Re: Still going strong
- It's interesting that you notice that only a
couple of songs are writen in first person(I). Park that
Truck was and for that reason it was very unusual for
me to perform. I honestly didn't like the message
but Robb insisted we do the lyrics like that. I know
it's one of Tony's favourites but for me it seemed far
nastier than I beleive in, The subject bothered me then
and still does to this day. Somehow really violent
themes seem to go hand in hand with heavy metal music,
and expressing things of beauty and wonderment is
much more difficult to fit with this type of music.
Singing about roses in the garden doesn't come across too
heavy but singing about decapitation can't help but
sound heavy. You are correct though, singing in first
person has a much sharper edge and if and when I use
this format I always try to be careful not to make
myself seem foolish or stupid. I like songs that the
singer tells a life experience but it is all a matter of
what the peice of music is behind the lyric. Most of
the time you look for a hook line that has a specific
amount of sylables or beats so that it fits on top of
the music. For every song there are all kinds of
perameters you must work within, not just what it says, but
melody and rythem.

I've never heard about The Foundation's gig...I imagine all kind of
bad thing. Does he have a pneumonia? (secondary smoke yunno, hmmmm...)
A cold maybe? We all know that you work hard, but Dan wrote a message
to remind you some festivals...Why don't you react? Are you bored of
your own fanclub, man?
I would like to have your opinion on this Def Leppard's commercial
song...Do you hear the "Back in Black" riff and the "Rock of ages"
melody? "Am I going insane"?
Also, I would appreciate IF you could take a look at
www.anvil.here.ws and that you tell me if you find the colors
too "feminin". And, if it is....suggest me some ideas, it's easy to
You know that I'm really worry about you, dood? A truck accident? I
