Dream Reality


Lead Guitarist Rich Hunter (in 2006) : I actually got the first 2 Solstice IV the morning I left but didn't have a chance to listen to all of it, so I just had a couple of those melody riffs in my head all week. Now of course I've listened to all of them, and I have several observations. First of all, it brought back memories of me sitting next to Steve on the piano bench for HOURS learning that stuff, those intense learning sessions proved to be a good foundation for my future endeavors (memorizing classical guitar pieces). Secondly, I don't know how we remembered all those complex arrangements. To put a little hindsight along one of your blog comments about shifting gears every time someone told us that it was 'too this' or 'too that', If we had not listened to anyone and just played Steve's stuff live anywhere we could, and as much as we could, I'm sure we would have developed some 'chatter' and more people than ourselves would have started to notice. But as usual, we never said "f@#$ them, let's go play a couple free gigs here or there, bars, parks, clubs, schools, where ever", [instead] we said 'Yeah, they're right, we wanna get signed, we wanna make it'. Well as we all know by now, most bands don't 'make it', especially from a practice studio. Oh, well. I'm gonna give all that stuff another listen tonight. Musicianship wise, I feel that incarnation of Solstice was pretty goddam good.
