Hmmm, I always enjoy a good stack up gig; ya know, lots of bands, plenty of musicians to chit chat with. Even the assholes in the bunch can teach you a thing or two...like mostly NOT what to come off like.
I enjoy a good jam session, band members mixing it up and playing out some surprise tunes, jamming to some good old timing rock n' roll or whatever they throw at ya, the experience is uplifting.
The booze is always fun!
Another is jamming to those favorite songs of yours, a musician always plays grade A when its their favorite song and its usually what gets the crowd riled up, cause they can feel it.
And of course the fans, I don't know that I'd have gone on so long, if someone, anyone didn't tell me that I kicked major ass or that they appreciated it so much. Its the cherry on top when someone tells you that, like you've come and made a difference for someone.
...when the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace...
