Admiration Day Parade = done

Filed under: Announcements,News,Video Clips — Drew Johnson @ 10:28 pm

We got Admiration Day tracked last night. It rocks. We slowed it down a tad from where we were playing it on Sunday and it helped a lot. Dino had to be convinced to accept his drum performance as awesome. I won’t give it away (you’ll have to wait for the album) but there’s this tiny, tiny, tiny little thing that happens in the middle of one of his fills that bothered him. (FYI, that drum fill is not the one we talk about in the video) Everyone else thought it was cool as hell. We listened to it over and over and over and over and over…and over, telling Dino that we liked it. He gave in. Dino is the most perfection driven person I know. For him to accept the little quirkiness of that split second was a huge deal. I on the other hand am happy if I get through the day without crapping my pants. Different strokes…

So here’s some video from the Tuesday before Thanksgiving when we did Waterloo…and some from last night.

While we’ve been recording, my son Riley has been working on recording an album of his own. He’s got this cool little toy that is sort of a mixing/recording console. I caught him doing take after take just like dear old dad. He prefers to record in his underwear just like me. Dig the quick booger picking/eating action. I taught him that too.

  1. Thanks for the video updates from your recording sessions- looks like you guys are layin’ it down. Can’t wait to hear the finished product!

    Riley is definitely a child prodigy. I’ve never seen a finer display of beatboxing/caroling/booger eating from such a young and talented tyke. Nothing wrong with a little “mining for gold” every now and then- I hope he picked a winner….

  2. Finally got a chance to sit down and watch this gem.

    I must say, it sorta sounds like the lost vocal tracks for the Black Sabbath Christmas album.

    Riley’s gonna be ashamed that you’re not as hardcore as he is . . .
