You all have been wondering where Mister Bones has been, well we caught up with him recently at a concert…..HIS CONCERT! Wait…..what do you mean “Mister Bones who?”
About this creation
On stage is Mister Bones’ new Goth – Prog Metal band, The Boneheads! Let’s meet the band, shall we………” On the bass and vocals is Mister Bones. Bones formed the band to bring a new sound to the underworld, and make some cash of course; after all, he is greedy.” On lead guitar is one of Bones’ old friends from school, John Thomas Bone! John had been the guitar player in the wildly popular Doom Metal band Gzuz Brothel, until their zombie lead singer’s lower jaw fell off and shattered. John went on to try and market a line of relish, but John Thomas Relish never really took off, except in San Francisco. On the keyboards is the former keyboardist from the punk band Golden Star Shower, Carl Coccyx. Carl got a rather sordid reputation for crazy make-up, wild hair, and mooning his coccyx to the fans, but he sure can tickle the ivories! Keeping the beat on the drums is former jazz drummer Skullitor! He may look like a metal tough guy, but his passion is smooth jazz, go figure. Most recently he was in the Benny Boneman trio until Benny retired to a quiet life of haunting Leda Kat. The lovely lady singing lead female vocals is new sensation Vladis Volden! Mister Bones discovered this Norwegian beauty and her operatic voice in a rather odd way, but that is another story. Vladis is the only non-skeleton in the band, but that white skin is not make-up folks. The Boneheads know how to rock the crowd, their blend of gothic and progressive metal sends even the most undead fan into delirious bliss!” The sweet guitar riffs of John Thomas throw the crowd into a frenzy! You can’t lick John Thomas……well….. The crowd is really rocking tonight! Monsters, demons and humans are all dancing together to the haunting riffs of The Boneheads. The lights go down, the stage is set, Mister Bones breaks out in a sweat.
A backstage joker spiked his coke, while the dressing room was full of smoke
A crowd of fools got him high, now he's afraid he's gonna die….
Cause Vladis is glaring into his eyes……
He steps into the remaining light, the crowd go wild the band’s outa sight
Bones’ arms are held high in the sign of kiss my ass
The Bonehead’s signed a one night lease.
He struts, he strolls, his love is rock 'n' roll…………
He's the VETERAN UNDEAD ROCKER
(apologies to the Moody Blues)
Check for The Boneheads show times at an underworld venue near you!”
Dem Notes: This is just a little something to let everyone know where old Bones is and what he is doing these days. The Boneheads are currently touring Europe, but Bones hopes to return soon and get to the planning and building of his city. Until then, Spooky and I are in charge and it is all I can do to stop Spooky from posting a bunch of PG (read R) MOCs about overly dramatic teen boys who act like 7-year-old girls and their AFOL leader who acts like a 12-year-old spoiled girl. Until next time, Booner.
Editors Note: For those of you that forgot, Booner is not Mister Bones, he has flesh….yellow ABS flesh, but flesh.
Was it inspired by this MOC, or did we have the same idea at the same time?
Looks kind of like it :p
It looks really awesome! Good to see a new MOC from you!

What's the over/under on the number of people who think you're talking about me with that last line? And for the rest of the write up *snicker* Great to have you back man! ~ Chris.
5 to 1 amigo, same odds for the Moody Blues slapping me with a lawsuit.

Now you're going to tell me one of your songs is "20 eyes" or "Night of The Living Dead."
Plus, your base drum is too small.
All in all, a pretty cool build.
69 Eyes actually.....also the name of a darn fine band from LA.
Bass drum too small....ah, I really don't care, so let's say it is some electronic bass drum. (You will note Mister Bones' bass looks just like JT's guitar, so, we see I was not really going for realism in an undead skeleton band.)
Good to see you back in action! The band is cool, and the mood lighting is definitely great...but it feels like it's missing something. Hmmmm.....Oh I KNOW! You're missing a piece of plywood in case you feel like moving it!
