Another One Gone...

If you haven't already heard, you'll be sad to know that drummer Scott Asheton died Saturday night. If you don't know who he is, Asheton played drums for (among many other groups) the Stooges. Asheton's basic, machine-like playing profoundly influenced just about every single drummer who ever jammed in a punk rock band. The great ones continue to pass.

As far as the album goes, progress has been slow now (as you know, having read all my posts bitching about the various distractions I've had to deal with) since at least mid-February. And we had another major snow storm last evening. So I doubt I'll have more than a handful of hours to work on anything new. A new riff found its way into my head yesterday, which means I have four concrete song ideas in mind now. I'm thinking now that I'm just going to call it an album after I get 12-13 songs in the can. Of course, I change my mind by the hour...
