The Harper story was news to me so I really got a surprise expecting to hear the same history blah blah stuff that he has to do to bring each interviewer up to speed.
It's nice to see Thomas open up like that as he has the paradoxical need to been in the spotlight but also not to give too much away about himself. At the start when the presenter said the new album was 'personal' I didn't agree as none of the tracks (on the surface) came across that way and they seemed more performance then personal. Must listen to Simone again.
Thanks for the repost, Steve. It's terrific that Thomas and Kathleen have been so supportive of Harper during his transition.
The news about Harper was not a complete surprise to Floating City players, as Thomas had referred to him as his son openly in his final email. Also, Thomas alluded to it in his blog post regarding Simone two years ago.
