But herein lies the crux of the matter: take away his "burden" and you've effectively stripped him of his raison d'être.4.
People will hit on them after shows and you will usually be there watching it happen.
On top of that, we’re worried about you and how bored you are. If you’re going to help, by all means, you’re more than welcome as long as you don’t break anything. We were secretly hoping to keep those types of moments to a minimum and only expose you to that sort of thing at, say, family holiday parties. But for normal people, carrying heavy things up and down stairs and then trying to Tetris them into a van that’s too small is a pain in the ass. They sleep on a pile of garbage bags next to a pile of their own vomit. We might be at a party having a great night together, and then I get a song idea and have to lock myself and my instruments (look, sometimes I do bring them with me, you never know) in the bathroom for a while because it's a very good chord progression. It's got to be kind of weird to listen to them, but you're here now and they're not. However, most of my band mates and musician friends basically live on a stack of pizza boxes, whisky, and Muscle Milk. If they are inspired to write something, whatever you're doing has to stop. Also, why is Smash Mouth your favorite band of all the time? All those songs I played you when we first met couldn't have been about you.I have nothing but the nicest things to say about most of them . It’s normal to feel a little jealous, but there’s no point in getting too insecure because this will happen after show. If I’m in a relationship with someone, I of course want to support their career, but going to a bunch of gigs, especially ones that are late at night, can be a pretty hearty time commitment. Speaking as one of those people, it takes awhile to develop thick skin. This is another fact: unless he and his bandmates are explicitly sober, they’re going to be around alcohol and probably drugs, too, and oftentimes getting it for free. This is a saying from my friend, our former “Mind Of Man” columnist John De Vore.
