I have always been the only guy who said no.
I believe in moving forward in life and I don't really go in for nostalgia.
Reunions are generally something I get called to do for other bands when one of their members says no.
When a band member dies.... I don't know.. I just felt as though it will never be the same, so why even try to go there?
I don't know if I just miss the other guys, or if I have had enough time to move on and I still haven't... but a few days ago when the call that comes once every few years, that I usually dread and nearly have an aneurysm over came.... I said yes.
Four hours later two nights at a club in Wicker Park were reserved for the Halloween weekend of 2013. Uhhh, what did I get myself into? I don't have an amp suitable for high-gain "rock" music anymore, I can't even listen to "Reign in Blood" in it's entirety anymore (the last album of distorted guitar that I have that doesn't make me want to punch myself in the face), and my last SK8Guitar was given to a grieving friend of the deceased to have something to remember him by.
So I'm gonna have to build another one of these:
Damn! This is getting to be my most expensive "guitar year" since 1992. Anybody know of a guitar brand I might like enough to be seen with on stage? It sounds like a NOS skate deck from an old endorsement deal is on its way... I just have to figure out what kind of guitar I'll be cutting apart in order to make a new one.
Any and all ideas are appreciated.
