Rocking with the Rough Drafts

As most people know, I love music so whenever the opportunity to work with a band or concert promoter pops up, I jump right on it.  So I was more than excited when Ann Grove from Logical Writing Solutions Inc approached me about doing a concert tee for this year’s Society for Technical Communication conference in Chicago, featuring a special performance by a band called The Rough Drafts.  The Rough Drafts consists of a loose group of technical writers (with musical backgrounds) who get together and perform once a year at the annual STC event.  Now, as anyone who has ever been in a band will tell you, having your own t-shirt with tour dates listed on the back, is all part of the dream of hitting the big time, along with record deals, limousines, screams of adoration from fans and a jar filled with only red M&Ms backstage.  It’s both a milestone and a cool memento to stash away in your box of memories. Although, sadly, I missed the performance, I heard nothing but good things and, judging by the live shots I’ve seen, a good time was had by all.  To quote the late, great Carl Perkins, “Rave on children, I’m with ya”
