This is the third video I’m posting as a reminder to the times and a thanksgiving to the people and venues that made being in a band so amazing and rewarding. I will forever be grateful for the “living in the NOW” moments music brings. I have often felt possessed when performing on stage and also while practicing.
This song was recorded by Tragedy Theory in 2009 at Brimstone Records in Tennessee. Allen Owens sings and Dan McCray plays lead guitar. Eddie Hamby on drums and myself on bass.
The first video I ever made was for a band called December Harvest. The members were Jimmy Vegas, Nick Bones and Stephen, I played bass for them for a little over a year. I didn’t help write any of the songs because I was a little out of my wheel house with this type of music. However, I enjoyed it very much.
I hope you enjoy the music.
Over the years I have played bass for a couple bands. Sad to admit they never went anywhere under my leadership, but I’m not giving up on music. I am taking a new approach to the entire idea of performing art. As you might can tell from my writing, or if you’ve heard any of my music as of yet, I have a lot I want to say about our place in the universe and our position in the spirit world. I come at the questions I have through faith and fiction because it takes a little both to bridge the gap I so often find between one mind and the next.
I have also made a couple videos, which is not really something I do well. However, I think they have something to say and I’m going to post them over the Thanksgiving weekend.
Because I am thankful for my creativity. I am thankful for my place in this universe and my place in the spirit world. I am thankful for my friends and former band mates. I’m really thankful that I get to be in bands and play shows and make videos. I’m thankful I have something to say, no matter how many people read it or see it or hear it.
So, this is Minor Nine. The Song is “Mark Afraid to Fly.” Rex Green sings and plays guitar. He also wrote the song. Robert Ruddick is on lead guitar and Matt Fahey is the drummer. I am on bass and I made the video.
