Probably farther back than i can remember,
Music has had a hold on me...it's been the one
thing that has never let me down in life. If i need
to relive a memory, Music is there. When i feel
alone, Music has always been there to comfort
me. When the world is cruel and unjust, Music
gives me the strength to rebel and persevere.
The energy passed back and forth between the stage and audience is spiritual.
I can't explain exactly why but Music reaches the innermost part of me, that place beyond thinking
where i don't have to try...i just am. People listen
to Music in the mornings, we listen to Music when
we drive or ride the bus. People listen to Music at work, at parties and we go out to watch Music on stage.
So i want to thank the musicians that have given
the gift of Music to my world, for all your hard work, for all your practice and touring - for all you do!
In the words of the immortal Dobie Gray - "Oh give me the beat boys and free my soul, i wanna get lost in your rock and roll and drift away".
Music is Meditation
