★I've got an email from Magnus (Hammerfall) right before X'mas. I am the one who usually send him a card or email message, but this time he beat me! I was glad to hear from him, but we don't exchange emails. One of us sends an email, and the other one answers,,,that's it. Can we communicate a little more? I wanna know how you are doing there, Magnus!
★Unlike usual, we didn't spend our X'mas night at Dale's family. We went to Hodgy's house for a X'mas party. He seems to throw the party every year for the friends who are not from local. It was getting a big party towards midnight.
Ｈくんはヘンな柄の上着コレクションを持っている。これももうひとつのバンドのコスチュームなんだが・・・。 ★Hodgy got some hideous jackets. He made some girls wore the jackets..
うちのバンドのＪが、そのバンドではドラムをやっているのだ。そのへんな柄の上着を試着してみる。どっかのデパートの広告のようだとは本人の弁。 ★So did Jeff. He gave himself a compliment as, "I looked like a model in a JC Penney ad." I think JC Penney has better designed jacket.
他にポーズはないのか？ ★Is there anything else to pause for?
以前も紹介したが、Ｈくんの家の一室はバンド練習用のスタジオになっている。 ここで、今回のパーティでもミュージシャンが集まりジャムセッションと相成った。 ★There were a lot of musicians at the party, so what they do at Hodgy's is usually jamming.
自分のいつもの楽器やポジションでないと、うまいこといかないんだが、それがまたおもろい。 ★Sometimes, if the instrument was not your own specialty, it didn't work as much as usual, but it rather sounds fun.
カバーする曲がほとんどで、おもろいのが、「君らはみんな同年代だろ！」といえるような時代の曲ばっかり。 ★Those songs they played were from 80's or early 90's. I could tell, "You guys are all in the same generation!!"
Metallicaの"Justice for All"からとか、Iron Maidenの"Seventh son...."とか、Dio, Ratt, Motley Crue, Ozzy Osborne, Van Halen, Black Sabath, Scorpions, Dokken, QueensRyche,Laaz Rocket, しまいにゃLove/Hates（これ知ってる奴いるかああ？） ★The above bands and album titles were all what they played. Love/Hates! I wonder how many people know this band...especially if you are in 20's...
しかし、以上だけでも曲がを認識しましたあっしも同年代。 いやぁ、８０年代から９０年代初期はよかったっすね。 ★Hey, I recognized most of the songs, so it meant I am in the same generation.
やっぱりＤはドラムやってるのが一番うまいな。 ★Well, to be honest, Dale is the best when he plays drums....
