Led Zeppelin’s Song Remains the Same or my mom calling me from the living room?

Led Zeppelin’s Song Remains the Same or my mom calling me from the living room

Whenever I used to listen to Song Remains the Same growing up, I’d often have head phones on for optimal volume and the song gets to that part after he goes “Everything that’s small, has to grow…And it’s gonna grow, push push” and then there’s like Robert Plant yelling “yeah” but it’s kind of fading into the mix.  

Led Zeppelin's Song Remains the Same or my mom calling me from the living room?, faith in the fallen, FITF, ROCK!

And every time it sounded like my mom yelling my name from the other room and it would force me to press pause and yell, “What!?”

I was listening to the Song Remains the Same last week and I was reminded of that. 

Come see Faith in the Fallen perform in October and November:

Declaring Trouser Snakes

Declaring Trouser Snakes, Hawaii, Trouser Snakes, Faith in the Fallen, BewareDeclaring Trouser Snakes

When declaring vegetables and animals upon entry to the State of Hawaii, I think it’s pretty funny to declare a Trouser Snake.   But the state of Hawaii doesn’t find that funny at all.    I learned that the hard way.  I still thought it was pretty funny though.

The Magic of Dobbertin

The Magic of Dobbertin#themagicofdobbertin, Faith in the Fallen, The Magic of Dobbertin

A brief retelling of the Magic of Dobbertin touching an every day life…

It was July 16th.  Less then a week before he would be married.  As we sat and briefly discussed the A/V for the event, I said, “I can always bring my wireless mic as backup.” 

“You know what?  Yes.  You should. Just as a back up.” 

And I dutifully wrote my note.  Little did he know, he had sprinkled his Dobbertin magic.

It had been almost 4 weeks since I had lost my keys. It’s okay.  For some reason I have two key rings with almost the same keys on them, so I could still get in and out of everywhere, but it did cause me to annoyingly have to request my wife’s key to get into her car on an almost daily basis.   What was frustrating was, I had just lost them 10  weeks prior.  And had found them five weeks prior before losing them again…What was going to happen?  The future uncertain.  My path blurred.

FITF Band News

Faith in the Fallen has shows coming up.  We just confirmed September 9th in Gilman, IL with Skinwalker.  More details to come.

We’ve confirmed Friday Oct 13 at Q Bar Darien.  

Working to confirm some August.

Listen to Faith in the Fallen

It was the night before the event and talking with the A/V person I offered to bring my wireless mic as a backup (as was requested by Dobbertin).  “Sure.  Probably won’t need it.” 

“Yeah, you’re probably right.”

It was the day of the event and I was preparing to depart.   As I looked through my notes, I saw, ‘Bring Wireless Mic…as back up’– just as he requested.   The Magic cut through any wall of uncertainty and doubt.  I walked downstairs to grab and pack my Wireless Mic case.    Stepping towards it I noticed the case unzipped.   I opened the top.  My keys were sitting there inside of my wireless mic case. 


Taking it as a further sign I brought the case with me to the big event.   I looked at the AV set up.  Although we had the wireless mic, the mic stand did not have the correct size clip.   Could we get by?  Yes.  But there was no need.  Because inside my wireless mic case, was a clip. I walked to my car and accessed the clip. 



I’ve heard him whisper…”Listen to Faith in the Fallen
