Watching Legends Live! (And Why You Should Do It) 

On a hot, muggy, Tuesday night in Atlanta we got to experience an amazing show. Not everyone is going to get a chance to see some of the greatest guitar players of all time, but we saw Jeff Beck and Buddy Guy on the same night!

If you don't know their names stop reading right now and go listen to them.
Jeff Beck - There and Back
Buddy Guy - Live at Red Rocks

If you are still reading that must mean you know who they are! (or you just watched some videos)... 
Either way that gets us super pumped, because if you dig them and you like us, we know you love good rock n roll. Which is what we try to play all the damn time. 

Getting to see them was amazing! It was similar to catching the Rolling Stones or Elton John this year. Now you might ask, "Why is the band going to see all these old artists? Why not new bands?"
Well the answer is, "We do both!" We love seeing the music our parents jammed out, just as much as the music of our youth, and just as much as the bands we love that are modern now. So here is a list of bands that we love, maybe you've heard them or maybe not, but give em a listen. And who knows you might be watching a legend live, before they reach their legendary status.

NEW MUSIC - That kicks ass!
Stokeswood - Our Streets
The Future Babes - Dazed
Five Shot Jack - El Paso
Father John Misty - Real Love Baby
Leon Bridges - Smooth Sailing
St. Vincent - Digital Witness

OLDER MUSIC - That still kicks ass, but you unfortunately can't see live anymore...
INXS - Elegantly Wasted
David Bowie - The Next Day 
Prince - Musicology 
White Stripes - The Denial Twist (maybe one day...)

The Songwriting Process For Greco 

Our process is a very organic recipe, but generally these steps happen, not always in order but they are there:
  1. Inspiration & First Notes
  2. Practice, Rewrites, & Bitching
  3. Ego
  4. Fans
Inspiration & First Notes: Our songs come from a bunch of places; we might hear a piece we love, read a book, see a movie, or experience a completely out of control incredible woman for a few weeks (listen to Magic). Sometimes Zach writes a piano piece or Josh will come up with a guitar riff. Or Sebastian might have come up with lyrics about drinking & women (clearly a staple for us). Maybe Gab was kicking out a new drum groove. Either way we start putting it together and see where it goes.

Practice: Once we have an idea down, we play whatever parts we have written at rehearsal. Often times we start a song and by the end it is so changed and completely reworked that maybe a few lines or the key of the song stays the same. We sometimes argue about notes

  • "Let's go D-G-A" - Zach
  • "No that's too formulaic." - Gab
  • "It works, that's why it's a fucking formula!" - Zach
  • "Let's do both then!" - Sab

The big secret for us is that nothing is sacred and no part is too good to not get better or get thrown out. The lyrics get reworked, the riffs get changed, sometimes we make the verse a chorus and the chorus goes in the trash. A big part of our process is that we always take the time to record and to listen to it again and again, to see if it is where we want to go, or if it is something new. 

Ego: A huge shout-out to our older brother Johann. He has helped us write some great songs, but more importantly he helped us learn to reflect and change our songs without taking it personally. We all have natural swagger and braggadocious attitudes, but we keep them in check when it comes to writing songs. If the Beatles or the Stones could write a bad song we know we could, so we will do everything we can for that not to happen. It sometimes is the hardest part about writing a song; you write a piece you really dig, or a whole song that you dig, but it doesn't work out. It doesn't flow, so it goes in the trash. Maybe to be recycled, maybe to get reworked, or maybe it is gone for good.

Fans: The most important part of our songwriting is you. Once we have a song down, we play it for fans. Whether that is debuting it at a show, or playing it a private rehearsal show for some kick ass fans, (and yes we totally want our fans to come check those out, if you are interested hit us up on FACEBOOK or TWITTER) or playing that in a car. If you guys can't get into it; if it doesn't make you feel something. If you don't want to Sing. Dance. Sweat. Sex. to the music, then fuck it we will write a new song.

Our Lawyer Made Us Change The Name Of This Blog So We Wouldn't Get Sued. 

Wouldn't that be an excellent name for a blog? We clearly don't blog a lot. In fact, other than being bad at taking photos and abstaining from alcohol, we are probably the worst when it comes to blogging. But fear not! We now have a new band house mom who will be making sure we blog appropriately, brush our teeth, wear protection, and always get to school on time. So if you read our blog feeds or twitter or facebook or instagram or some random website that spools lies about us, we promise to make it easier for you to get all the good Greco that you want. 

Also we are looking for some more local Atliens to join us for our two upcoming video shoots. All people 21+ can reach out to us via the CONTACT page on the site.

David Bowie: A Remembrance  

It took us a minute to really put into words how we felt about Bowie. Not just his passing, but what he really meant to us.

Zach - As a child I always loved coming home when my father was off work early. He would have the doors and windows open blasting music out across the neighborhood. He'd often let my brother and I choose the music, and my favorite album to put on was Changesbowie. I'd pretend I was alone in "Space Oddity" and dream about "Life on Mars". I didn't see a difference in the sci-fi I read as a kid and what Bowie sang. He was everything I wanted to be. He was his own man, his own culture. His impact is so lasting, because he was known for his artistry. He is the closest I'll ever come to understanding what Picasso or Warhol did to culture. I did get to see him as a child, during the Sound+Vision tour my parents took me to see him, and I thought how cool is it that he would sing or play the saxophone and then step off stage and have a smoke, and let the band just jam.

Music Midtown 2015 

It was that time of year again in Atlanta when musical acts come together for Atlanta's biggest music festival: Music Midtown. This year was unlike previous years, because the line-up consisted of some of rock and roll's biggest legends from Elton John and Van Halen to Lenny Kravitz and Billy Idol. We had a blast running into friends and fans. We might've drank more $11 beers than needed but it was worth it. Here are some photos from our festivities.
