I just posted a new song on www.patreon.com/krislager! It's a live version of I Got The Devil and here's what I got to say about it:
This one is an interesting one for me, friends...
I don't want to say too much, but yet I want to say something.
Let's just say:
I'm in a nostalgic mindset these past few days. Mainly because of some big changes that have been forced upon me and the band... Changes that at this moment now seem inevitable and a long time coming. I'm not gonna lie, It's been a rough week for me personally and it's the music and some good friends that have helped me get through and inspire me to keep going.
So, the other night after our show at Big Rock Candy Mountain I opened up KLB's last live recording on my computer. A recording from The Rybin's Lake Party where we played on Sept. 11th. And when 'I Got The Devil' came out of my headphones I knew this was gonna be the next 'Patreon Exclusive Song'. The timing, the cathartic feeling of playing & hearing this song again, and the performance itself made me want to share this with you.
As for this song: I wrote this in my early 20's when I probably partied too hard and I didn't realize the consequences of my actions. Spiritually, I could feel the damage. I knew right and wrong, but for some reason I would (and still to this day) go astray. Our spirits are tricky things aren't they. We just want to feel good. We just want everything to be okay. So much so that we'll do almost anything to chase away the ghosts and the demons that haunt us.
The booze, the drugs, and the sex doesn't make the devil disappear. In fact more often than not it only gives life to and feeds this beast living inside all of us. It's just waiting for us to feed it...
One of my favorite stories about 'The Devil':
It was 2016 and we were playing at The Chautauqua Hills Blues Festival. When we got done with our 'Feel Good/ Celebrate Life/ Spiritual Revival' type of show that we like to do an amazing blues harmonica player followed us. His name is Jason Ricci and if you haven't heard him play the harmonica you should check him out. He's phenomenal, and if you have you know what I'm talking about.
Right out of the gate almost immediately upon hitting the stage he said something to the effect of 'I ain't about all that hippie dippy, feel good, happy crap. I play music about hookers, drugs, and the devil. Then proceeded to play a ripping harmonica driven blues groove.
I thought it was hilarious on many levels because it was definitely a switch up in vibes and it was palpable. So, to address this difference was funny to me and the fact that it made such an impression on him was even funnier. (In fact, when we played with ZZ Top even Billy Gibbons made reference to this same difference between our vibes and them playing 'the devil's music'.)
So, I'm standing backstage next to our bassist Tom Murnan (Tommy 3D) and after Jason said the comment about playing music about hookers, drugs, and the devil I lean over to Tom and say, 'What is the Devil?'
and this is my favorite part of the story: Tom leans over to me and says:
That always stuck with me... What a disguise... what a disguise... lol
