Sean's Stories

I spent most of yesterday playing Guitar Hero III on the Xbox. By the evening, my fingers were aching from playing the strings (or fret buttons) too much.

Who would have thought that playing with what is effectively a plastic toy guitar in-front of an imaginary crowd could be so much fun? While playing the likes of Paint it Black by The Rolling Stones and The Killers’ When You Were Young, you actually believe, for a short space of time, that you are actually in the band, sending thousands of screaming fans mad, like a rock legend.

I am still a beginner, and am working my way through on the easiest difficulty setting. This setting is played at a slower pace and only uses 3 of the 5 fret keys. The crowd are also a lot more forgiving for the mistakes I seem to make while learning.

Later that night, I got torn away from my Gibson guitar, and taken to the pub for the evening. I only had a few pints, but being the rock legend that I am, I should have drank a bottle of vodka, taken cocaine in the toilet, before hiring and trashing a hotel room.

I will carry on updating my blog with updates about my rock career, although if things keep going as they are, you’ll probably read about my success in Kerrang magazine.

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
