So You Want To Be A Rock ‘N’ Roll Star…

M U S I C     M O N D A Y 

Today’s post asks you to really use your imagination. If you love music as much as I do, perhaps you’ve given some thought as to what you might name your band if you ever had one. What instrument would you play? Would you be lead vocals? Lastly, if you could hand-pick famous band members, who would be in your band? Nothing is off limits — you could choose musicians that have died. We’ll bring them back for this little exercise.

I know these will be difficult questions for most of you — probably not for Guapola or John Philips since I’m pretty sure they think about this stuff often, and by often, I mean daily. I thought it might be fun to suspend reality, just for a moment, and pretend to have real musical abilities/talent. I feel like it’s safe to assume that we all, at one time or another, held a hairbrush or spoon to simulate a microphone and performed our favorite songs in our bedrooms, doors probably locked. Some of you may have done this just last week, like I did… haha!

If you’ve been in a band, please share those details, I’d love to hear about them. I think we all would, right?

So without further ado, I’ll start.

The name of my band would be That Girl. I came up with the name when I remembered that I wanted to be Ann Marie (Marlo Thomas) from the TV show “That Girl” when I was young. (Minus her boyfriend Donald — I never really liked his hair.) I think it’s catchy and sort of retro-y.

  • Guitar – Jack White, George Harrison
  • Bass – Paul McCartney
  • Drums – Charlie Watts
  • Vocals – Naturally I’ll choose myself
  • Backing Vocals – Cat Stevens

Obviously my choices are pretty awesome. Simply, my band would be amazing. Here are a few of my band members…
