Man, seems just like yesterday I made a big deal about going below 100 days till THE MAZE RUNNER's release date. And now it's only 77 days. It's coming!
I had a great time in Georgia. One of the highlights was our jam session on Friday. Some background: my brother David was the lead singer for a metal band called Lazarus that became very popular in the DC area. They even got flown to London by a studio (and it all fell apart, which is a very long story, but it includes death by car and food poisoning.)
My brother Paul is excellent on the guitar. My nephew Matt is attending the Atlanta Institute of Music to become a sound engineer. He's also incredible on the drums and guitar. And me? My friend in high school had a full set of drums and I dinked around on them. Yeah, I was by far the least talented of the group.
Anyway, Matt was able to get the recording studio at his school for the day, and we jammed. David wrote the song, and it was awesome. I mostly sat back and watched, but I did play the drums for about an hour while my brothers messed around on their guitars. I loved every single second of it and I've already asked Santa for a drum set this Christmas.
Anyway, here are some pictures:
