Okay, I've recently become really interested in doing a concept album. However I find I really struggle to think of a story and to break it down into a certain amount of songs, with each song being a stage of the character's life. So I was thinking of basing one on the life of a real person; do you think this is a good idea?
i think it would be pretty cool.
you gotta do someone cool like bob saget or arnold shcwatstdahikochdenneger
my 6 best friends:
Ibanez Artcore AF75
Schecter C-1 Hellraiser
LTD H-207 7 string
Ibanez Acoustic
It could be

For instance, Cradle Of Filth's new album is about a serial killer

Find someone interesting, and it could well work if you can write half decent lyrics
Concept album are awesome. For example, I love "The Scarecrow" by Avantasia. This is the first album in my life where I loved ALL songs.
