As title says.. sitting in with some of my old "variety" band mates for 6 or so songs tonight. We used to cover a huge range of music from Abba (no, not really, but almost) to ZZ Top. From MJ, to Floyd to Skynyrd to Jason Aldean to... well, you get the idea. I'm the gui**** tonight.. no bass, as my old bass player was awesome and is playing!! Along with a couple of other folks we're doing this in memory of our long time former lead singer. We spent MANY hours on stage with JD, who passed away of unknown reasons (officially "cardiac arrest") about 10 days ago. He was 42 (the youngest of us) and left behind a wife and 2 girls aged 12 and 9. He's the only guy I've ever played with who had a voice that would transcend the variety of styles we played from 2007 to late 2011. We're going to do some of his favorites songs, with no rehearsals/prep. Simply wing them! I had to yank out my guitar and backup rig (GT10) to do this, as I've played very little guitar over the last 3 yrs... should be fun... but then.. the memories will be tough!
