Milo doesn’t know it yet, but we’re starting a band together. I’m going to play guitar and yell, and he’s going to play drums. If you know a bassist, lemme know. I was thinking about asking the neighbor kid to learn a few chords.
We’ll call it The Tossers or The Piazzas.
I was thinking about it this morning when I was stuck in traffic jam that made Mexico City look like Montana.
But I didn’t care because I was listening to Three Snakes and One Charm
, drinking a smashing cup of coffee and thinking about Ramona and my band.
Listening, drinking, thinking.
Our set will consist of four songs, all of which’ll be covers:
“Loving Cup” by The Stones
The first song off that Tool record Aenima
“All I Want for X-Mas” in honor of my departed hero Cranford
And the third tune to be named later. I would like to do “Brown-Eyed Handsome Man,” but I can’t approximate anything close to Chuck Berry on the guitar. (Not that I can any of the other tunes, but there’s something about playing Chuck the right way.)
Four songs in 15 minutes, and we’ll be done.
