Thanks to everyone that came to see The Boys From County Hell yesterday!
We had a great time, and it seemed that most of you did too. I got to meet a few new people, and I really hope to see them all again soon.
To those that weren't there: You really missed out. It might have been our best show yet, everything gelled and we were in sync.
One guy told me that he liked how obvious it was that we were enjoying ourselves. I'm glad he noticed, and I'm even more glad that he actually told me. I'm pretty picky about who I play with. Not that I'm a snob, more because I don't want to do something I'm not 100% proud of and into. Phoning in a performance happens to everyone occasionally, but it's unfair to the audience that has given time and money to see you. And it's unfair to the other musicians onstage.
I try to play every show like it's my last. Give everything I have. Because you never know - it might be your last show. And if you don't give your all, your next show just might not have an audience.
Anyway, I'm really happy to be playing with Cliff, Vera, Johnny, and Jonathan.
