Musician, Producer, Engineer, and nerd.
Music to me is my true language. It helps me communicate what simple words cannot. It allows me to put my overactive imagination into a frame I can present to anyone.
Tour, play in every continent, and make memories.
Too broad a question... I guess a priority on clean, renewable energy... Oh musically? I guess the people who put real effort into their music would get rewarded more, and the formulaic 1-4-5 or 1-5-6-4 approach would fall by the wayside.
Probably The Chain by Fleetwood Mac
A Wilhelm Scream, Propagandhi, The Descendents, The Flatliners, and PEARS right now
Pain and loss are huge. Overcoming adversities bring me new inspirations... Oh, and stepping out of my perspective to acknowledge how pointless this all is sometimes. It makes for good comedy, and keeps it light when need be.
It's a short ride, and none of us deserve to be in it, so seize what you can, while you can, and find a way to love it.
Convenience and home comfort make it harder for live music to seduce the otherwise normal show-goer. A sense of real community is missing where it used to be before social media replaced it.
Could be nice, if it brings about new opportunities... or it could end up another failed Facebook rival.
Watching very talented musicians settle for low hanging fruit.
I get out to shows, I play in shows, and I buy local bands' merch. I also provide a cheap resource for bands to cut albums around here, as I have all of the gear and know-how to make a killer rock record
Confidence, a willingness to try things outside of their wheelhouse, and a never-say-die attitude... and a lot of luck.
