"Where are Sam and Cal?" Danny asked whilst him and Frank walked down the hallway to the elevator.
"They should be setting up downstairs," Frank replied pressing the button to go down, "Are you ready for this?"
The doors opened. Danny looked at Frank then stepped into the elevator, Frank soon followed.
"Of course I am," he said, "Why wouldn't I be?"
"Alright then," spoke Frank as the elevator doors closed, "Just saying right."
They got off at their floor and found their way to the stage in the tavern. Sam was plugging a few jacks into the sound control system. Cal was strumming his bass to check that it was all working. Frank walked over and picked up his electric guitar and began strumming then looked over to Sam and nodded.
"So how is it coming along?" Danny asked Sam as he stepped up onto the stage.
"It's nearly done," Sam replied, "Frank come and grab this pedal board"
"Here I got it," said Danny leaning over and taking the board, "Just plug it in here?"
Frank nodded as Danny knelt down to hookup the pedal board, Frank handed him the jack from the guitar so he could plug it into the board.
"Sam here catch this." Danny shouted throwing the other end of the cable to Sam.
Sam grabbed it and plugged it into the main sound control system.
"We all set for a sound check?" asked Sam taking his place on his drum throne.
"Yea," said Cal, "You guys ready?"
Frank nodded and Danny removed the mic from the stand.
"Alright just let's just do Loving like a Monster from the top guys?" called out Danny.
Everyone else nodded and the song begun.
The double bass pedal kicked in accompanied by a smooth bass line.
The night is dark and I'm losing sight.
There's just one thing I wanna do tonight
Drums get louder, a heavy beat is cast.
The guitar gets going with some crazy sweeps.
I wanna be loving like a monster!
I wanna fuck you like a pornstar baby!
Loving like a monster baby,
A monster baby,
All instruments drop out and guitar goes into a complex shred solo.
I got you on my mind tonight,
Some would say it's the devil's plight.
Drum and Bass are left to carry the song.
When they song finished Sam gave the okay for the sound check. They were ready for the gig. But was Danny? His head had been buzzing with strange dreams lately, memories of a time before this, when he was what he used to be, what he's been trying to forget.
The lights dimmed suddenly and some people in the tavern gave their attention to the band. Danny stepped forward to the microphone.
"Hey everybody," he looked nervous but he could do this, "We're 'Stilettos and Stratocasters' and this is 'Monster Love'"
His face suddenly straightened as the instruments began playing.
This was it.
No turning back.
