So Iím ready to go out tonight and check out some bands but Iím thinking how will this be a positive move for what I want to do? I may run into some future musicians to collaborate with or run into the people I want to talk to directly, or maybe Iíll just hang out, have too many drinks and a lot of laughs.
So I procrastinate, not cause I donít know if I should go out but thinking will this be of benefit to my objectiveís in life. I mean I love to hear a good band and hang out with friends, but then family needs time too and Iím not the one on stage tonight.
Then I zone into this motivational speaking cat online. He sayís do something that you donít usually do. Well usually I intently work on things like a madman, practice my vocal excercises, write some music or workout if not doing the other work that has to be done too but is not my cup of tea.
I think what is my objective, where am I going and how can I make it happen. Then I realize Iím probably doing a hell of a lot towards my goals but the change thing, do something different thing has got something too it.
So what do I want at this point in my life. Well Im going to spell it out for all of you. I love music, love creating it, love singing it, love practicing it and love performing it. I want to do all of that a lot more. I also love to give back, make people smile, show love where its shown to me and to those who need to see it.
Iíve done a lot in my life, but Im not one to say o.k. I got that medal or trophy or award or accomplishment, now I can coast. No the energy has got to stay high. The drive has got to keep going, the fire must keep lit and be shared as well. Enough time to take it easy when the ride is over, well maybe, really donít know about the other side ya know. Non of us do.
So what did I decide to do? Stay home, list what Iíve done and havenít done, judge and plan my moves to come and list what Im looking for out of what Iím doing.
Iíll be so bold to tell ya all,
I want to write and record more music, I want it to relate to people so they get something real out of it. Maybe it helps them, maybe its something theyíve been through, maybe it just helps them have a good workout cause the energy is high. Its all about us being ďOneĒ no matter if we accept that or not. I want to do what I love cause like the Christian and the Pagan both say.....LOVE is the greatest thing. I love music, I love it for how it lets my thoughts and ideas and wild side out too, I love it for how people react to it, how they feel, the crazy things women have said, the nice things people have said. Iím glad when it touches people, and that can be a wild ass rock song or the mellowest ballad.
I want to do my part, and we have to use what we are given. Im obsessed with music so I choose the music.
I bet the show tonight was great, but then Iíve got that energy they are dishing out. I better keep figuring out how to get it out to yaíll. Itís not for the money, though we have to look after our families and plan for the futurue, its not for the chicks or the friends or the crazy
times. Its for the mofo Music man cause music has alway been magical to me and it always will be. Its for ....The LOVE however you want to slice it. So bands out there tonight...ROCK ON, ROCK HARD, Fans out there tonight, TAKE IT IN AND LIVE AND RECHARGE and CREATIVE SPIRITS reading this, KEEP it coming.
Thats all I got to say tonight, over and out......
Velvet Revolver is who I'd love to sing for by the way ;)
