2001/2. First saw them in '04 (shoulda saw them in '03, but Detroit was new to me that year, and didn't feel like going by myself that year). After moving to Rockford, IL, and after JSS joined West, I started seeing both sides. This was the first time since '04 that I didn't get to see East (c'mon Paul, bring East back to Chicago next year).
BLN is my favorite album and tour.
Looking forward to the discussion again.
May be a good idea if the board creator makes topic heading for "Other Bands and Music" and "Live Audio and Video Trading". Again, just a thought. I know that worked nicely before.
