I saw the musical We Will Rock You last night. It was awesome. How can it be bad? It's Queen's music set to a story about how the world has turned into a homogenized technological world and two rebels (and a group of Bohemians) have discovered that there used to be rock n roll and they have to bring it back. The story is silly, but the music and the singing is incredible. The leads were fantastic - no Freddie Mercury, but he's untouchable.
For all my acoustic playing as of late, I'm always gonna be a rocker. I'm listening to the Balconies right now, a Canadian band with a powerhouse front woman/guitar slinger. She's amazing - the band is amazing. I saw them at SXSW and was instantly in awe. You will be too.
But anyway. Between Queen and the Balconies and AC/DC being in my dream last night, I realize how much I miss rocking out. I still play a loud distorted guitar in my apartment, but I'm talking about the drenched-in-sweat-in-a-dive-bar type of rocking out. Leaning-up-against-another-bandmate rocking out. Extended-guitar-solo rocking out.
I gotta get back to doing that. All the songs I play acoustic are completely adaptable (and designed for, ultimately) to full band.
So let's get rocking! (again!)
