View Full Version : Govner's Fire

2015-02-24, 11:00 PM
The Govner's home was on fire, toasting most of his possessions, including his master tapes. There is a project on DAD to re-up them, so if you have any feel free to do so, and maybe up them here as well.

I hope he and his family are all right.

Damn, Gov is good people, glad he's ok....if you downloaded any of his seeds that have gone inactive, please reseed them :thumbsup
A Brief Message from "The Govner"....
On the evening of Dec 6th 2014 while I was out to see Patterson Hood play a show at The Bijou I found out immediately after the show that my mobile home was on fire and the end result is that I lost everything I owned.
Thanks to the generosity of my friends I will be ok but I will be starting over. I am in the process of finding as many of my master recordings I have shared over the years so I have a simple request...
if you have downloaded one of my shows I ENCOURAGE you to either upload it in the near future or if you happen to have Dropbox send me a share link to thegovner@<hidden>
As I know that i have some dedicated followers who download a majority of what I upload.
BTW..... I am convinced if I was at home at the time of the fire I would not be talking to you today.
I live on to tape another day! I may be down but I am not out!

Still alive and well! Looking forward to sharing more shows in the future and recovering uploads from the past! If you are unsure if I may have taped a particular show here is a link to my Flickr page for reference..... https://www.flickr.com/photos/on_tour_with_the_govner/sets/

Thanks for all the kind words on the recent uploads and I would also like to thank anybody who may have made a financial contribution after the fire that made the recovery much easier!

As said before and if nothing may come in between (or another member will do so), I'll try to re-upload quite every Metallica-show ever seeded over here, most of the Pantera and some other stuff (The Cult, Metal Church...). Might take a bit time as several shows are on older backup-DVDs to look through first.

Take your time... there is a lot of my stuff out there! I have been given a second chance to chase down all my shows instead of burning with it! There may be a series of unreleased DAT masters surfacing in the future as I had a few hundred that was stored inside an enclosed end table that protected them from the flames (along with the airtight boxes that Maxell data DAT tapes came in!) unfortunately I can't say the same thing for my analog masters.

If nothing else, this is a perfect example how dangerous "accidental hoarding" is. Makes me want to get back to tracking and sharing what I have taped.

I will definitely search and send your way any of the shows you that I have that you don't. I think it's great to see the community have each others' backs like this.

Glad you're doing alright though!
