I was working on an old piece from about 10 years ago because I loved the characters. No real purpose – I just wanted to see what these people were up to – when things seemed to take a turn. Everything is being blown up and reworked but I love the direction so far.
Story is about some guys from an early 80’s heavy metal band that were put together by the record company (hence it started out as a business relationship) and they taste stardom and big things are happening when the singer walks away from it all to save his own life. In the process of saving his own life the other members don’t fare as well.
Love it love it. I have a near obsession with early 80’s rock – we’re talking pre Motley Crue and the LA stuff. Obsession – strong word – but I have characters in my head that are always bouncing around and they’re amazing I just need to tap into them and let them tell their story and hopefully do them justice.
