Daniel Johns (Silverchair) + Josh Wakely project

Well, this video lasts about 25 minutes, and it's primarily director Josh Wakely talking about this film/concept dramatic rock opera of sorts he's making with Daniel.

But if you do have the time to watch it all, the Johns and Silverchair fans will want to keep an eye out for it. I think around the 19 or 20 minute mark, there's one piece Daniel plays that's breathtaking.

But I get the sense this thing will be a feast or famine kind of deal. It'll either be masterful and one of the best (if not the best) most ambitious things Daniel Johns has ever done.

Or it'll be cheesy and pretentious, and more or less come off like many "rock operas" of sorts. Maybe including a couple of nice individual songs.

Regardless though, it's something to look forward to.
