Keyboard player: Back in February a keyboard player from Competa advertised on here looking to join or start a band. I think his name was Ian Thompson. I have tried in vain to contact him via his advertised email address and Dropbox message service and what I believe to be his Facebook account. Does anybody know if he is still about? Thank you.
