When I plugged in and turned up loud again for the first time in ages, I thought exactly what you did: "Why the F did I ever
stop doing this!"
Being in an originals trio means I have been pushed to do things I never thought I could do, like writing and singing. We've done a couple of gigs and some open mics and I feel driven to do this. Playing music is pure joy.
