Default Re: Knowing your band's lyrics?

When I was playing originals, many I knew. Many more I didn't and many more again, I thought I knew......until we recorded and I heard an acurate playback. I can recall numerous times where I was surprised at what was actually being said, as opposed to what I thought they were. Personally, I like Bermuda's approach....."I'm not concerned with knowing the lyrics per se, any more than I'd need to know what key a song is in. But it is important for me to know where the lyrics are just so I don't step on them."

Can relate to the hammer addict Mike......I've had one of those too. I'm pretty convinced HE didn't know the lyrics from one week to the next either.....alas, neither he or his lyrics are around for it to matter now anyway.
