The Late Jack Tramiel was a fan of the c64 Demoscene

Redback here just tells me he had a chat with Jeroen Tel and he said that he was in contact with Jack Tramiel late in his life and told him about the demoscene... And he actually loved it and watched Youtube videos of c64 demos until his death and had been actually following the scene!

Also, the interview that Jeroen Tel gave on Dutch TV was seriously cut, he said lots of things about Jack Tramiel and they cut it all out (even though the programme was supposedly about his death), retaining only the parts where Jeroen talks about his work - making it look like a complete ego-trip!

Just thought I'd tell you, gotta go down, the ABSOLUTELY INSANE and massive X Democompo is continuing....

Thank you for this important information DeeKay. A C64 mag have to make a interview with Jeroen Tel, that he can tell the complete Jack Tramiel story. We have to write this down.

JT noticed my Aussie accent and we hit it off from there. If I recall our conversation correctly Jack did not know about the demoscene till JT informed him.

I think I was there as well when Jeroen told this story.

It was Friday night, after his performance. Drinking beers and chatting until early in the morning in the almost empty basement.

Where were all the party people? The real party was there ;)

I always wondered if Jack knew about the demoscene, or what he might think about it.

Any of the early commodore guys really....... i think it would be a really amazing feeling that people had done things with your creation that you never thought would be possible.
