The Silver Surfer

"If sacred places are spared the ravages of war... then make all places sacred. And if the holy people are to be kept harmless from war... then make all peoples holy."

The Silver Surfer


My Quest for "The Holy Grail" began at the tender age of 14, after hearing about "The Tune" in my school playground. Some of my friends had gone to the legendary "Jazzifunk Club" at the Electric Ballroom...

Lyle Mays

Thank you Lyle for your truly outstanding gift of music, for which we are so grateful to have received. Your playing was so exquisite and heartfelt, but what really touched me was your honesty and sincerity as a musician which was expressed in every note that you played with an almost otherworldly form of sensitivity.

Your compositions took the listener to the most incredulous places that resided deep within those uncharted realms of one's imagination. For me personally, the 'Mars (Close To Home)' is my favourite song of yours, for it is a magical masterpiece of joy and wonder, and I am sure that after an exhilarating 'Ascent', that you did find your way home...

With deepest respect and gratitude to you Lyle, and may you soar in peace upon your next adventure.

Don Baaska

Dear Don, what can I say?

They're truly no words to fully express my gratitude for your sublime gift of
"Get Off The Ground (The Bottom End)" and our precious friendship too.

We would always talk about different realms and dimensions and I know that you're journeying towards one of those incredulous places now.

I look forward to hanging out with you and having a few drinks on the
'Planet Of The Seven Moons', for now it's your time to get off the ground, go fly high as a kite and when you look down upon the ground you'll know you belong up there.

Have the most exquisite and exhilarating transition dear friend...

Light, love and gratitude to you always Don "The Don".
