My sciatic nerve really wants to stick around, it’s actually worse until after my Friday afternoon appointment.  I saw a massage therapist Thursday night for the 2nd time ever & my chiropractor on Friday afternoon.  I’ll continue to see them.  It’s been almost 4 weeks since I’ve exercised.  Disappointing end to a rather productive year.  All of that being said, I guess it is time to cool it for a bit & relax?  I just started relaxing earlier than I had planned.

I know that Randy Blythe, Lamb of God, considers himself a “travelling T-Shirt salesman”.  Unless you’ve started in the ‘90s or earlier, 90% of musicians can easily call themselves broke.  The lifestyle of the hair metal during the ‘80s, isn’t realistic anymore.  I’m assuming record contracts are being negotiated differently now, but I could be wrong?  Consider the reason behind your favourite musician has a fragrance, alcohol, clothing brand, etc.  It’s because they likely can’t sustain their lifestyle by making music alone.  I have a few Lamb of God DVDs.  What did they do while recording in a home town studio, after 9 hours of writing/recording?  One of them was at home building his own deck in the backyard of a modest bungalow.

I agree.  I don’t want to hear backing track at a live concert either. They have their place with certain groups.  I’d prefer to not need them.

I didn’t get out to any of these shows this.  I don’t even remember hearing about any of them touring in close proximity of Saskatchewan this year & I don’t have a passport!  The best live show I saw this year was the 20th anniversary of the album “Scenery & Fish” by Canadian rockers “I Mother Earth”.

 

How much do you like Soundgarden’s “Badmotorfinger”?  Here’s their ad for the anniversary edition.  My favourite Soundgarden album, but I don’t need this special edition of it.
