I’ve been to almost 400 gigs in my life so far. Being the obsessive type, particularly about music, I have kept a log/review list of the shows I’ve been to. The first show I went to was at age 8, but I didn’t start writing reviews till I was about 14, probably because I was going to so many shows
and I wanted to be able to look back and recall different moments from each show. If I added up all of the bands, solo artists and various types of musicians I’ve seen over the past 35 years I’m guessing it would be somewhere around 2000, maybe more, maybe less. To be continued…….
I was in a couple of bands between 1995 and 2009. I’m in the process of trying to get my crusty HardCore band back together to play a one off gig for an anniversary of a POLITICAL PUNK ROCK zine, record label, distro and
collective that did so much for the Twin Cities scene as well as the national and international Political Punk Rock and HardCore scene for many many years. Hope it works out well! Raise a tankard to good results for this endeavor! Cheers…….
I’ve kept a journal on and off for most of my life beginning in third grade. I’ve written less and less in recent years due to feeling blocked, or that I’ve written everything that I needed to. But, for me, writing is therapeutic. Driving my motorcycle and bicycle are also helpful. Listening to music has saved my life many times over. Going to the gym with my buddy is very much a missing piece of my life’s puzzle too. That’s enough for now…….
