Rock On

So we were watching Dennis Leary's rock comedy SEX&DRUGS&ROCK&ROLL t'other night. The plot of this episode involved Gigi firing her band, the Assassins, and bringing on a new band of younger musicians to take their place.

The name of new young (fictional) band was... wait for it... Red Wedding.

Sooner or later, everything comes around in a big circle, doesn't it?

In 1983, when I wrote my rock novel THE ARMAGEDDON RAG, the name of my own (fictional) band was... wait for it... the Nazgul.



Rock on, friends.
