Music's Edge Rock Camp, Day 2 (Tuesday):
We added third drummer to my group — tons of percussion.
So far, we’ve only poked at bits and pieces of the tunes. (We usually don’t make it all the way through any song until Wednesday afternoon.). But we’ve decided on our five — after strenuous debate and some moaninag/groaning. (Pulled teeth to get our craziest energetic character to take off his guitar and sing Elvis.)
I’m re-optimizing my enthusiasm for yet another showing of a certain camp-record-holding G&R song. This means our avian female lead singer will be holding court with Stevie Nicks, Lorde, Annie Lennox, and .... Axle Rose.
Thanks to Ricardo Llamas & Marietta Bonaventure (from Llorona). They delivered a full-camp songwriting lesson, resulting in a soaring metal ballad about the terrifying onslaught of angry critters of the wild animal kingdom.)
