Playing to 20,000 people
Anyway, in the midst of a huge name-dropping exercise she mentioned becoming addicted to red wine and playing on stage with Dave Grohl while in Europe. The punchline to this story was a great quote that I think explains why everyone who's serious about playing music does it:
"It's highly addictive, more than red wine, to hear 20,000 people screaming your name."
Never a truer word spoken ... and the biggest crowd I've played for was only about 2000. I can only imagine what 20,000 people must be like.Posted by Hughie at November 28, 2007 9:46 AM
