Later this week, I will create a separate page on this blog for the video and pictures from the concert.
Going to see Skillet last night was the cap to a perfect weekend, which included filling Alex's mind with information about drums and music. We watched the Metallica movie "Through the Never" on DVD. When he'd ask me questions, I rattled off the history of Metallica, including:
- why they wouldn't get played on the radio
- Mustaine's famous quote, "What time does my plane leave?"
- "Enter Sandman"
- why Lars Ulrich has only two toms now because he played another set of drums (Sean Kinney's, who plays in Alice in Chains) and found that having the hihat closer was a better fit,
- how mesmerized I was when I heard "Hit the Lights" for the first time.
