    RIP Dead lyricist, Net pioneer- tribute by Derek Pyle
    "John Perry Barlow leaves behind a spirit that wraps around the world. Footprints in the Wyoming snow, lyrics unpublished and forgotten, flames on the playa, deep web source code, laughter in the wings of Air Force One."

    Renaissance interview by Robin Cook
    "I think the band progressed naturally as different people came in and out. And I think we all learned from each other until the band came together in '73 when Miles Copeland, he was managing us at the time, and he fired everyone in the band except for
    me and John Tout, and kept Michael Dunford on as a writer. And he said "Right, we're going to build a new band around you.""

    Julliard band meets Greek composer Manos Hadjidakis by Hayim Kobi
    "It may be his love of both the American musical scene and classical music that brought him in 1968 into an Atlantic recording studio in New York to watch a recording session by a curious rock band whose members were versatile in playing rock and
    classical instruments. Enter the New York Rock & Roll Ensemble."
