Re: Work. When is enough enough?

Thanks Dutch. I am also grateful you treated me like an adult and not some fool crying for help.
None of which I did.

When I speak to my mates who are full time musicians, none of them treat it...

Re: Work. When is enough enough?

Cheers mate. :-)

I also want to add that people who do this for a living should be able to speak of it. To talk about my career is not showing off. I am just talking about my job. If this were an...

Re: Work. When is enough enough?

We were not married. Anyway, she left me when I broke my back. I am better off. Thanks for your concern.

Also it is not a matter of look at my sacrifice. I knew other kids who died. I am lucky. To...

Re: Work. When is enough enough?

You may well be right. I am not one to believe I am infalible. I have made too many mistakes. The visit to the hospital did worry me.

But you know, head down and carry on. I am not gigging for a...

Re: Work. When is enough enough?

Yes. I ran away from a violent home. Dangerous father. Mother tried to strangle me. Long story. I have spoken of it here in the past. My first job was working on an outback aerodrome. By 18 I'd had...

Re: Work. When is enough enough?

Well thanks Mikel for your input.

A student's father, who is a builder, recently had a serious operation on his arm. It seems strenuous work over a lifetime has left him worse for wear. This guy...

Re: I don't know whether to take this tour or not

Ok, having played Australia for 30+ years and witnessing that all those who stayed, Angels, Chissels etc amount to nothing, and those who got the hell out, Little river band, INXS, Savage garden, Air...

Re: My story about competing in the International Blues Challenge

Great story Larry. A shame the leader failed to realize any member of his band who shines reflects directly on him.

Reading that story from across the globe, well it seems very exotic. Memphis,...

Re: Work. When is enough enough?

Thanks again for your responses. And especially your concern. And Bermuda, your joke. :-)

I don't mean to complain. That was not my intention. The issue on Saturday was a scare. But then I did not...

Re: I'm getting into this now

Kolias is a very fine player. He's really heavily into funk music. Loves Garibaldi. He teaches at the con in Athens. He's got a job in a metal band and kills it. He wants a student of mine to visit...

Re: Work. When is enough enough?

Thanks for your responses.

As Bermuda and Bo mentioned, one wants the phone to keep ringing. I feel I am on a good thing and don't want it to slip. Plus I have to admit to being a workaholic. I...

Work. When is enough enough?

Hi guys.
Working as a full time musician often seems confusing to me. Not playing the music as much as when to say yes and no. In this day and age one cannot take it for granted. And I am fully...

Re: What's the weirdest thing you ever broke on your kit during a gig?

My nose.

Yep you read it correctly. Cramped stage, hats over at the extreme left to fit the keyboards. No mics.... BANG!!! I finished the song then we took a break.

I was very young and...

Re: Yamaha or Tama?

I own a few drums, many of them both Yamaha and TAMA. Although I have not played any new model Yamahas since Sakae closed the contract, I am sure the standard will remain high.

Bottom line, both...

Re: What kills your buzz?

It seems to me you discovered the techniques you actually should have been practising from the beginning, and then stopped.

Isolate the technical problems. Set your metronome to 30 bpm. Focus on...

Re: Snares vs cymbals

On Friday I had a quick session before lunch for a university project. I have a kit permanently mic'd at the studio. I have 20 snares and about 50 cymbals stored there. I went through the choices and...
