8. Death Blues
I’ve been slowly amassing a collection of death versions of every genre of music, so obviously a blues tune should be in there, as well. I also thought it would be cool if I could write a tune where I could play the guitar with one hand and use the other to play a trombone solo. That’s what the end jam section is all about. Not sure if I’ll ever do it live, but there it is, nonetheless. Lyrically, I’m just blasting every Black Sabbath rip-off band on the planet. This came about because I’ve played with sooooooo many of these bands over the years; they all sound the same, they all look the same, and they’re always more than happy to play my shows, but if I ask one of them for a show, there’s always some bullshit excuse why they can’t book anything for me. Here are some lyric excerpts that I’m proud of:

Quoting Black Sabbath
Through an Orange Cabinet
Can it go Louder
Til Heads are powder…

Eagle Talon Bubble Logo
Wizard Witchcraft Pagan Funeral
Let’s just go smoke some dope…

Five “N’s” in SunnnnnO
That amp will blow
Rickenbacker bass
Feeds back in your face…

If you are in a doom band that is highly influenced by Black Sabbath, like they all are, I’m not making fun of your band. You guys are cool! Thanks for buying the album!
