I’m in a “side-project” type band with my friend Dave (one of the many Daves I know) called “Saint Mulligan.” I don’t think I’ve mentioned that project before… We’re in the “demoing” stage right now, but there’s some decent potential. It’s being run by Dave as more or less a revolving-door/writing project. Sometimes the line-up may feature one guy…sometimes another…but same basic setlist. Similar to what I was doing with “Wayne and the Merry Band of Freaks” many moons ago, for the handful of you that remember that.
Dave asked me to play at a birthday party for mutual friend a couple of months ago. I did, and we used my speakers and whatnot—maybe the real reason I’m in the band, ha ha? During the evening, I was chatting with Dave by one of the speakers. I casually picked up and set down my drink a few times and when I looked down, this is what I saw…
Now, is it just me, or is that EXACTLY the rune that represents Led Zeppelin’s John Bonham? It was completely unintentional, and I don’t think I could have gotten it that perfect even if I’d planned it! Dave and I were both amazed and took pictures, and I said at the time I’d put it on my blog…then I didn’t…until now! I finally pulled it off my phone, and here it is for your enjoyment.
All in all, we took it as a good omen for the band. 🙂
