…Or, for the non-French speaking among us, “The more things change, the more things stay the same.” Aside from being used in a somewhat obscure Rush song, this phrase has always stuck with me because it seems that you can almost always find some way it’s true, no matter where you are in life.
My friends in high school used to tell me that this is a “bummer of a way to look at life, dude”, but I’ve never thought so. I’ve always interpreted it as a positive – no matter what upheaval you go through, at the end of the day, you’ll go back to the things that anchor you to who you are in life.
As usual, this is pretty relevant to Division. In this case, the return of Scott as our vocalist was the catalyst for a conversation that, quite frankly, surprised the crap out of me. The culmination of that conversation is as big of a surprise to me as it will be to some of you:
Division would like to announce the return of Dan Plunkett as our bassist. Dan was originally with us from 1997 through 2005, and he appears on the “Ascension to Eternity” and “Trinity” CDs. He left for health reasons, and as those issues are behind him now, we’re glad to have him back. We should be debuting the new band configuration at shows this summer, and have some new music downloadable for you, as well.
Of course, this just adds to the conundrum we’ve been facing since Scott’s return – who actually is the “new guy”. This is more important than you think, since the “new guy” is the one that traditionally gets all the verbal harassment at rehearsal…
I guess I’ll just have to harass them all!
