You might do a big "soul search" on that thought... It takes a "different" sort of person to adjust to this lifestyle. It has it's plus' but it also has it's negs (the negs can sometimes overwhelm the +s) It's just another job but it has some serious reprocutions: I'll give you a few:
1) Have a girlfriend? You won't for long, when she hasn't seen you for 3-4 months - she's history---->
2) Like to have weekends off? Forget that notion - I barely know what day of the week it is. All I do know for sure, is I'm in a different town because the seats in the venue are different colored from last night.
3) Ever show up late or call in sick? - Not on this ride, if you're sick, you work sick. If you are ever late or feel you can't work because of health - you better have your obituary in hand.
4) Like days off? Our day(s) off usually consist of a 33 hour bus ride from Nashville to LA. You may get 4 hrs to "storm" a mall or catch a movie while the driver takes his mandatory 4 hr rests. If we do get a day off in a hotel - we waste 1/2 of it sleeping. On an average work day I get 4-5 hrs max. If lucky I might catch an hour nap during opening acts' sound check.Then it's throttle down until 2-3am then off to next venue with 7am "IN" I'll post an article I wrote a couple of years ago re: Wanting My Job - I get asked dozens a times a day so I wrote this for Pro Sound News. (I'll try to blip it up shortly) I'm currently working ...lol
