No one should be strung out and washed up by the ripe old age of 12.
The music business
My piano teacher. Luckily I got over it by my late teens.
Realizing that no matter how hard I avoided practicing I was never going to get any better.
Losing Band Members that I was really bonded with. Mostly due to Misadventure. Hard to bounce back when you look across the stage for someone that used to be there... and they're gone.
There are prodigies and there are geniuses. An 8 year old SRV clone is amazing but still an SRV clone. An 8 year old who shows originality is something else altogether.
Drama and bad vibes kept me away for 10 years, but I couldn't help it and came back.
I always hated premadonna attitudes, especially from someone who has played for one year and think they are a rock star,when if they only knew what it all entails, send them climbing back under the rock they came from. the last band I played in I had enough of this crap and I mean it I walked away NO REGERTS
I have worked with some of the pros and I will tell you most of them dont have that attitude
Life in General does that to me from time-to-time.
But then the phone rings and somebody tells me to walk out of the pity-party and get back to what I really love to do.
When it turns into something you dread doing. When it just seems like nothing more than work. When no one seems to care. One day I said that's it. I was done. Didn't even touch a guitar for a couple years. I think it took that for all of us to get a better perspective and attitude and appreciation for each other.
I know, they're everywhere!
Doom, depression, damnation, despair, dysphoria.
Jam bands and "doodle doodle" jazz.
1 Dealing with booking agents to get the gig.
2 Dealing with the traffic to get to the gig.
I am blessed.
There's nothing that ever made me want to stop making music.
I waited until mid-life to stop piddling-around and get serious about performing and playing live, and there's no stopping it now.
There is ass-pain to be sure, but the rewards far outweigh the negatives.
Death of a friend, guy I played and learned so much about music with for 40 years. Didn't play or listen to music for a long time following his passing.
Late Nights.....Too much waiting around between sound check & show time...
Noisy Drummers..The list is endless......
When I discovered that being able to play anyone elses music doesn't mean I can compose good stuff I didnt play much for a few years.
Then I got over it and decided I'm happier playing derivative average originals than covers.
Musicians (no offense)
