You may have read this already, but Happy Boy drummer Kory Smith is injured and will not be able to make the reunion show at Tedstock.

Ted has already laid out a few options, one of which involves recruiting a new drummer and getting him/her up to speed in a month or so.

I made the suggestion to morph the set into a "Brain Shivers" bit. Obviously the whole notion of Happy Boy getting back together and cranking up the old machine is already somewhat busted, and what's a reunion without all of the original members?

Of course, Brain Shivers has never played live, but the songs aren't too hard and Ted and I could certainly do a lot of practicing between now and Oct. 30. Assuming Machold will recreate his studio magic live, and perhaps with the help of George Vitray, we could make a show of it.

Personally, I think this would be great fun. It's a very different band than Happy Boy, and it would be a great chance to try out some new songs (the Happy Boy stuff is several years old at best) and play with some new people.

Let's hear your thoughts...

Paul is a very good friend of mine, we've been in two bands together and I enjoy playing with him in a band, that is what I think.
