So the last few days, I’ve been going down my personal rabbit hole. I recently pulled out my cassette tapes and found an old stereo with a tape deck and rediscovering a ton of old music. It almost feels like a time capsule of sorts. Tapes that were ejected and haven’t been thought about in 20+ years. One of the cooler elements with tapes – are my mix tapes I’ve received from friends. Mix tapes were special. They were thought out and actually took effort to make. It meant a lot to receive one. And now listening to them, I really appreciate the the flow. During one of those listens, there was a track from the band The Cult – She Sells Sanctuary. Great song.
Check out this live version from last year. The Cult.. still have it.
I was thinking I remember seeing a Premier Guitar Rig Rundown a while back with the guitarist Billy Duffy and I wanted to re-explore. The Cult was one of those weird bands that crossed a couple of genres for me. Back in the late 80s, it fit the vibe of ‘alternative’, yet it was also the relm of ‘metal’ in a sense. I remember The Cult opening up for Metallica back in ’89. Billy Duffy was always a monster on guitar, so it was cool to dive back into what he was up to.
Check out the Rig Rundown:
