Slomo u play ?????? in a band ????
I'm still learning...only been playing about a year. I'm about to turn 21, so this is hardly the prime-time in my life to start learning. I had never really been into music THAT much until I started digging Creed during high school, and eventually I said what the heck and bought a guitar.
I have no plans of ever being in a band, I'm just learning solely for my own enjoyment. I figure it's a lot more productive than wasting my day in front of my damn PS2 playing MVP...though I still do my fair share of that....
If you have never tried learning a musical instrument, I recommend it...it's truly a humbling experience...haha. But it does make you appreciate music more...I have a much higher respect for a lot of types of music now than I ever did.
But yeah, regarding Alter Bridge...they are going to rock. The single is supposed to hit the radio tomorrow...so get ready to hear it, and the full album comes out in August. I'm sure they won't have the popularity of Creed right away (probably a good thing), but I have almost no doubt that they will get there. Hopefully there won't be any singles like "With Arms Wide Open" (beautiful song, but it brought WAY too many teeny-bopping 13 year olds to Creed's fan base...sucked to be at a concert and feel like you should be babysitting. It was worth it to see the looks on their faces when the heavier songs were played though.)
Apparently they are going to start touring in the Fall, at small venues like the House of Blues, Hard Rock Cafe, etc...the whole band is on this '70s rock flashback right now and they want nothing to do with the mainstream rock label. I think it's a cool thing, we'll see how it works for them. I'm sure eventually they'll have to tour in the larger arenas, but for now I'd love to see them up close.
