So 2005 is done... I'm kicking the doors open on 2006 by watching Motley Crue's new Carnival of Sins DVD on the surround sound. Their type of style has long since been played out, but they still have kick ass stage presence and I love their music.
Speaking of stage presence, wife and I went to see my drum instructors band last night. They have a new singer. A girl replaced a guy vocalist. Now this band used to be heavy--ala Ozzy, Alice in Chains, Pantera, etc. Last night was their first show with the new singer, and the heaviest thing they did was Alanis Morrisette. This was not the same band I'm used to seeing. They actually did something called "I saw him standing next to the juke box". Some Joan Jett crap I believe.
I have to give the girl her props, she can do Alanis to a tee, but nailing one or two songs out of an entire set wont get them booked in this town. I was cordial when asked my opinion after their set. The best heavy band we have in this town is still "X". Check them out over in my links section. They have a killer light show and the guitar player is so stuck in the 80's with his style, he actually pulls you back with him.
So tonight we are supposed to practice again. I believe we are going to record this practice. If I can edit something that I believe is quality enough, I might post a clip.
P.S. Where's MPD????
