Right now it's just playing live, and only the one show.
"Well (laughs), a few years back," continues Ben, "actually, before our last reunion event in 2009, Monty and I had corresponded, and he's been sending me some songs, and I'd been putting some lyrics on them, just sending them back and forth, or he would send me something that already had lyrics, and I'd sing some vocals and send them back to him. So we were corresponding, but you know, it's tough to do the long distance thing; it's tougher than you think, and I'm not against the idea. I'd love to do it. It's just hard to get four guys that are hundreds of miles apart-at least one of the guys of the four-together, to do something like that. But I'm not saying it won't happen. I'm just saying it's difficult."
OK, well what about taking the show on the road?
"Well, I know for myself, I've got lots of time where I can go out and do shows, which I would love to do. But everybody has different commitments, because over the years, it's kind of turned into something that is, at least for me, this kind of dream that maybe we'll get back together and maybe we'll something. But maybe has become more difficult as the years go by, because everybody's got commitments and stuff like that. Again, not saying it won't happen, I'm just saying it's harder the farther we get away from what we were at that time. That's why shows like this, if there's energy and excitement, people... because even right now, I'm kind of getting pumped about the fact that we've got a lot of people on Facebook-which, not everybody is on Facebook-but there's a lot of people on Facebook and they're getting excited about this particular show, and they're going, 'Hey, come on, record something, hey, c'mon, play a show in... you need to come to Europe, you need to come to somewhere' (laughs). Back in the day when we had record companies behind us helping us to stay out there, it was easier to do, but we have yet to have promoters and booking agents and stuff like that are willing to go, 'I'll get out there and book some shows for you.' But one-offs here and there are definitely not out of the question."
