This train of thought lacks much-needed context unless I first tell you that I went and jammed with a band this afternoon. It's a classic rock band with the guitarist and bass player from my last band along with a drummer and keyboardist/guitarist. The whole thing went pretty well, so we'll see if it lasts.
So anyway, while we were talking about songs we'd like to do, I was reminded that for some reason, my brain likes to group bands in pairs. Usually they're similar in some way, but not always. Generally they're bands that I learned about at around the same time and occasionally it extends to confusing their songs.
Here are a few of the bands that are linked in my head for no readily apparent reason:
- Journey and Styx
- Foreigner and REO Speedwagon
- Extreme and Damn Yankees
- Candlebox and Tonic
- Poison and Cinderella
Does anyone else do this or is it just me?
