No, I'm not a singer. And as awful as DLR sounds, he still sounds better than me!If you were offered this gig would you take it?
He doesn't look right either. Can't quite put my hand on it, but something is off.
I was a senior in college when Eruption came on the air waves and listening to it reminded me when I was much younger hearing Foxy Lady for the first time. “That’s a guitar? Who is this?”My childhood wouldn't have been the same without him, Eddie, Alex, and Michael.
I wouldn’t. I’d be embarrassed to be up there.To answer “would you take the gig?” I would say “who wouldn’t?” If it’s a steady paycheck for a while, what working musician doesn’t want that? The sidemen are fairly out-shined by the star, so they’d be anonymous guys playing sorta well-known rock n roll and getting paid regularly.
Sadly I don't think it would have been Jason Becker, although it would be nice if it was.David Lee kind of foretold his future in this video - look at this video starting around 3:50. There's a scene from "October 2021":
I was stage manager for that video, for all the indoor scenes anyway (except the pawn shop). It only aired once or twice before mtv banned it. I never saw it until recently. I wonder who played the fortune teller - I suspect it was Jason Becker.
