This goes to show that no matter how “into” something you are, you can still miss significant milestones. I just found out about WhoCares this morning…about four years after it was released. It’s fair to call it a supergroup, given the roster of players:
Ian Gillan (Deep Purple)
Tony Iommi (Black Sabbath)
Nicko McBrain (Iron Maiden)
Linde Lindström (HIM)
Jon Lord (Deep Purple)
Jason Newsted (Metallica).
All along, all I’ve really wanted to be is a writer. So now I tell people that’s what I am, even though I haven’t earned a dime being a writer.
That being said, I’ll confess that once a day, every day, I wish I was still a musician. That was the one time in my life when I was cool.
