Ah Las Vegas. That seems to be a theme I come back to often as well. There is something about being on Las Vegas Boulevard that I just can’t explain. I got married there at the Flamingo four years ago and last year we went back and stayed at The Mirage (which I highly recommend). The funny thing is, I don’t gamble (except for the occasional football game). Unless of course, you consider being in the music business gambling.
I don’t know how this song popped up today. I guess I was thinking about Vegas. I love it there and I don’t gamble, I’ve tried to get Adair to move there but she’s not convinced.
And like the song, we did get married in Vegas and it was the best. It could not have been better. This song’s not about our experience exactly it’s talking about in more general poetic terms. Songwriter stuff, I guess. Anyway, real estate is super cheap in Vegas. Invest and let me know.
Today was a busy start to the work week. I’m sore already but that means we got a lot of stuff recycled.
Speaking of recycling, the sequence of this song was something that was made on my Triton some time in the last few years. I happened to hear it and decided to take it in a different direction. This used to be the way that I’d demo all of my songs. I was more comfortable playing keyboard drums. Now you can’t keep me off the real drums. That’s why I made a concerted effort to do a song like this today.
This is my tribute to those long-lost guitar days. Not particularly what I feel in real life but it paints a funny picture.
