It's a low-key kind of day for me. I had a lovely breakfast, spent a million dollars on groceries, took a long walk and I'm about to plant myself on the couch to watch hours of football. There isn't too much going on in the music world right now. I feel like the only thing anyone cares about is politics. The big Lincoln - Douglas, er, Clinton - Trump debate is tomorrow night, so that's all the news is focusing on. And even the music news is filled with artists giving their (basically worthless) commentary on the state of affairs in this country right now.
All that said, I'll just leave you with this: Stryper is apparently taking a hiatus after their 30th anniversary tour. This doesn't surprise me, in fact most bands take a break after a new album and/or tour. The real news about this hiatus comes from within the statement that the band members will take time off "to think and pray about the direction of the band going forward." This doesn't exactly sound positive. My advice is to go see Stryper live if you haven't had the chance. In fact, that advice applies to every band we love. I fear we're losing opportunities to do so.
I'm going to a wedding Saturday evening but I should be home in time to catch Metallica's set. I'm looking forward to this for sure. A concert in the comfort of my own home that doesn't cost a dime!
