Hell Of A Band

"You know that scene at the very beginning of Nightmare Before Christmas" said The Dark Prince to me last month, "the one where Pumpkin Jack comes back to his Halloween World after a successful nights Halloweening and they have a concert". I replied that i was aware of it.
"That's what we need here" he stated, leaning forward from his throne and handing me an order to round up the best musicians presently residing in Hell for a Halloween Night Concert.
Never one to turn down a man armed with a pitchfork and horns, i set about getting together the best band from not so nice dead musicians.
Bass guitar was easy, girlfriend murderer Sid Vicious. Luckily he was on his way to Michael Jackson's house and the paedophile was more than happy to join the band as lead singer.
Finding a drummer was proving difficult, especially as hammer wielding mother killer Jim Gordon was still alive but there was only one man to hand the lead guitar to, Lead Belly. Never a man to talk to his relatives when he could shove a knife in them instead.
Still leaves me struggling to find a drummer so i guess i will have to fit a drum machine until a notorious drummer turns up down there.
First song up, Knocking on Heavens Door. Beelzebub will love that.

Umm.. Notorious dead drummer? Maybe Keith Moon can man the sticks for a bit while you ruminate. My vote would have to be for Ola Brunkert, the late drummer of Abba, who died in a freak "gardening" accident. He is most definitely in hell, just because of Abba being Abba

Drummers seem to be the goody goody of bands. I did look at Keith Moon but all i could seem to find on him was throwing TV's out the window which isn't really hell worthy.
I would certainly consider Mr Brunkert for his crimes against music as a short term gap filler until Jim Gordon puts in an appearance downstairs.

Too right about Keith. He was just a playful alcoholic, Dear Boy...

Surely any 'they're definitely in hell now' band should include that disgraceful old punk, GG Allin (he made Sid Vicious look like Celine Dion) and Genesis P-Orridge.

Allin certainly, he can share the lead with Jackson, but i will have to google Genesis P-Orridge. He/she is a new one on me.

I wasn't aware Allin was a drummer as well as a front man. Couldn't have been easy defecating while trying to keep time on the top hat.
That's the band complete then.
