07.00 - Just an advance notice that during the early hours of Wednesday 27th November, KasimInfo.com will be unavailable. This is due to some directory re-structuring which can not be done while the site remains open. In the unlikely event of some major news being announced during that period (e.g. a $1,000,000 bid on the lyrics of Set Me Free, Quid Pro Quo going platinum or the dates of a 20 date UK stadium tour for Kasim being released), it will be posted on KasimInfo.co.uk. Please note that this will NOT be "the biggest overhaul the site has ever seen" but purely some directory re-structuring, although the front page MAY change.........

14.30 - A note about KasimInfo.com
If you've saved any bookmarks for this site, they may change over the next few weeks. I recently purchased the domain name KasimInfo.co.uk which will share some parts of this site. Don't fret that KasimInfo will become all British and stuffy(!) as it's purely for financial reasons - currently the site costs $400 a year to host on the present server (and it's increasing in size all the time) whereas if it's hosted where my business sites are, then some of that can be saved. Unfortunately that server is not as reliable as the one that hosts KasimInfo.com so only non-vital items will be hosted there. The main page to the site will still be www.KasimInfo.com and there is no e-mail associated with KasimInfo.co.uk.
04.30 - A brief synopsis of Kasim Sulton's online chat last night has been added to the site. Click here to read it.
04.15 - The News section of the site has been updated.
15.00 - The News section of the site has been updated.
14.30 - The Gigs section of the site has been updated.
18.00 - There's quite a heated debate going on at the messageboard attached to KasimSulton.com about Kasim's unannounced performance in Philadelphia this morning.
16.15 - According to a post on the messageboard attached to KasimSulton.com, apparently Kasim Sulton performed live at the Rock Art Show in Philadelphia this morning. Sadly this gig was not announced beforehand which meant that all his loyal fans that attend his gigs at The Tin Angel were unable to see this free performance nor listen on the radio. Apparently an interview will be aired on the Fox 10 O'Clock News on channel 29 in the Philadelphia area.
12.30 - Jennifer Salyer has added some photos of Kasim's gig last Sunday to her own site - click here to view them.
12.15 - There's now a bit of Flash at the top of this Index page (there are no plans to add any more Flash or the site will take too long to open and the main aim of this site is to get out info about Kasim Sulton!).
02.30 - A new review and some great photos of Kasim Sulton's gig last Sunday have been added to the Triad Theatre page and some different ones to the Photo Gallery. Many thanks to Jennifer Salyer for the use of these.

19.15 - The Flash thingy on the front page of the site has been changed - unfortunately it's quite heavy on graphics so it will take a while to load the first time you view it but once it's in your cache it should be reasonably quick. Many thanks to Jennifer Salyer, Frank Ciapanna, Gary "Goat" Goveia and Janet Spahr for the use of their photos.
13.30 - A note about Kasmania.de.
This is a message that I posted to a Kasim Sulton mailing list after someone had posted the link to the site: As great as I think it is that there's a German site about Kasim, this site STOLE about 80 photos from my website KasimInfo.com (it also has photos from KasimSulton.com and photos by Jennifer Salyer, Sandi Daae, Frank Ciapanna, David Killary, the MLUKFC Fan Club and The Bucks - all used without their permission and probably their knowledge).
I have now written to Maxi on two occasions to ask for at least a prominent photo credit. This she has refused to do. After the first occasion back in October she closed the site but it reopened this week. The photo credit (and text credit as she mainly just swiped text straight from my site but translated it into German) was in a small white box (in German) that then opened into a pop-up box - both Sandi and I missed it the first time we looked (in fact I had to point it out to Sandi!).
The front page of the site has now been removed but click here if you don't believe me - that page consists of 11 of my photos, several of Jen's and a couple of Sandi's (it's also called the 2002 solo tour page but has mainly photos from his Meat Loaf sets and his 2001 tour).
When Maxi first closed the site, I wrote and asked her to consider re-opening it as I don't like the idea of any site about Kasim being closed. However, I did feel strongly that having spent months of my time and hundreds of my dollars, sterling or deutschmarks travelling around seeing Kasim, that she had a real cheek just setting up a website with photos of Kasim taken from other websites without photo credits.
I truly hope that she does reconsider opening the site again but with original material. Sue Williams
If Kasmania.de does reopen with original material, the link will certainly be added to KasimInfo.com as with any sites about Kasim Sulton.
13.15 - Pollstar.com list Kasim Sulton as making an appearance at a Borders in Chicago, IL on Friday 13th December. Click here to view the listing (which is not yet confirmed).
13.00 - Unfortunately due to technical problems yesterday, KasimInfo.com was unable to be updated. Amazingly the site still had 415 page hits!

18.00 - A review of Kasim Sulton's gig last Sunday has been added to the Kasim Sulton's appearances to promote Quid Pro Quo section of the site or click here for the direct link.

13.30 - Click here and here for further details about the Rock Art Show Auction and the chance to obtain a copy of the lyrics of Set Me Free handwritten by Kasim Sulton. As stated below, you have to place a bid in person at the gallery in Philadelphia. As it's for a good cause, if anyone would like to place a bid, I have a friend who can place one for anyone (she's reliable and follows through on what she promises). If you're interested, please e-mail SueW@KasimInfo.com.
07.30 - As the wording in the non-WMGKpress release about Kasim's participation in the Rock Art Show is ambiguous, a few people have asked about how to place bids on Kasim's lyrics. Hopefully the official press release will make it clearer but you have to place a bid in person at the gallery.
02.45 - The News section of the site has been updated about Kasim's great gig last night.
17.30 - According to a post on the Meat Loaf Live mailing list Meat Loaf's new album (on which Kasim plays bass and sings background vocals) will now definitely NOT be called Testify.

10.00 - As previously mentioned on KasimInfo.com, the press release about Kasim Sulton's particiaption in the WMGK Rock Art Show has finally been been added to Harmody.com. Click here to read it.

06.30 - The front page of the site has been updated with a new Flash thingy about Quid Pro Quo.
18.30 - The opening page of the Sphere Sound Records website has changed. Click here to view it but, as it will disappear at some point, Scott Van Dusen's words are:
"SALES OF Quid Pro Quo ARE BRISK ::
I am continually amazed at the beauty of Kasim Sulton's Quid Pro Quo.
I feel blessed to have had the opportunity to release this disc on Sphere Sound Records, and to get your positive
emails and phone calls. Working with Kasim has been a true bright light in my life.
From the early days of our negotiations, I don't think the disc has left my CD player from demo form to finished state!
Remember with the holidays approaching, Quid Pro Quo will make an excellent gift. I am sure that the messages in these songs will reach the recipient in ways that they have touched you and me. "
10.45 - Congratulations to Dorren (Splithorn) for actually making an on-air announcement on WLIR about Kasim Sulton's gig with Moogy Klingman this Sunday - great promotion!

"Sunday is fast approaching and it's time to make reservations if you
wanna catch this show. This is going to be a one-time only event.
We will be doing songs with Kasim Sulton and not just separate sets.
Kasim will be rehearing with The Freak Parade for the big nite."
