tonight we're going to rock you tonight....
Having already displayed my geekish tendencies by spending much of last week playing Spider-Man II, I'm maybe a little reluctant to tell you about this....
Oh, go on then.
I spent several hours yesterday evening pretending that I am a rock god.
Sad, yes... but in my defence, it wasn't just me.
Sarah turned out to be an absolute natural.
...and Lord B kept being asked by the crowd to play encores (even if he had never heard "Tonight We're Going To Rock You Tonight" before. I really must sit him down in front of Spinal Tap)
Hen instinctively understood the crucial role of the "rock face" as the solo reaches its climax.
...whilst C. preferred a more "classical" style.
Guitar Hero is a very, very silly game indeed (do you think anyone under the age of 30 actually buys this?).
And as a direct and somewhat unfortunate consequence of the game soundtrack, I am now also earworming some of the most ridiculous heavy metal: "Strutter" by Kiss. "Carry On Wayward Son" by Kansas. "Woman" by Wolfmother. "Them Bones" by Alice In Chains....
What's not to like?
Photos taken by Hen and Sarah and available here and here. An excellent evening.
