Hi Tb'ers My band just played our last gig on a marathon week. We played Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Its great to be getting so much work, but my fingers are shattered. We usually play about once a week. Just wanted to give a high respect shout out to those who play as a living, it would take some guts. I have to say I'm exhausted and equally proud - its not easy to play till 2 in the morning then back it up with my day job. For all the s**t we read in the media about bands being difficult etc, I can only imagine how taxing it would be to tour for months on end, playing night after night. Don't get me wrong, I know that the bigger bands get paid very nicely for their efforts. I'm just saying that as a player, you would have to be fairly fit to keep up. Your thoughts?
