Music is the essence of life. It is fire, it is solace. It drives me to madness and soothes my soul.
To share with others. Simply put, I wish to have others hear my innermost persona as projected within my music.
I would start with ignorance and hatred. They seem to run hand in hand...
The Monster Mash. Damn, I'm old! Lol
You'll have to see my list above, plus SO MANY MORE!
I believe it is my mental instability that gives me inspiration. I suffer from Borderline Personality Disorder and have come to see it as a boon rather than a curse. I can shift seamlessly from angry to happy and to sorrowful and back to elation. I think it gives me a rather unique take on things such as life, the Universe and Everything.
I always have a bit of anxiety at first, but once I begin playing, the world melts away and I am alone and at one with the music.
I see that a lot of younger artists who are equally, if not even more, talented fall by the wayside at times. Music should engender hope and should never be frustrating. We could all learn how to accept what's new and embrace those awkward changes.
It's pretty interesting.
The lack of support from other artists.
I have issues with being in crowds, so I honestly cannot participate in local concerts. I would love to have a low-key supportive role though.
Be spontaneous yet familiar. Bring something they don't expect and then hit 'em with something that feels like home.
Ue-Chan from Maximum the Hormone. Fantastic bassist! The band Blind Lace. Great band, great sound.
