The photo shoot took about 5 hours. I don't know if that's long or short, but it seemed like an eternity. I got a ride with our drummer who fortunately had to get up early for work the next day. This meant that we got first dibs on our individual shots and we got out of there at a decent time. When we left though, several of the guys still had to do their shots. I'm guessing they were there for another 2 or 3 hours.
Now might be a good time to tell the most interesting part of this tale. Our singer and lead guitarist had this idea of getting white doves for the photo shoot about 3 weeks ago. I blew it off as over the top and something they would never follow through with. Well I'll be damned if they didn't arrive on scene with a cage and 3 domesticated pigeons(domesticated pigeons are all white). A lot of the night was spent caressing these pigeons and training them to the point of where they would stay where we would put them, flap their wings when we wanted them to, ect.
To me, the whole experience was over the top. However, I'm one who would much rather rock than worry about these stupid affairs. I guess it's good that we have some people who think about the image though and try to make us look professional. I reckon it's important. I just hope that if this band takes off I don't have to spend the rest of my career playing Dr. Doolittle.
