Bumped from the band

We gave my Husband "Rock Band " for his Birthday yesterday. I was super excited, felt like my dreams have come true....to be in a BAND! Now I have been doing a lot of research TV watching lately. Not the Discovery Channel or CNN type cause I'm in Germany and we get BBC and MTV . I'm talking "Rock of Love" Bret Michaels and his quest for love third times the charm! So naturally I franticly dug through my closet yesterday looking for my mini skirt and stilettos, we all know a rocker outfit is a must.  



So after our Birthday dinner and CAKE it was time to get down to BAND practice! It's my first time playing "ROCK BAND" live.....again a DREAM come true. SO they stick me on DRUMS, which I can totally do! Tried the throwing the sticks in the air ...it's actually quite hard so instead I tried just hitting them together over my head which I totally rocked!! Drums are some what harder then I dreamed of , failing according to Wii enough times that I was no longer in that BAND set! WHATEVER! I needed more wine so it worked for me. 

Next set I insisted on showing the other BAND members my singing skills! SONG choice Duran, Duran Hungry like a Wolf.....HA perfect I've already been singing that all week! So we are rocking the HAUS.....and Wii has the nerve to fail me again. And I'm all WHAT there has to be a singer HELLO!!

Needless to Say I've been bumped and am now the roadie! Wonder if it's too late to cancel my eBay order of colorful bandannas?

Rock on, Frau! I'm on vocals. Can't play the guitar worth a lick. No pun intended! :)

Oh how fun! What a great night! And what a great present! Happy Birthday to your husband! I love when families spend time together. It just warms my heart : )

Kat said...

My husband is a guitar hero...in his own mind. Actually he is quite good at both Rock Band and Guitar Hero. I stick to the singing.

I'm also the drummer of the group. It's great

Allison said...

I don't think I would make a very good head banging rock star, but it sounds like you had lots of fun.

Menopausal New Mom said...

You guys sound like you're having a ball with that thing! Hungry like the wolf, now that's a good song! Do a video to post, PLEASE!!!

Mrs. Lovely said...

I've never played Rock Band, but I bet I would get kicked out too, lol.

American in Norway said...

Are you still loving the Rock Band? I was going to get it for the "kids" for Christmas...

How are you liking Breman? Our airport has cheap flights there...Ryan air... is it an OK weekend get away place?

Lee the Hot Flash Queen said...

That is so funny! We have it and I have no clue how to play it!! I hear it's fun...if only I could figure the dang thing out!

Joyce said...

LOL... I am a visual person as you might know so you can imagine how much I laughed reading your post today. Hey Kathy anyway of doing a youtube of your band. Pick a name and keep the order. A band is needs 3 members. Besides there is always Sophie to do a job. Have a rockin weekend. xo

Coffee with Cathy said...

But roadies have all the fun, you know! Sounds as if you all had a great time.

Deidra said...

Beth Adamson said...

You had me laughing so hard I actually snorted. You are so darn funny. I could totally see you rocking out. Thank goodness you did not have this game when we were in town visiting you. I do think this would make a great family Christmas card. Love to all

Suzy said...

That was SO funny!

My sister is in amazing shape and was at a friend's house doing Wii fit boxing and she said at the end of it, she thought she would DIE from how exhausted she was.

AND SHE WAS ONCE ON THE COVER OF MUSCLE AND FITNESS!!

Life Laugh Latte said...

It is so fun isn't it. One of my sons friends is a 6 year old girl that can play the drums on her own on Medium. I can't even do it on easy. Holly

Alice in Wonderland said...

Called over from Matty's to say Hi!
I got the WII Fit thing not long ago, and I love it! I want to try the Rock Band now! The Fit one is so funny that I can't do it for laughing! You know the sort of thing, where you stand on one leg and put your arms up in the air! What is wrong with my sense of balance? Or maybe it has something with my sense of humour!

preppyplayer said...

Practice makes perfect. I expect big things by the time Kev and I get there!

Ina in Alaska said...

Matty said...

Hey, at least you get to sleep with the lead guitar player.

Kwana said...

This sounds like so much fun. You rock. Happy belated birthday to you hubby. Now I'm singing Duran Duran you know. Love them.

Christine Forest, M.D. said...

No, don't cancel, get the bandanas and keep rocking. This is what rock is all about: freedom.

The Stiletto Mom said...

I killed it on Rock Band One until my 10 year old caught up with me. For Christmas, I'm getting him Tony Hawk Skateboarding for Wii. Probably I should take some film of me trying to pull that off...

Somer Love said...

I can totally picture you guys playing Rock band too funny!

Unknown Mami said...

You keep on rockin'!

Just a Plane Ride Away said...

My rock band chant: Save me! Somebody SAVE ME!

Failed again...

;-)

Lora said...

omg we bought Beatles Rockband on Friday and it was so much fun!
I like to sing, I fail miserably at the drums. I was born without rhythm.
I keep forgetting to "strum" the guitar so I'm always flunking out there too.

We had some friends over Saturday night, split a bottle of bourbon, and totally rocked the house. I loved it.

have fun with it!

foxy said...

Oh I just LOVE RockBand! I'm the drummer for our band too.... we're The Wet Wipes!

Thanks for helping to make my SITS day last week so special! Rock on, sitsta!
