Josh used to be in a band. It was way back in his college days. His family has always been musical – in high school he played tuba. He taught himself bass and his best friend roped him into playing together. They started a small band they called Dead Lemon.
They named their band after a deceased fruit.
And now, thanks to the awesome powers of YesVideo, I can share a little clip with you here on my blog. I have to warn you, this was one of their first performances, so it is a bit rough. This was taken back in 2003 I think. Maybe it was 2002. The singer is the best friend that put the band together. And yes, they are on a flatbed trailer. It’s pretty awesome.
I am so glad that I was able to partner with YesVideo as an ambassador last year! Through that program I transferred two video tapes to DVD and digital copies. This post is also sponsored by YesVideo. I wanted to work with them again to show you how bloggers can now embed their memories in blog posts!
Josh had something to say about this band, by the way:
“At no time did I want to be in this band. I was just the only bass player they knew. And when I was in a professional cover band, I didn’t want to be in that one either. They roped me into it too.
And here is Dead Lemon doing a Billy Idol cover (enjoy!):
Yeah…they had fun, and that is what counts, right? And now I can say I married a guy in a band. I get 10 cool points for that. (Are cool points still a thing? They need to be. I need as many as I can get)
