Working concerts is not as fun as people think it would be. When I was in college I worked a local venue. I worked Friday nights, Saturday and Sunday and would put in over 40 hours a week over those three days…. My ears would ring Sunday though the following Thursday. They always made me run one of the super trouper spotlights 80ft up in the air because I could see in the dark and was good at aiming the things…..But I did get to pack up Ron Woods guitar and break down Charlie Watt’s drum set one night…This makes me so happy in my soul... I got a live sound reinforcement degree, rolled up and down the road countless miles as a sound guy, and you've just summed up essentially everything I ever learned along the way in two sentences. This is serious wisdom you speak.
