and it was awesome. i saw that it was up for awards and i have no idea if it won any...but it should have. a lot of people who aren't musicians think its always fun and games. but it is not. there are fun times...and as a musician, i love nothing like i love music (god aside for the moment). making music and playing for other people is an amazing high. to me, it never gets old playing music that i love for people who want to hear it.
i literally have tons of people in my life that think it is so awesome that i get to play shows and stuff...they don't realize that music has baggage, and being a musician is sometimes a curse. its not just playing music. its not just sitting in with a band. its not just playing notes. its not just making a record. for most musicians, it is a heartbeat. without it, we would be chickens with our heads cut off. not knowing how to function/act/love/eat.
luckily, we find a way to play so we can function. i guess some guys/gals need it more desperately than me...but i feel the need all the time. i don't obsess about it, but my heart burns without it.
back to the point, this movie actually shows a lot of those holds that music has on a person's life. it shows how hard it is to function without it. how lonely and empty that life can be. how addicting and controlling the life of a musician can be.
if you are my friend, i hope you watch it and learn a little about me, and all musicians. for now, this is the story of my life.
