...talking about my mate who jumped off the speakers at the scala show the other night. I been told to give him a telling off...but ah. Boys will be boys eh? Soooooo...Hello! I have been away doing stuff, I wanted to write but I been a bit busy shitting my pants about doing these fricking arena shows. I hoped I would take it all in my stride, but nope. weird dreams started happening again days before I left for Europe. Its always the same, dreams of playing shows and not knowing any of the songs, or playing on a stage that is so big I can't see the rest of the boys...or going up to my gear to find it all smashed up. Now I apologise if I am taking the mystic away for some of you that I don't get a little nervous. But, these were our biggest headline shows to date and I, personally, can never be prepared enough. I do have to say, that everyone else in the band does take it in their stride, and have the confidence and prowess to rise to the occasion, it takes me a little longer.
But....the shows went really well and I was well stoked after Wembley that there were no...how can I say...real disasters.
Did a few shows after which were a little less stressful and more about just fun and playing and getting drunk...and flew back to LA yesterday. Good Times!
Was in the dressing room after the Wembley show and there was a really nice atmosphere and I had one of those moments where you stop and take it all in. It reminded me of something from an old metallica video, and something an old friend of mine once told me popped into my head "these are the good old days". I have never forgotten that. Its like taking a snap shot. I know not to try to hold onto these moments as they pass, but I shall not forget them. Everything comes to an end, I know, but I want to try to fill my cup with memories that help my walk my path, and not ones that poison me and drag me down, and lose direction.....
Pretence alert! ALERT! ALERT! ha. didn't know where I was going with that anyhow. so, yes.
Most people I meet accuse me of over thinking. It's not like I have a daily allowance of thoughts and "...opps, shit I've just gone over my limit...better stop thinking now". I, personally, would prefer to over think something than be ignorant to it. True, when you waste time thinking when you should be acting, or spend too much time thinking about unimportant things. I get it...I'm not dumb.
....and turn (completely off subject again), ironic that if my second paragraph were lyrics to a song they may be considered as.."oooh deep and ooooh moving" but in context of a blog...they just read as pretentious. Just an observation.
I do feel a little all thunked out right now, so I'll leave you with this...........
