a picture..

nothing special..just a pic of me from battle of the bands.

everyone says we shouldve won but this one rap group got it because, now a days, everyone prefers rap over rock. i had a sweet ass drum solo too! ****ed up once but everyone says i did great. but didnt win. so blah, whatever..

have another gig october 1st and this one is paying! recording october 5th, which is also the day live in budakon comes out (DT), and is also the anniversery of my dad's death. eh..

ahh the battle of the band blues...
well, now you're getting some real mileage. you ain't no blues man unless you have mileage...as spoken by willy brown to eugene on that guitar movie we all know.

as long as the battle of the band was totally fair it's ok to loose and learn from it. what's important you tried and did your best and enjoyed it.

now if you let me talk some more...

i experienced lots of crappy unfair BOTB during the so called struggling packing up mileage period.
but sooner or later things will change for the better.
my band during the mid 90's won three times in a row on one of the major Battles here in the Phils. My current band now just lost to a small time battle bec. of dumb ass unfair depth
judges...LOL! Lots of crappy outside bull**** is happening to my band nowdays and excuse me for blurting it on your nice little thread. anyway it's always a blessing in disguise when ppl turn us down as it's just a struggling phase we are having, once more in my life. the nice thing about it my bandmates are like my brothers. really good funny idiots...hehe but i love them and hope we get far on this.
