What Really Matters
I played a show last night at a club and it was a nice crowd and the band sounded great. We do a lot of crowd interaction and during one of the breaks I had a lady walk over to me and say thanks for being there. In turned out that her mother had just passed away and she said that our music made her fill better in that space and put a smile on her face, which was something she hadn't been able to do since hearing of her mother's passing. This was just a reminder to me of what REALLY matters. We spend time chasing money, fame and doing business but it is always good to remember why we do it. We do it because we simply love it and that love enables us to share our passion for the craft with others in the most intimate and sincere way. This is what music is ALL about. It's about the beauty of living and experiencing life. It just helps us along in so many ways. So the next time you get frustrated or wonder if it is worth it, take a step back from the biz and remember why we REALLY do this. Enjoy the journey.
