Shred dad

I just discovered a man on Reddit who’d done the 80s hard rock lead guitarist thing, without commercial success, and lost the drive for it. Gave up guitar playing, settled down, had some kids. About a year ago, he was somehow inspired to come out of retirement for fun, to see if he could play a fairly advanced classical guitar piece.

OMG QUICKSAND

Quicksand are touring the US this fall. I’ve managed to see them live on three separate occasions (twice post-breakup), and they’re still as feral as ever. So I was already feeling pretty excited… until the band took to social media an hour ago to tease us with new material, including the enigmatic-but-not-really mention: “interiors | 2017″


So much stoke!

I am in (drum)hog heaven

Holy crap: Danny Carey sat in premier Genesis tribute band The Musical Box the other night! Am I stoked that this clip is of the song “Can-Utility And The Coastliners”? Not exactly… but I’ll take what I can get.

(By the way, if I haven’t yet extolled the virtues of The Musical Box: they are absolutely amazing live.
