Call for photograph donations for rock video clip ...

I have to make a YouTube video for one of my songs for the Greek press to link to. They don't want to use the book trailer, they want to use a song that they believe is 'hit worthy'.

The song has a very typical rock beat, is about 2 minutes long, starts off kinda quirky with plucky guitars, then gets heavier and distorted, and stops abruptly. It was my idea of a joke, actually, when I was writing it, but as it turns out, 'they' don't think it's a joke at all ...

I was kinda thinking of a theme along the lines of rock stars drinking wine, laughing, then arguing, laughing, then arguing, but I guess that might be a little difficult and over-ambitious, yeah? Anyway, if you're a photographer and want some exposure (you'll get credited at end of video) please get in touch with me and pitch me your vision! :o)

These are the lyrics:

Love is a Bitch of a Wine (Whine)

How many times have you tasted this wine?
Can you add them up and
compare kisses to affectionate touches?

Because love is a bitch of a wine.
Yes, love is a bitch of a whine.

Do you believe we haven’t kissed with our tongues?
In almost a year?
Put your glass down and plant your butt here.


It’s a long way down the road.
For a beer so let’s stay here and drink all our fears.

Because love is a bitch of a wine.

POST UPDATE! ... VIDEO NOW LIVE! (ended up just doing it myself ...)
