While looking over a record deal and 2 tour offers, something occurred to me: I don't want to do this anymore. I've had a GREAT time and made some great friends, famous and not so famous, but I don't want the hassle and grind of touring and putting together bands, rehearsing, or any of that. I'm over it. I'll still record and do a local gig or two, but outside of that, I'm finished. I've got a good job, I enrolled in Hampton University to finish my degree, my youngest goes off to college next year, so I'm going to spend more time enjoying my life and family. Also, I've got 2 novels that I need to finish, and I'm enjoying writing much more than I am playing rockstar and grinding it out as a muso. I've been doing music since I was 16, and touring and recording since I was 22, and I'm over it now. So over it. I'll be holding on to my 75 reissue and practice amp. Everything else, I'm getting rid of. I started feeling this way about 2 months ago, and now that I've admitted it to myself, I feel MUCH better. I had a good run. A really good run! I'm in a happy place now. For all of you still are still doing it, or beginning to do it, MAKE SURE YOU GET ALL THAT YOU CAN FROM IT, because you will definitely leave something! And if you don't love it, don't force it. Cheers, fellow lowenders.
