The other day, one of our most enduring friends, Geoff Itz, sent me a video via Twitter. He had covered a song from our last album.
I showed it to a few of my band mates and, universally, the first question was: how did he figure out the words? I wanted to feign insult at the idea Geoff cribbing my Tool-like melody but I was too shocked. “Uh. Remember, the CD came with a book? A literal book…with all of the words…and a story?”
Needless to say, Geoff killed it on this one.
Here’s Geoff’s “El Cid” (and the original in video form, in case you missed it).
