My second year of law school I convinced my study group they needed to blow off steam by forming a band. Each of them had vast musical backgrounds and had basically quit their bands to go to law school. These were the kind of guys who got a group of carrels in the law library basement and played music and video games in between reading cases, writing papers, and outlining classes.
They finally agreed that if I got a bass, they would form a band. For my sake we picked a few three-chord punk songs to cover and met an hour or two each Saturday morning before studying. I wasn’t very good. In fact the guitarist was nice enough to come over a few times to run through our cover songs with me. We called ourselves “Supplemental Jurisdiction.”
It was a blast!
It is years later, the band broke up, and I am still not very good, but I still love it. So I started this blog.
