I’ll continue with my feel good, take on the world theme again today. This song has been one of my favorites since I wrote it when I was going through a tough time back in 2003. It’s been a big inspiration to me ever since and it’s been a great song to start shows with as well. It was originally on my ‘Getaway Plans’ album. The solo and guitar work by John Tuggle is really cool on this one too. Check out his ‘Learn Guitar Now’ videos online sometime. Dwayne Wallace’s backing vocals on this one always make me smile too. Thanks for listening!
My brother came up to work on my house today so we streamed the new Slayer album off of myspace. It’s awesome! They just keep getting better. Anyway, I actually wrote this song while listening to Slayer, my brother hammering and during website project I was trying to finish.
It kind of just leaked between the cracks. I haven’t done a metal-ish song lately, so I was definitely due.
Thanks for listening!
Welcome to Chris Cates.com. I'm an old school independent artist with lots of albums, songs, solar panels etc. This site tries to encapsulate what it is I've been doing since I played my first professional gig at 13. I post a song of the day occasionally from my somewhat excessive original song catalogue and I'm constantly recording new material when I'm not building solar farms, trying to play golf or tennis or taking care of my new twin girls.
