And so it begins

Dear Phoenix Camper,
You have been placed in Dave Ellefson’s band, for your upcoming Camp on August 22th. As an added surprise - an additional Rock Star Counselor has been added to your band!!!! Legendary musician Gilby Clarke is the perfect addition to your extraordinary group!

SWEET.

Which means the songs I'll be working on are the following:
  • Aerosmith - Walk This Way
  • Black Sabbath - Paranoid
  • Judas Priest - Breaking the Law
  • Megadeth - Symphony of Destruction
  • Megadeth Cover - Anarchy in the UK
  • The Beatles - Get Back
  • Cheap Trick - Surrender
  • Rolling Stones - It's Only Rock and Roll
  • David Bowie - Suffragette City
OK...out of that list the only one I feel fairly comfortable on is Paranoid. Looks like I need to start boning up on some of the rest of them. I think I can probably get Surrender and maybe Get Back. The rest we'll just have to play by ear. Assuming of course, that I actually could play by ear. It actually looks like its gonna be a fun set whichever way it falls.

I don't know how much time I'll get with the King's X guy..but I'll see him 4 times. I'll work it in...'dude..you totally need to do more stuff with Dream Theatre!'. :-)

hah, at least we attempted a few of these, I didn't even consider the Rolling Stones song. "paranoid" is always fun because it's so easy to play, which is probably why Junior Ellefson had it on his list.

Oddly OK

I should, by all accounts, be freaking out right about now. Most of my friends and even my daughter are kind of freaking out for me. Which i...
