Rocky Beginnings, Happy Trails

I stopped by the studio this afternoon to pay the band a visit while they laid down some drum tracks for the upcoming album, Master of Ceremonies (not the real title). Zachary is the only one in the band who plays the drums, so while he was sequestered in one room, wailing away at his kit, everyone else sat behind soundproofed glass and talked shit about him.

All the negativity did not bode well for the group’s morale, and everyone was unhappy.

Then Dave, the drum engineer (pictured at top), spoke up. “Hey guys, why don’t we try focusing on the positive for a while?”
David, the co-producer (pictured second from top), thought for a second, then piped in as well. “Yeah,” he said. “Why not? I mean we’re all young, healthy, and relatively good looking.”
Ariel, the producer (third from top), nodded slowly, then gradually picked up enthusiasm. “Yeah,” he said. “YEAH!”
It wasn’t long before everyone in the two rooms was clapping and high-fiving, shouting positivities at one another.

And you know what? I think it paid off.

And our motley crew set drum tracks to tape in high spirits for the rest of the evening.
