Wow! Playing drums for All Ages is somethin else. It’s a great challenge adapting new songs, vibes, and work styles of another group. Tom, Derrik, and I have been rehearsing since early July, and time sure is flying. There’s a lot of good hyper energy going on; we’re all focusing as hard as we can!
All Ages initially blew me away in April 09 “From Japan with Love (v4),” when I played with Golda and the Guns, one of the funnest shows I’ve ever played! Their on-stage cohesiveness and raw energetic banter inspires laughter and release from the crowd. I also saw Noodles for the first time too, they rock! Who would have known, 2.5 earth years later, I’d be playing with them both and The Pillows on a tour! ZOMGoodness!
Gratitude and Raditude. Some sorrow surrounds me for the time with family, friends, and other bands I will neglect during this journey, but it melts away; they are all with me anyway! Easily I daydream about sights, sounds, people, places I might experience, until I snap my finger in front of my face to remember I’ll earn every second of this great journey by beads of sweat and dirt from hard work.
