Creatures of the Night…

I was thinking about a band whose members were all classical movie monsters. Monstrels, if you will.

Vlad, the vampire, on lead vocals,
Rico, the gill-man, on guitar,
Imhotep, the mummy, on bass,
Talbot, the wolfman, on drums,
and Frankie, the construct, on keys.

Maybe Igor could have a guest spot playing bells?

It’s not a new concept, of course. There’s Lord Raptor, the zombie rock star in the DarkStalkers series of games. There’s Michael Vega‘s Monsters of Rock one-shot from Radio Comix. There are plenty of real-life monster-themed bands like Alice Cooper, KISS, GWAR, and Lordi. There are probably plenty of others I’m forgetting or just unaware of.

There is nothing new under the sun. But the idea still amuses me.
