Drama, the suicide of original drummer Derrick Plourde a couple months ago, was the catalyst for Joey Cape's inspiration to write this 9th full-length of my (once) holy Lagwagon. And never in my 37-year old life have I been moved as much by music and especially these lyrics as with these dozen songs.
Drama, the suicide of original drummer Derrick Plourde a couple months ago, was the catalyst for Joey Cape's inspiration to write this 9th full-length of my (once) holy Lagwagon. And never in my 37-year old life have I been moved as much by music and especially these lyrics as with these dozen songs that are so much more than an epitaph on a great musician's grave. For me, while I never actually knew the guy, it's not the homage to Plourde that really touched me, but we all are pretty aware of what sorrow an act like this causes to all people close to him. And that's what comes through in these songs as far as I'm concerned; in the first place the unbelief, the questions unresolved and the doubts that clearly haunt Joey, but also the comfort he's offering to Plourde's relatives and his attempt to rid them of their guilty feelings. I'm not an emotional guy really, but these lyrics really gave me the shivers at times.
