Practice Tomorrow...

Tomorrow will be a little unusual in that I'll be singing a song written by another member in the band. That may sound as if it should be a commonplace thing, but I don't know that I've ever sung a song written by someone else in a band I'm in. Obviously I have sung many cover songs and I've sung along with another singer in the band on a song I helped write or that the singer wrote, but in the past people have always seemed to sing my songs rather than vice versa. But tomorrow I'll be taking over the lead vocals on that song George III wrote that we started working on a couple weeks ago. It's something he wrote when he was just 17! He said I could modify the lyrics, so I might "re-do" a word or two. 

The Beatles with Billy Preston played their famous rooftop concert at the Apple corporate headquarters in London on this day in 1969. It was, of course, the last time they ever played together.

Gene Simmons, Paul Stanley, Ace Frehley, and Peter Criss appeared as KISS for the first time when they played a gig at the Popcorn Club in Queens, New York.

"I'm a great believer in not over-thinking lyrics. You might become technically better as a songwriter, but you lose what originally made your songs great." - Paul Stanley
