The Motivations , The cure .....

bumped into an old fren yesterday night , where we used to jam all the time and went for performance, and again brought us back the old memories , so called those were the days.....


we used to go for performance , and that made me skip a lot of classes , for me when comes to music or drums , that's the higest motivation gave me. Or i should say , whenever i'm down or sad or in shit , music n drumming gave the push n hit me hard to bring back my ego and others back on track.


i think everyone of us deserve to be down or sad sometimes , but the important thing is , we must find ways to pull ourself back and be strong . giving excuses to be sad is jus doesnt work , at least i speak for myself here. For me , learning from drums is the push , and Deen Castronovo , a very i admire drummer that i always look up to , after i found that cure for myself .... until today , the cure still works for me.





Hahahah.. do ask me of i still managed to play like that , 10 years back maybe , now not even 1/4 i guess ... but happy for myself at least still sit infront of the drums at least once weekly to do something new... and for that , is the commitment... and the motivations ..... the cure :) .

hey hey hey, there there......u r not alone on all this SADness business.....things that u mentioned, i feel the same way! and also, like urself, i don;t really pick up my guitar anymore.....the last time i played and recorded a song was like maybe a year ago....shit....time flies.....sometimes, i don;t even know if i have any emotions left to even write a song or even a single chorus line. but, i do go back to listen to some old songs and imagined where i was at that time in the song and how sad, or angry or happy or frustrated i was at that time and how creative i was.....and yes, MUSIC still is my greatest therapy!!! everytime when i hear soomething good....i just feel alive.....i am glad that there are so many great musicians out there putting out good stuff majorly or independently.......well, the thoughts of actually being back in a band and play shows still exites me!!!! that;s why i LIVE to go to concerts!!! going to concerts is a one big motivations for me......
