I don't see an email for you, but I remember your post on Chris Resch, and my cousin David Resch just put this up on Facebook:

Pandemonium lives!

I went down and jammed with my brother Eric and his band "Timeline" on a couple of unrehearsed classics..."Smoke on the Water" and "Paranoid".The audio quality is not the greatest, but if you are a friend, or fan, of ours you might dig the chance to see Eric and I rocking together again. And hey...we still have all our hair and are in reasonably good shape after all these years!...
