The best part of playing live, is that there are so many variables involved. Different rooms, different crowds, different moods. Each night is a chance to be born again, an opportunity to redeem the last performance, or to build upon it's glory. Even the shit-shows offer a chance to express yourself. The good shows are always hard to remember, because if done successfully, they are a completely out of body experience. First you plug in, then you start to play...and hopefully you don't remember much after that.
