Mr. Levin And Me, We’re Gonna Be Big Stars…

Tonight, after not sleeping at all last night, I jammed with Dad for the first time in a long time. Our awesome sonic grooves were enough to convince me to take our show on the road as “Levin & Son” or “Levin & Father” or “Rise of the Levins’ Son” or something less crappy sounding. Picking out a name is really the biggest hurdle between us and becoming a household name at this point. There are also just a few other minor, tiny, almost non-kinks that we need to work the kinks out of before international superstardom:

1) Release Totally Awesome Chart Topping Hit Songs. We are well on our way to completing our first mega hit single that will rock the hearts of all peoples, young and old. We have two chords down so far: E minor and A. They sound really good together. We’ve also done some experimentation with B and F, but we’re still debating whether or not those would be too showy.

2) Radically Make The Songs We’re Covering Our Own In A Super Radical Way. At our sold out arena concerts, our crowds are going to love our takes on some old classics. We’ve added a lot of new chords, words, mumbling, pauses, cursing and start overs. We’re even considering going to such lengths as listening to the original versions of the songs we’re covering, so we could incorporate at least a little bit of the original sound, like the melody, into our new, way more kick-ass sound.

3) Practice. We heard this was important but I don’t know how much we need it–we seem to be naturally gifted rock stars. I guess there are still a few things we won’t really know until we’ve played together some more, that I guess we could work out in practice instead of on the world stage. For instance, we’re fairly confident that we want our guitars in tune, and also in tune with each other. But we’re keeping our minds open at this point. We don’t want to get too far ahead of ourselves.

So if you’d like to be a part of this million mile-per-hour machine that’s about to make money off every man, woman and child in the galaxy, you should give me a call ASAP.


Listening to some band’s demo or something. I don’t know what the hell this is supposed to be–oh wait. Oh no. Oh crap.
