I’d like to know if any of you folks are into the Blood Brothers, because I know I miss them and I’m not the least bit ashamed to say it.
I am also glad they’ve decided to reunite for some shows, and hope they’ll be playing more shows, including one here, in New York.
Says the Blood Brothers’ vocalist and guitarist Jordan Billie in a new interview:
“For me personally, it’s the opportunity to reconnect with the guys in the band and play those songs again. The guys were a huge part of my life. We grew up together. I’ve known Johnny since I was twelve and the opportunity to be in the same room with them all again was something I’ve looked forward to. And playing live has always been my favorite part of being in the band. So when the opportunity was presented to us, personally the decision was easy.”
If you don’t know the Blood Brothers, and you consider yourself open-minded, check out the song at the end of this post, which is one of my favorites.
“The two questions were ‘would this be fun’ and ‘do people want to see this.’ The first question was a no brainer; like I said, playing live has always been my favorite part. The second question is a bit more of a gamble. I obviously hope people want to see us, but we’ll see. I also didn’t want to wait too long as I wanted to be able physically to do it. I don’t know that I’ll be able to flop around on stage like I’m having seizure at forty-five.”
More shows are possible, he adds, but there’s no chance a new record is in the works.
