Re: girlfriends, wives, and the like coming to gigs
I had to chime in on this thread I just couldn't resist. I HATE it when a girlfriend is at the gig. I am there to play and when my girlfriends used to come to gigs it was nothing but a huge distraction. My moto always was hey I don't go to work with you, you don't go to work with me. It really was a pain when I played clubs. Now when the family comes to a gig its much easier, but I still have to make sure their tickets are at willcall, make sure the kids have backstage passes and make sure everything is cool with them before i start warming up. So it still messes with my prep time before the gig, but it better now.
