In the Air Tonight

In Friends, Musicians, Pop Culture on July 6, 2008 at 8:45 am


Brian Rutland, my first drummer (no, he didn’t die the death of a Spinal Tap drummer) is now a pastor in Littleton, CO, and sent me this clip. We used to “cover” Phil Collins’s “In the Air Tonight” using lyrics I rewrote from more of an eschatological perspective (“I can feel Him coming in the air tonight” – yeah, it sounds hokey, but it so worked live). The kids (and Brian) would go nuts when he came in with the big drums, and guitarist Dan Madison and I rocked out with him for minutes on end. I laughed long and hard at this one.

  1. That is too, too funny! I so remember you doing that. It did work. We all had a big time. It seems like a lifetime ago. Were we cool then?
