Getting the Band Back Together

I spent Easter weekend in scenic West Chester, PA with friends, and the main event was without a doubt Guitar Hero 2. Take 1 plastic guitar controller, add 2 cups of face-melting, soul-shredding rock'n'roll and bring to a boil...

Our band Cokfarm Kokfarm did remarkably well, progressing from high school gyms to playing Stonehenge, where we were carried away by a UFO after a triumphant encore rendition of Freebird.

Here's a few selected clips from our rockstar weekend:

Carry On My Wayward Son - Kansas
Killing in the Name of - Rage Against the Machine
Cherry Pie - Warrant
War Pigs - Black Sabbath
Psychobilly Freakout - Reverand Horton Heat (video)

That last song from the Rev. Heat was probably the most taxing song of the bunch, requiring supreme effort from lead guitarist Ben "Papa Cokfarm" Smith. Which made it all the more humiliating when this clip of a virtuoso 8 year old popped up on YouTube:

UPDATE -- Here's a picture I stole from pop-o-matic

Hey man, get it right, it's Kokfarm with a "K"! If you weren't such a good player i'd considered polling the other 8 Kokfarm members to ask for your resignation or at least a suspension.
