    Awesome! I’ll have to tune in. The last series he did on baseball was fantastic…and I’m not even a big baseball fan. This gives me extra incentive to tune it! Congrats, Nuno, Gary, Pat and Figg! I’m so excited for you all (but especially you, Nuno, as it’s sort of YOUR song!)

    Awesome news for an Extreme fan and a baseball junkie. What an honor to be featured in a Ken Burns project. Can’t wait to see it.

    It was so great to hear “Midnight Express” play during the Ken Burns documentary, and it was so awesome to see Nuno’s and Gary’s names in the credits as well as Extreme’s name! Way to get it out there! So, so cool. It was an excellent documentary. Quite fascinating and I’m not even a huge baseball fan. The still photos they showed during the program were amazing.

    Today I´ve put on “Punchline”. It´s the best album you have ever made. Even after 15 years I can still find something new there… Thanks.

    Just want to expose to you all Nuno and Extreme fans a link to my son playing “midnight express” on a talent show in North Norway. Just 16 years old, but a big talent, please post comments on his clip.
