I'm young again!!!

This is a quote from a recent Mercurial Rage write up.

"Mercurial Rage aren't British; they were born during the era they are referencing" See full article here.

That meant that we were born during the height of Depeche Mode and new wave. I'm the oldest member of the band, so that officially takes at least 10 years off my age. Maybe more if you put the era in the mid 1980's. In reality I was born during the era of SuperGlam-T Rex, David Bowie, and The Sweet, baby. A sexy time in it's own right. But I don't mind the age demotion. One question? Does this printed statement only make my alter ego Christopher Church 25, or do I get to be young with the gang? My real identity is only credited as a lyric writer, not really a full band member, but I think I should be ,ahem, grandfathered in. Ya know? Compromise. I get to say I'm 28. That sounds good to me. The only problem is at 28 I can't continue to run for President. I may have to switch my myspace profile to Chris Hill for Congress.

Oh hell, who am I kidding. I'm wearing an argyle cardigan in our music video. I'm obviously somebody's dad. Speaking of being a dad, the other day Kirk told me to play guitar while he played drums. After a while he got confused and threw his arms in the air and shouted, "Stop the music!"

Oh crap. Does this mean I married a teenager?!

"Stop! Stop the music!"

Bel's a cradle robber! ;)

"They took a great thing and made it better!" Very way freaking cool write up. The show this weekend is going to be the most! I can't believe I won't be there to see it. Boo.

So, wait. If you are 28, that means I am 28 too. Yes?

xoxo

You are both named on the record so you can both take years off if you want.
