Popped over to one of my favorite melodic rock websites yesterday, MelodicRock.com, to find out the latest news on some of my favorite bands. Big, big melodic rock fan here. When I saw a news bit about Final Frontier finally updating their website, I immediately slid on over to see what was going on. New album in 2005! WOO HOO! Being a big fan of their second album, "The Second Wave" (I do like their first -- "The First Wave" -- too, but not as much), I'm really looking forward to the new release.
But the thing that got me all drooly (is that even a word? Guess it is now!) was the video they'd put up on the site for "Lydia", from "The Second Wave". I've seen pictures of Rob Moratti, I've listened to him sing over and over, but I'd never seen him move. Wow. Still having that female moment.
If you've been following my blog, you also know that lately I've been obsessed with the voice of Danny Vaughn of Vaughn/Tyketto fame. (Matter of fact, he's helped me immensely with writing the love scenes in my current story. He doesn't know it, though. *wink*) Not wanting him to feel left out (*snort*), I pulled out and watched his video for "Nothing At All". Both the song and video are included on his most recent project, From the Inside/From the Inside.
Hence, my total female moment.
Yes, I'm too old to be drooling over rock stars. So, to borrow from "Almost Famous," it's the music. It's all about the music. And the voices. Definitely the voices.
(In case you're curious, all the albums I mentioned in this entry are available at great prices from NEH Records. I've spent a fortune on CDs with these guys, and I highly recommend them. They also have sound clips available for the albums, so you can preview before you buy. And no, I don't work for them. I'm just very very very happy with their service.)
