After practice the other night, I was told that I "push" my band. Not in the literal sense, but that my "input" has been some kind of driving force that's keeping us on track. I never really thought of myself as "that guy" but having more band experience than the others I think I do have the ability to "hear" potential in our songs and the potential in my bandmates when the apply themselves. I'm not a leader (don't want to be) or a ball buster. I just like us to keep our focus and see/hear forward progress. We had a great summer and played out a lot to good reviews. this comment has made me a little self conscious though.
