Re: Things that go through my head while I'm playing a gig:
I used to be the guitarist of a band that I didn't really like. I was just bored all the time while we were playing. I would be thinking things like "Man, I need to do laundry in the morning. Do I have any bills coming up?"
Nowadays, when I'm drumming at a gig, I just get so into the music that I don't really think about much. Unless I make a mistake or start to get tired, I just get lost in the moment.
